Echo Park Mural Touch-Up

Echo Park Mural Touch-Up


 The mural flanking the 1500 block of Colton in Echo Park’s Hi-Fi recently received a fresh re-do, or undo.

Street artist Marka27’s graffiti art — showcasing a line-up of militant farm workers, George Washington in chains, a somber Cesar Chavez, and homage to one of Diego Rivera’s vendadora paintings — had previously been covered by gang tags.

The touch-up could be coincidental.  The artist currently has an exhibit at L.A.’s Crewest Gallery until July 29th, aptly titled “Neo Indigenous.”

Bravo to the team responsible for its beautification!
