Maybe it has something to do with the proximity to the freeway, otherwise I’m not sure how this stretch of L.A. River’s east bank through Atwater Village became a canvas for car art. Whatever the reason, this marvelous behemoth is the best of the bunch and for awhile now I’ve been wanting the right conditions to capture this big fella and I found them while biking up to Burbank along river’s bikeway yesterday afternoon on my way to do some last-minute Christmas shopping.

I couldn’t tell you specific height and length, but to give you some sense of scale, vertically this thing covers more than half the length of the riverbank wall, basically from water level up to the access road.

  1. Not to change topics, but during your time on the bike path lately have you seen any indication that they’ve fixed or are fixing the lights?
