“FUTURO” MURAL @ PALOMAR COLLEGE

Happy to announce the recent completion of my newest mural entitled “FUTURO”.

It was commissioned by Palomar College in San Marcos, California where I spent almost 2 weeks painting the 15’ tall x 106’ long mural.

Completed on April 13, 2019 and assisted by my dad (Alejandro Poli Sr.), my son (Alejandro Poli III), and long time artist/friend Isaias Crow.

EL SERENO HAPPINESS

I was recently hired by the developers at the new Hatchspaces facility in El Sereno to create a mural that showed respect and pride for the neighborhood as well as a connection to the scientific work that would be happening inside this new facility. After many meetings and conversations we came up with an idea that would highlight the four different chemical compounds that are attributed to happiness:
dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. We also chose to highlight local town hero and science leader Willie Zuniga. Watch the video below to give you a better sense of the project.

POSEIDON MURAL

Sometimes a good creative project lands on your lap and the client happens to be just as cool as the project itself. This was one of these scenarios.  Immediately it became apparent that POSEIDON was going to be the subject of the mural. Watch this short video and see how it all came together!

COMMERCIAL FOR PPG PAINTS

Enjoying my 15 seconds of fame! 

Some of you may have recently seen my mug and mural featured at the beginning of this commercial spot for PPG and YES it was all hand painted using actual PPG TIMELESS exterior paints! 

*No aerosol spray cans were hurt in the creation of this mural! Lol.

LIVE MURAL AT SURFER JACK PRODUCTIONS

I was asked by my friend and old college roomie (Van Partible of Johnny Bravo fame) to come to paint live for his colleagues at Surfer Jack Productions for a fun night of creativity.  Sounded like a fun thing to do on a Friday night in Venice so I was game. The big cheese over there is Swampy (Phineas and Ferb co-creator) what a cool guy! We hit it off and I painted their garage doors with a funky character face and some stylized lettering. It was great night, enjoy the pics below.
