New Work in Progress

Another Work in progress ‘ii’

‘Bridge’ Mural

‘Bridge’ 10’ x 12’ mural art for Angel City Brewery’s Heritage Festival. Thanks to everyone for coming out to participate in this live event. Hearing many of the conversations spoken after everyone threw their worries away helped create the title of this piece. A special thanks to @kfrags, @mrscheyanne, @lucid_morgan, @artshare_la & @ely2000k and all the Angel City Staff for all of your help with organizing and assisting throughout the event.

Mural at Angel City Brewery

May 26 I’ll be painting a mural ⚡️LIVE⚡️at Angel City Brewery during their Heritage Festival and ✨YOU✨ will have the opportunity to participate in the creation…

The first 150 people that come to the event will be able to take an egg filled with pigment and write their latest concern, failure, or worry on the egg and at a scheduled time, we will all throw our eggs against the wall of the mural. So together we will put away all of those frustrations and make something beautiful out of it as I’ll incorporate the colored pigment thrown at the wall into the design of the mural.

There will also be a live band, great food and other surprises. Hope to see you there!

Leah Smithson x Angel City Brewery: Live Interactive Mural

I’ll be doing a live painting in connection with Angel City Brewery on May 26 during their Annual Heritage Festival. Much of my artwork is related to finding beauty among chaos. One way we can do this is by letting go of things we can’t control so we can put our energy towards things we can. In connection with this mission, this mural will be interactive.
