Los Angeles, CA – Vivache Designs, a Los Angeles based art and design studio specializing in murals, recently shared its second mural in the Vivache Designs’ Highway Gallery concept series. With the painting alone taking four weeks and 48 gallons of paint, Vivache Designs created a three-paneled, abstract, hand-painted mural that covers 6,000 square feet of wall space. This colorful, eye-catching terrazzo brand pattern is visible from the 22 Freeway and shares its “eclectic energy” with all viewers. It is the first Triptych Highway Gallery in the world and is adding beauty and positivity to Los Angeles and beyond.
The first mural in the series was visible from the 405 freeway in the city of Carson. The second mural, known as the Cameo mural, is one of the biggest murals Vivache Designs has ever created. Vivache Designs hopes to uplift commuters driving by their murals in these unprecedented, challenging times. Vivache Designs’ partnership with the Toll Brothers of Southern California has been instrumental to this project.
This project embodies Vivache Designs’ love of making an impact and surprising viewers, especially as related to the size and magnitude of the art. “These factors and the building height add a serious layer of complexity to this already big job,” says Michael Che Romero, Creative Director and Lead Artist of Vivache Designs. “I’m painting by hand using ultra-durable, water-borne acrylic paint in a satin finish as well as transparent vinyl adhesive window covers that will be painted over. My equipment includes eight stories of scaffolding and a pulley system I devised by drawing from old school techniques to bring paint and supplies to each level, which creates a unique opportunity to invoke the old with the new in terms of our approach.”
Vivache Designs plans to continue to bring communities together through new projects and hopes to build and manifest a massive-scale LA mural gallery series for the 2028 Olympics. Opportunities for a third mural are being explored. To learn more about Vivache Designs and keep up with these monumental mural projects, click here.
