Skid Row Mural - Los Angeles

This Mural painted with RETNA was a collaboration with Estevan Oriol and The Jonah Project, a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization dedicated to aiding the homeless. Located on 6th and Crocker, in the heart of LA's Skid Row, the mural is both a tribute to the community and a reminder of the perseverance of Skid Row’s homeless. This is our second collaboration with Estevan Oriol. In preparation for the mural they went to Skid Row to interact with various members of the community and photograph people that they felt embodied the spirit of Skid Row. The text to the right reads: Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.

More to come...
