Jen Stark, first featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20, has become well known for her artworks that appear to ooze and blossom into harmonious rhythms of colors. Although she made a name for herself for her intricate paper sculptures, she has since explored a variety of media including wood, paint, plexi and animation- notably, the wormhole and animated dripping entrance that she created for Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Stark’s largest work to date is another new venture for the artist. It is her first mural for the city of Los Angeles and is already iconic to Culver City, where it marks the entrance to Downtown Culver City and the Arts District. Titled “Technicolor Drip”, the piece is a psychedelic rainbow concoction that “drips” onto surrounding buildings. The curators of the project, LeBasse Projects and PLATFORM, a local initiative to restore existing structures in Los Angeles, have just released a “behind the scenes” video of the mural, which you can watch below.
Jen Stark’s “Technicolor Drip” mural is located at 8850 Washington Blvd, Culver City, California.
