City Paint Phoenix 18 – Fernando’s Alignment Shop

I haven’t had any new hiking adventures of late, but I did come across a nice mural the other day on my lunch-time walk.  This one was kind of a surprise, as I literally drive past the place every other day or so and had not seen it.  This mural is on the west side of Fernando’s Alignment Shop at 1946 E Roosevelt Street, a bit east of downtown and three real blocks away from my workplace.  There are other lesser-quality paintings on a couple of the other walls, so it was something of a treat to find this one.

I don’t get involved in politics on my blog and I’m not going to do so now, but it appears that this mural is in support of the “#nodapl” movement…which you can read about here and here, pages that present both sides of the issue.

My sharing of the mural here is simply to share the mural…the street/building art that I have found in Phoenix.

The second, third, and fourth images are the left, center, and right panels of the mural….

And the following gallery is simply a set of close-up images focusing on separate sections….

In attempting to give credit to the artist, I researched the name/label that we can see in the far right, lower section of the mural, something that looks like “Gua Che Collection 2016,” and couldn’t find anything relating to a particular artist’s collection.  It appears that “gouache” is simply a type of painting…anyway, here it is…..yet another example of iphound art in Phoenix….enjoy.
