People walking north on Los Angeles Street in the Fashion District might notice something different — it’s a new black and white mural along a nearby wall. The artwork, created by Tommii Lim, went up at the end of April, accompanied by a community party where people could help paint a section.
The work covering a 2,000-square-foot wall at 737 S. Los Angeles St. depicts three women watching rockets zoom across the sky, and was inspired by the neighborhood, according to Lim. The mural was sponsored by the community group Ayan and the nonprofit NOW Art.
“I’ve painted murals all over the world, but it’s very special to bring something to Downtown Los Angeles where I’ve been living and creating for over a decade,” Lim said in a prepared statement. “It was amazing to include so many people in the creation of this piece.”
