Graffiti: A beautiful mural in SF

While heading to Flax Art and Design, I saw this beautiful mural in their parking lot. It’s a great store already, and this just made it even better. According to a small sign inside the store near the exit, this mural was painted in October, 2012 by the duo HERAKUT. It was supposedly painted as the 7th mural in a series to introduce characters from a series of children’s books they were working on in collaboration with Jim Carrey. Though I don’t seem to be able to find anything on a published children’s book, the idea is cool all the same. You can read about it more, and see more pictures, on the Flax Website. For now, here are the ones I took. What I especially noticed about this mural was the beautiful fusion of loose, suggestive drips and lines, with the lovely intricate, realistic work on the faces and bodies.  All around a lovely work of art.
