Art Piece Captures Essence of Aldea's New LA Store
We are so excited to have this amazing new mural by noted artist Robert Minervini displayed in our LA store! Commissioned specifically for our Culver City location, we think the suburban "Little Village" of animal neighbors against the LA Skyline is just perfect. Come in and visit us to see this beautiful mural. We're open 7 days a week. 3825 Main St, Culver City CA 90232
This 8'x11' mural is painted with Nova Color acrylic paints based right out of Culver City California. Robert uses a warm palette of oranges and reds, mixing 50's mid-century modern suburban architecture in the foreground with an 80's graphic advertising feel for a modern LA skyline in the background. And all the animal neighbors are beyond adorable.
