Kent Twitchell Jesus Mural at Biola University – Restoration and Conservation 2011

This is Video #1 on the Evaluation and Testing of the mural prior to restoration and conservation

This is Video #2 on the regeneration and consolidation process of the top glazing layers and varnish that Kent used originally  in 1991 that have whitened and are cracked and flaking. This work was done prior to and in preparation for Kent’s pictorial restoration.

This is Video #3 of Kent’s restoration (repainting) of the figure of Jesus. See the spectacular results. Kent’s work ethic, professionalism and quality of painting blows my mind!

    I`m from korea and living in dubai. I can`t english very well. little bit..becase just living 7 month in dubai. My job was mural in my country. I really love it. So your information is very nice to me. I hope learn the mural more ….:) I`m anxious to know more.

  23. The Biola video is fantastic! Kent has done a superb job and he is very fortunate to have you and others from FACL to assist him in restoring his magnificent art pieces. Kent Twitchell was one of the first muralists that created magnificent public art throughout the greater Los Angeles area beginning in the early 1970s. One could not call herself/himself an Angeleno should one not be able to easily identify “Bride & Groom”, “Steve McQueen Monument”, “Strother Martin Monument”, “Harbor Freeway Overture”, and “Seventh Street Altarpiece”, to mention a few, as Twitchell creations. Twitchell’s realistic style is readily recognizable and unique. I am extremely grateful to one of our greatest, Kent Twitchell, for helping to make Los Angeles recognized as one of the mural capitals of the world. With his dedication and with the help of FACL, Twitchell is striving to return Los Angeles to its former mural glory. Thank you Kent Twitchell, your Biola mural is, of course, magnificent!
