Public Art in Mira Mesa

I started a public arts project with the help of community leaders and local artists around 2010.  This project took place in a neighborhood I grew up in San Diego to beautify the streets by painting electrical boxes and here are a few of  my favorite contributions.  (That’s me)


This is a bookshelf across the street from the public library.  “My” public library.


This was one in the inner neighborhoods and I painted the local wildflowers in the design.


This large power box was in between three schools and I thought it would be a good idea to put an art history/educational kind of theme here.

This was a fun one for the middle-school that it was in front of.  I was jazzed when I saw kids sitting and chillin in front of it the next day after I painted it.


Two smaller electrical boxes across from each other and in between the busy Mira Mesa blvd.  I wanted to make a homely subtle romantic feel with these because sometimes art needs a flair of drama.


This was done with the help of my friend Aaron Thom and it’s in front of a seafood market.   The image was of Thailand where he and his dad is currently living now.


This was done on and for fourth of July at the park.  Some nice elderly lady brought me some food and we chatted for a little, it was nice.


I made this fireplace closer to the residential  areas on Black Mt and Gemini.  Saw a lot of old friends in their cars honking and saying hi, I guess this road gets pretty busy.


This one was up briefly on MM blvd and was painted over.  I still felt like a cool guy because I finished this in one go in the hot sun.


Helped the Parks and Rec get this box to recede a little when they made this new park by the freeway.
