West Coast Classics, 1918 Lincoln Blvd
With, West Coast Classics on Lincoln Blvd, I just asked if they would like a mural and they were very keen on the idea. I already had the James Bond idea and suggested it to the owners. Much to my surprise they already had a photo of that same Aston Martin in their office. The general theme was to combine West coast classic cars with classic movie Westerns and I did some paintings of John Wayne, Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Clint Eastwood in their famous Western roles. It was a fun project! – Paul Dilworth

CLARE Foundation, 901 & 1002 Pico Blvd

Both murals were organized by Beautify Earth and commissioned by the Clare Foundation, a facility that helps people with drug addiction to get back on their feet. I wanted to create something that would stimulate positive thought for both the people visiting the center and the surrounding community. Each piece presents a person in thought. What are they thinking? What have they been through? The birds are flying free to represent the possibility of where their future is headed. Like a bird, they, too, are free to head in any direction – the choice is theirs. – SEL

Mural by Roy the Rat, 2018
Sunset Plaza Liquor and Jr Market, 2602 Pico Blvd
It is a work that symbolizes a lot, at first glance it can be just another mural, but here is reflected all the work for which I have gone through these last months, a work of finding myself, a work to find something that identifies what I live in my present, the way I have lived these last couple of months, a work that I feel happy to put out there, an evolution that maybe some like it and others hate, but all is part of this hard and pleasant life experience. – @roytherat Instagram

Mural of hand-signs spelling out "love"

Love by Allison Kunath, 2016
The Brixton, 2827 Pico Blvd
All of my work is inspired by beauty that occurs between people, and sharing the experience of love is one of the most important parts of being human. The hands that spell out the word “love” are intended to draw a direct reference to the fact that love is something that is built (as if by hand) intentionally and carefully. – Allison Kunath

Mural of horses

Mural by Luca Zamoc
Ameritech Signs, 3015 Pico Blvd
The Pico mural by Luca Zamoc was the first mural to go up during the “Pico Rennaisance” – as I like to call it. It’s special as it’s done by an Italian artist who worked with the community to represent the concept of “stronger together” – hence the horses pulling the rope together. – Evan Meyer

Mural of rays energy

Expanding Love by Uriel Bautista of Six Degrees LA
UnUrban Coffeehouse, 3301 Pico Blvd
Unurban Coffee House has one of the chillest vibes in Santa Monica. The owner, staff and regulars are filled with positive energy. They do open mic nights, it’s cozy and funky. This place’s atmosphere rejuvenates my hope in good people. The mission was to have the exterior match the spirit of the inside. So, I used their existing logo as a focal point and rays of energy radiating from it. With organic ribbons and leaves in visually-pleasing colors, the wall was filled with expanding love. It was an unforgettable experience. – Uriel Bautista

Pastel colored mural

Mural by Risk Rock
Blue Republic CrossFit, 3328 Pico Blvd
I am a color field artist. I try to evoke emotion with color. Painting in Santa Monica is always the best because the energy seems to translate at the highest level. #goodtimes – Risk Rock

The Minor Identity Crisis Mural by Gus Harper
Gateway to Pico Blvd Santa Monica, 3325 Pico Blvd
This mural is a celebratory image of our spiritual journey, and each color column represents different phases in our lives. The elephants migrating throughout the mural represent us on our journeys. The mural wraps around the corner of the wall and ends with a symbol of beauty, my rose mandala. This Mural was born out of a body of work which is concerned with overcoming fear and becoming the best versions of ourselves. I was born and raised in Santa Monica, so for me it was an honor to paint a large mural facing east that is the first thing you see as you cross into Santa Monica on Pico Boulevard. – Gus Harper
