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!

ICE CREAM LAB - PASADENA

Ice Cream Lab just opened their second location in Pasadena and I was asked again to help them with the interior murals. Apparently my mad scientist character has become a big hit!
Look out for more collaborations as they keep expanding their ice cream empire!
