The message of the mural is an awareness of overdose and suicide

“The mural will have Amy Winehouse, Anthony Bourdain, and hip hop artist Mac Miller. They are three iconic artists who we lost too soon to suicide and overdose. The message of the mural is awareness of overdose and suicide. Hollywood isn’t all glitz and glamour, there are a lot of people here fighting their own demons within themselves. Their deaths show money and success aren’t everything. I hope it makes people think while they are in traffic and bring a positive vibe into their lifestyle. Art brings people together and starts a conversation. Riding in the back seat of cars, I would look at graffiti art on bridges, trains, and buses and wanted to be able to do that. Now I have murals around Los Angeles. Sometimes I am close to the murals when people stop to look at them. They don’t know I am there, but seeing their interest is the best feeling.”

    This is why we work so hard to make sure we see the warnings and walk with our friends who have demons and feel they are alone. There are times when I see Amy and Anthony and my friend Ellen in my dreams and now peaceful. Their message is one of letting us know we must find ways to reach out. Nice article Lynn.
