  1. So the mural ordinance seems to prohibit murals on residential buildings with fewer than 5 units. What exactly constitutes a mural? Can I paint a stripe on a wall? Can I paint 3 stripes on a wall? How about a geometric pattern, a circle, or a field of circles. What happens when then field of circles gets mixed in a viewers brain to form a recognizable image? Can the lines only be flat geometrics or can volume be expressed as is the case with much grafitti art? This would seem to unfairly restrict representational art in favor of abstract art and wasn’t preferential treatment the problem in the first place?
