June 1, 2016 – Latest Mural

This was a really fun interior project for a girls’ bedroom. Having grown up in L.A. near the beach the two sisters wanted something beachy, so we came up with surfer girl gorilla.

Nov 9, 2015 – New Mural Venice Beach

Aust. clothing boutique moved to their new location at 1219 Abbot Kinney Blvd. I had done a mural there a couple years ago so we decided to give him a makeover before their grand opening last Friday. The opening event was super fun by the way! Here are some shots. isabelle alford-lago, venice beach, art, murals, street art, painting, gorilla

Nov 9, 2015 – New Mural The University of Southern California

This past week I got to create a mural at my alma mater, University of Southern California. It was a collaboration with the USC Annenberg School of Communications and Blackstone Launchpad, a campus based entrepreneurship program. It was awesome getting involved with the students and being back on campus. This coming spring we will host an art and communications event. The mural features a social commentary on interactions VR technology.

Oct 5, 2015 – Projects in Philadelphia

I just returned from a week of painting my way through Philadelphia. In Fishtown I completed a 20x20ft mural at the Reach Lofts, which was converted from an old AJ Reach & Co factory. They used to be the largest manufacturer of baseball equipment for the American League, so the mural stands as an ode to the history of the neighborhood.

We spruced up an electrical box near South St, then did a wheatpaste scavenger hunt for locals to compete for an art prize. The pope was in town so there was lots of security! Good times!
