I want to thank the The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles for helping me secure funding and commissioning me to restore my mural "They Claim I'm a Criminal" at Southern California Library on Vermont in South L.A.
Originally painted in 2010, the mural was hit hard in the last year with a wave of graffiti that had turned the mural into an unrecognizable wall of bombs and tags.
This is the first graffiti art mural they have ever restored!
Earlier this year, the MCLA stepped in, thanks to my dear friend and Exec. Director Isabel Rojas-Williams. She told me it was unacceptable for my mural to be in that state of ill repair as we were all celebrating the passing of the new mural ordinance city wide.
She worked with Councilman Price from the 9th District to secure funding for me to repair the mural and give it a much needed anti-graffiti coat. We were able to hire SPARC to give it the sacrificial coating.
Now it looks great! Hopefully for many years to come!!
Thank you Isabel Rojas-Williams, the MCLA, SPARC, Razer, Easi, Yusef, Michelle,
Socal Library and Councilman Price for all your help!
