Joseph Lapin La Weekly Blog 10 Essential Beat Generation Landmarks in Los Angeles
The mural is at 518 Rose Ave, on the strip that is bringing hipster culture to that side of Venice. The mural contains other facets of unknown Venice. The mural grew directly from the Becoming the Circle mural painted in 2002 on the Pioneer Bakery, a place that for stood on the site for a century. The developers sought me out when they learned that a mural had existed at the site previously.
This is the third mural that I have painted with Mary. Although this mural is a sidewalk level mural and is on a smaller scale than a majority of my murals, we continue to receive great feedback from residents and passerby. The mural underlines the difference between much of the street art seen in Venice; work that is created with less regard to site, cultural histories and realities and murals like this one . The majority of the murals and public art I facilitate and help create provide a departure point to examine identity and local culture in a celebratory and inclusive manner. Viva Dogtown!
