|Artist unattributed, Malibu Action Figures, paint on back walls of shopping mall.|
In the meantime, you may have wondered why I never shared any Malibu street art on this blog. Well, there ain't any ... I guess in a neighborhood where no house is priced below 7 figures, such a thing never occurs to anyone, and if it ever showed up, the paint crew would be called immediately.
There is public art in Malibu. The nearby shopping area has a statue of a humanoid hammer. And, as you drive along PCH and cross the bridge over Malibu Creek as it flows into the lagoon, you will see these backwall murals probably put there by the local sporting goods store:
They are definitely eye catching and they speak to the active, athletic life that is had around Surfrider Beach.
Flipping the usual Thursday order, Malibu is on top and here's a view out the office window of my new location, looking toward the hills between us and Malibu:
Across the street is a shopping center with very minimal services and what's there is expensive. Kinda like Malibu. The white lines in the sky are reflections of our indoor overhead light fixtures.
OK kids, gotta pay the rent. See you next week.
