living mural dwell on design

To celebrate the rich tradition of murals and street art in Los Angeles, a collective of local artists is gathering all weekend long at Dwell on Design 2013 to collaborate on a series of murals honoring this history while incorporating their respective approaches, media, and styles. As the weekend goes on, this "living mural" will evolve and change. The project is hosted by Dropbox Studios, and participating artists include Pablo Sison, Jimi Vieira, Emmeric James Konrad, KC Woolf Haxton, Colette Miller, Miriam Dafford, Maria Greschenko, Peabo De Pabon, Katie Peña, Norman Maxwell, Marcel Blanco, Ernesto Potdevin, Jr. and Jason Fitzmaurice. Here, Greschenko and Sison get started on their contribution to the mural. We'll check back in throughout the weekend to watch the art evolve! For more examples of contemporary murals and street art, as featured in the pages of Dwell, click through the slideshow. And if you're in LA, check out the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles, an organization that advocates for mural artists and offers walking tours that visit some of the hundreds of murals that represent the rich mural culture throughout Los Angeles.
