Lilyan Fierman Walkway Mural by Luis Sanchez
In 2016, the Arts District was thrilled to announce a mural award to local artist Luis Sanchez. http://www.luissanchezfineart.com/ The mural award is part of the City of Los Angeles’ One Percent for the Arts Funding, negotiated by the Council 15 Office. The mural is on the east wall of 454 West 6th Street in the newly renovated Lilyan Fierman Walkway, connecting 6th street with the municipal parking lot on 5th street. The mural was officially unveiled on February 2, 2017.
Born in Mexico City, Luis Sanchez is a fine art painter, sculptor and muralist and painted one of the eleven DOT boxes on Harbor Boulevard. He has been a self-employed artist for over twenty-years, exhibiting painting, sculpture in at Premio Bugatti, Italy, the Los Angeles Art Show, Art Basel, Miami and many other galleries, residential and commercial commissions in a wide range from decorative to trompe l’ oeil. Luis notes, “When looking at the history of our historic theatre, its incredible design and history, I wanted to show a tale of past, present, music, dance, movement, celebration of the arts, as well as the diverse culture of San Pedro. I also used some of the applied design aspects from the interior of the Warner Grand.”
