MURAL TOUR FOR OTIS GROUP

I had a great time with these very interesting folks who help support Otis, one of LA's top art schools (in case you don't know).  

On this 3 hour tour they got to see street art and murals in DTLA and meet 
Stephen Zeigler (118 Winston Gallery) and see the art of Indian Alley as well as learn
 a little about it's history.


We ended up in Lincoln Heights where they also got to see the murals at Gorilla Arts, Plaza de la Raza and my Elephunktl mural as well.




All in all it was a good day with good people and great weather and we finished it off
 with lunch at Zinc.

LA GOLONDRINA MURAL

My newest mural created for Casa La Golondrina in Downtown LA's historic Olvera Street Plaza.

The mural is a quick reflection of the history and culture of both the restaurant and the city.  In the center is the word "LA" in a simple yet contemporary urban graffiti style. The iconic City Hall building appears to the right and the bird to the left is a "golondrina" (swallow) which the restaurant is named after.  The chiles and tomatoes a nod to the savory and authentic food served there everyday.
It's all tied together by the undulating movement of the blue folkloric dress motif.

Very soon I will be making special limited edition prints available through my site and the restaurant as well. In the meantime, enjoy the pics and video below or simply stop by the eatery and check it out for yourself!

Thanks to Vivien for making this happen and to Beth for hooking us up!
