Deco Gecko // Harry McDaniel // 2008
“Golden Threads” Musical Mural // Doreyl Ammons Cain
Black Mountain Iron Works // Tekla Dan Howachyn
When taking your car to get serviced you don’t expect to find a work of street art. However, if you go to Davis Bros Tires you will be surprised to find a mural by Kenny Scharf. Sprawling across this auto shop are cartoon-like aliens, LA city streets, fluffy clouds and even a solar system pointing out the location of Grandpa, Bobby and Aunt Kate. This is just one of Scharf’s murals. Others can be found in NYC, Sao Paulo, Philadelphia, East Hampton and West Hollywood.
Technicolor Drip // Jen Stark // 2015
The side of a parking garage in Culver City drips with paint. Well, that is not entirely true. The paint is now dry, but the lasting effect makes the paint appear wet. The piece created by Jen Stark for the Culver City Art in Public Places Program shows white and black chevron stripes alternating with neon yellow, green, blue and pink. The bold colors add a welcome pop of color to an ordinary parking structure.
