Westchester Mural Project by Aly Timbuctustate

Aly Timbuctustate is an artist/fashion designer whose work focuses on the dialog between the esthetic of the so-called “primitive world” and its modern urban counterpart.

“You are Beautiful” mural in the Westchester community was set to celebrate and commemorate the historic LAX-centric neighborhood just north of the Los Angeles airport.

"You Are Beautiful" mural expands along the 100-ft wall bordering the parking lot facing inwards to the Plaza

Special thanks to Karen Dial, Miki Payne, and the team at Drollinger Properties, for envisioning how art can reflect community and inspire the public. This is a mural that showcases the legacy of some of the individuals in Westchester that helped to build this community and showcases the diversity of the cultures and the peoples that reside there. We loved working on this project as it brought together all the elements of what makes public art a positive, powerful experience. Special thanks to Cadmar Haynes for assisting Aly and really making this into a reality.
