(Note for photographers:  I could have applied Perspective Correction to view the first photo from directly in front. I do that on occasion.  If I had done so in this instance, some might think I had taken the photo from the owner's back yard.  That's trespassing and I would never do it without the owner's permission.)

Maybe a mural, part 71: Totem on E. 5th St.

Decide for yourself if you consider this a mural.  I found it in front of a private residence on E. 5th St.

Charity Glass & Tint

Photographed Oct. 12, 2016.
Though I didn't see a signature, there's a female artist in LA that goes by the name of "Sand One".  She most likely painted this mural.  Her website is Sand One

Bronx Wash mural (complete), part 3 of 3

The previous two entries, plus an earlier entry (Beautiful Bronx Wash), show the great multi-part mural along the concrete wash between the two sides of Linden Street. You can see the mural from the north side of Linden.

These photos show the mural from east (left) to west (right). The previous entry showed the new part of the mural as it was being painted.

I snapped these photos on September 14.

Update (February 16, 2018): There are four new murals at the west end of this long series. The photos were taken April 17, 2017.

Murals being made, part 42: Bronx Wash addition

Our previous entry shows the finished mural at the right (west) end of the Bronx Wash, east of 4th Avenue along Linden Street. David Aber's photo shows this part of the mural in complete sunlight. Here are my two photos of the mural in progress and (like David's post, but in worse light) the finished mural. There's a note from the artist on the first mural saying “Back on Tuesday!”:

My camera says that both of my photos were taken on September 16, 2016, at 1:50 PM. They couldn't both have been taken then — as the first one shows “Back on Tuesday” — so please take a guess (if you'd like) of the dates.

Bronx Wash mural revisited, part 1 of 3

On March 14, 2011, Jerry Peek posted photos of a mural at the Bronx Wash.  See Beautiful Bronx Wash.

Sometime in 2016 an additional panel was added to the west end of the mural. The artist is Harriet Wood ("Miss Hazard").  I photographed it on Oct. 11, 2016.

The mural is located at the intersection of E. Linden St. and N. 4th Ave.

"Dragons of Character"

Homer Davis Elementary

The artist is Rebecca Carlton and the murals are from 2008.  Though it's hard to see in a 2d photo, each wall has a double curve.  I took these photos on 09/14/2015.

Savaya Coffee Market

Interesting way to create a mural...just chip away the plaster.
