Graffiti-style artist Guy Ellis recently put the finishing touches on a 250-foot-long, 20-foot-high mural that’s bringing more than a spot of color to the back of Idealab’s building in Christensen Alley.
The “Dream to Reality” mural, which took about a month to complete, is a collaboration between ArtStorm, tech incubator Idealab and the Pasadena Arts Council’s Emerge program for up-and-coming artists. ArtStorm is an organization that encourages youth to create aerosol art in a legal, non-destructive way.
Star-News reporter Janette Williams will have a story on the mural in Saturday’s paper.
