Historical Street Art Mural – Strother Martin Mural by Kent Twitchell- Gets Tagged and…

About a month or 6 weeks ago, artist Kent Twitchell completed the restoration (repainting) of his 1971 mural that had been obliterated by graffiti. He called me to help him put a protective coating on it to give it a barrier against graffiti and abuse or accidents IN THE FUTURE.


So, in this very quick video, you’ll see us have a brief chat about the historical nature of the mural, you’ll see me varnishing and then… and explanation of what happened when IT GOT TAGGED A COUPLE OF NIGHTS AGO!

It was “just” a good varnish job… but it saved the mural from getting damaged and this is a basic idea behind the efforts of the art conservation field.

 

So, how did you like this news, this video, this work by Kent and myself?
