After several weeks of work and countless gallons of paint, a team of artist last month completed what now ranks as Echo Park’s largest mural on the brick building that houses Bedrock Studios. The 12,000 square-foot mural is titled “Magic Is Real,” which features a large snake (or, depending on your view, what looks like a large intestine) that wraps around the two sides of the building on Allesandro Street near Glendale Boulevard..
The mural by a group of street artist known as Cyrcle. is the first piece created for their upcoming solo show, “Organized Chaos,” which examines the relationship between chaos and order and chaos and evolution. So what is “Magic Is Real” about and what does it have to do wit chaos and evolution? A statement issued by Cyrcle explains.
The Ouroborus (snake eating itself), which runs through the letters of the phrase “Magic Is Real,” represents the state of cyclicality and recreation necessary for evolution to occur.
An artist associated with Cyrcle said the mural was made from a combination of spray paints and a custom mix of tints and other paint. “Our goal is to beautify the neighborhood and share a positive, engaging message with the public,” he said.
