Before & After Miripolsky

It has been a few weeks since the completion of "Urban Waves" located at the Museum of Monterey at the Custom House Plaza near Fisherman's Warf in Monterey California, created by Andre Miripolsky. This mural has been receiving many thumbs up from the bicyclist and joggers, locals and visitors from around the globe that come by the newly painted wall. I feel so honored to be a part of this project and to be, making waves in Monterey. Take a peek at the photographs I have taken.

Here are the before and after shots. This is the longest mural I have worked on thus far in my artistic career and capturing all of the 275ft Urban Wave with one photograph, like I am more familiar with just will not cut it, but enjoy these two images and I hope where ever you are you will one day venture to Monterey, where many of California's 'firsts' happened. As they say in Monterey, "California was started here" and as Andre Miripolsky would say to keep the energy alive with the painting crew, "Monterey, Ole!"

People have already been using the mural as a backdrop for their photographs.
