Art Conservation of Murals by Thomas Suriya Art Conservation of Murals by Thomas Suriya

Water damage, fading of colors and paint and a whitened crystalized varnish layer had made these murals only a ghost image of their former glory. This page shows the exciting/interesting processes of mural restoration and art conservation and the transformation that took place on these gorgeous, monumental murals (6,600 sq. ft.) of fruit and vegetables on the front buildings of the Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market in 2011. They are a landmark and pride in the community.

The fun part about this website is the videos! See below…

This project was undertaken by Scott Haskins and Fine Art Conservation Laboratories (FACL, Inc.) on behalf of the LA Produce Market management. The art conservation/restoration work was done under the guidance of the original artist, Thomas Suriya after the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles (CRA/LA) asked Scott Haskins to contact the artist

  1. I don’t even understand how I ended up right here, however I thought this
    submit was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re going
    to a well-known blogger when you are not already. Cheers!

  2. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this,
    like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe
    that you simply could do with some percent to
    power the message house a little bit, but other than that,
    this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
