ECHO PARK –– Thanks to Kelly Erickson for these photos of the new, nearly three-story high mural artist Shepard Fairey recently painted on the side of an apartment building on Sunset Boulevard near Portia Street. It’s the same spot where a French street artist had installed a mural of an old woman a few years back.
Fairey, whose studio is located a few blocks east on Sunset from the new mural, said on Instagram:“The crew and I just finished a mural on Sunset Blvd in #EchoPark and it is nice to have a big piece of art in our neighborhood. Echo Park is not as rough as it used to be, but some areas are still rough… specifically the brick wall we were painting on! The mural looks good in the end but it was very tough to get clean lines.”
