2013 Mural   

On view March 15, 2013 - January 11, 2014 


Skywriting | Daniel Anguilu & Aaron Parazette

Lawndale Art Center is pleased to announce the 2013 mural on Lawndale's north exterior wall will feature a collaboration between artists Daniel Anguilu and Aaron Parazette. This project will be the third phase of the rotating mural at Lawndale. Both painters employ forms of abstract patterns in their work, though their individual approach differs greatly. Anguilu's intuitive approach to painting outdoor spaces results in gestural forms that take shape on the wall, while the clean lines and mathematical forms of Parazette's work  result from a more calculated approach to painting.

This project is generously sponsored by Kinzelman Art Consulting, Judy & Scott Nyquist, Deborah Perl, Mellow Mushroom and Power Electrical.
