Dogtown Coffee (Back of Building, on East Wall), 2003 Main St
Back in August 2014, I had a trip planned for LA (I’m based in Melbourne, Australia) and was looking at painting a large scale mural. My good friends, Dabs and Myla, put me in touch with Warren Brand from BrandedArts who curates large scale murals in LA. I grew up skateboarding – it’s what got me into public art. Jay Adams had recently passed away and I wanted to paint a dedication mural of him, preferably in Venice or Santa Monica (iconic areas for Jay and Skating in general). Warren organized the amazing location at the back of Dogtown Coffee; it could not have been better (it is the site of Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Productions, a landmark in surf/skate and Jay’s history). I also wanted to use an iconic image of Jay and was lucky enough to get permission from renowned photographer Glen E. Freedman to use his amazing image as reference. The painting went really smooth and the locals were awesome. Couldn’t have done it without all the amazing people involved. – Dvate

Mural by Tommii Lim
Belzberg Architects, 2321 Main St
This four-mural installation at Belzberg Architect’s headquarters are an abstract depiction of the beauty found in the simplicity of life. Using forced perspective techniques, the large-scale objects depicted are designed to visually stretch and change depending on the viewers position to the mural. This is my way of reminding people of the endless perspectives that can be found during time spent on moments in life instead of swiping through them. – Tommii Lim
