Mural Restoration of Steve McQueen Monument by Kent Twitchell Completed



Steve McQueen Monument by Kent Twitchell

Steve McQueen Monument by Kent Twitchell painted in 1971


Today, I helped Kent Twitchell finish up a couple of murals he’s been working on/restoring by applying the final varnish: one is the Stother Martin Monument located at Kingsley Drive at Fountain Avenue in Hollywood and the other is the Steve McQueen located near NW corner of Union Avenue and 12th Street, just west of Downtown LA.

Kent has been doing the restorations with the assistance of the Fresco School (see Facebook). You can see his murals and read a quick blip at:

BTW, for those of you who don’t know, Kent Twitchell is the original artist of the murals. These murals were the beginning of mural painting in LA back in the 70’s. That makes them historic I guess. Historic or not, they are really great works of art and I love them and thankful that they are being preserved for another generation.

Stay tuned for videos and photos of our final work. GREAT ART!!! And now they are better protected from graffiti. See the article I wrote on Street Art vs. Graffiti Vandals at http://bit.ly/qKySHP
