Smart.MAGNA artist Andre Miripolsky's large commissioned public murals will soon be seen not only in Los Angeles, but also in Monterey, California.

In conjunction with the revolutionary redevelopment of Downtown Los Angeles, Andre Miripolsky was commissioned in 2005 by the Central City Association of L.A. to create a large 3-D wall sculpture depicting his vision of the exploding Downtown L.A. skyline.  In 2006 he introduced this image coupled with his phrase “Viva L.A.” which has blossomed to much acclaim and is very well on its way as part of the branding of the renaissance of Downtown Los Angeles.  This renaissance is expected to continue through the next decade.
