Richard Bolingbroke creates neighborhood mural

News from Shipyard artist Richard Bolingbroke:

I am currently painting a mural on a 30-ft x 10-ft plywood wall that was recently erected at 628 Shotwell St. (at 20th St.). It was already being tagged and looked ugly.

Since I have both materials and an almost-ready-to-go design i decided to just go for it. I’ve been there almost every day for the last week 12-5 and it’s coming along well. The weather has cooperated so amazingly – pure sunshine all week. I think it’s going to look great. The neighbors are really happy.

Since I’m starting work at SFO tomorrow installing a huge multi wall piece by Craig Calderwood three days a week for the next 10 weeks I’ll only be working on my piece Mondays and Tuesdays.

This is what it looks like so far. Happy painting.
