Ed Ruscha Mural Painted Over

Without apparent warning, an iconic L.A. mural by artist Kent Twitchell depicting fellow artist Ed Ruscha was completely painted over. The Ruscha mural was a six-story acrylic painting that Twitchell worked on for close to nine years. I saw it the last time I was in California and it’s tragic to know it’s gone, especially in such abrupt fashion.
