An 8.5’ x 125’ x 6’ exterior acrylic mural that wraps around a Frank Gehry-designed building at Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park. The entire mural encompasses three walls of MPK 21’s Lobby 9 with continuous design applied to the sidewalks surrounding the building.
The mural serves as a means of wayfinding for guest to locate the entrance of the building. Since the surrounding space is dimly lit, the mural's purpose was also to bring more vibrancy to the area.
This immersive piece was designed in one week, including one round of feedback. Installation took approximately 2 weeks, with help from one assistant.
This is one of my favorite projects to date. I find so much joy when I incorporate my designs throughout the entirety of the space and painting on unexpected surfaces.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
