WEST SEATTLE ART: Desmond Hansen’s anniversary mural

More thanks to the person who tipped us about Super Supplements‘ closure plan – they also told us West Seattle artist Desmond Hansen was painting a new signal-box mural steps away, on the northeast corner of California/Fauntleroy. His new portrait of Jimi Hendrix is on the back of the cabinet on which he painted the rock legend four years ago this month. That anniversary, he told us today, is the inspiration for the new painting. He’s since branched out far beyond West Seattle; you can see more of his work here.

    How about a self-portrait, Desmond?   You look good standing next to Jimi.

    It’s nice to see a living artist get noticed for their work and seeing the work throughout the WS area!

    Drove by when he was painting this one. Thanks for the beauty of your art, Desmond. You are a W.S. treasure!

    the man who changed  the electric guitar forever. The Fender Stratocaster is STILL the most popular guitar. Go Jimi! Sad his estate didn’t go to a blood relative.

    I love looking into Jimi’s eyes when I’m stopped for a red light there!  Thanks for your gifts to the community!
