How honored I am to have been an accepted artist to help beautify Burbank streets by being assigned a utility box to paint!
On October 12, 2015 I started the process of cleaning and priming my box. Seven days later I clear coated my painting to protect it from the elements and any possible graffiti. I chose a cubist composition due to the box shape, size and having to paint around the DWP Stickers. I wanted to paint something bright and chearful.
The days were quite hot while I was painting, but in the end, it was well worth the effort. Knowing that this is a permanent public piece of art to be enjoyed by folks.
Here are a few photos of the process and the completed box.
If you're in the area go take a look.
This is the first in a series, (hopefully) that Burbank is organizing in conjunction with the Department of Water and Power. There were seven of us artists on this first run. I hope to see and share photos from the other artists as well.
The location of my box: 601 South San Fernando Blvd., Burbank, CA 91502 Robert R. Ovrom Park]
