SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - An artist from Miami is traveling to all 50 states to call for peace.

Kyle Holbrook started “Moving the Lives of Kids Community Mural Project” using his artwork to respond to gun violence.

He pained a mural in the Starland District off Bull Street.

He said he’s lost 46 people to gun violence and he hopes his art is a healing place.

“I wanna utilize the hands for peace because a lot of times we talk about gun violence and gun law reform is a part of it, but that’s not gonna do it by itself. We really need to focus on humans and hands because a lot of times people that are going to violence were victims themselves,” said artist Kyle Holbrook.

Holbrook said through this movement, he has painted murals in 42 states.
