I painted this mural in the back patio of Block Party, a really cool bar and hangout space in Highland Park, Los Angeles. They requested I paint one of the green parrots that lives in the neighborhood. Coincidentally, a couple days after I got this request, I woke up to squawking outside of my window. I looked outside and the tree next to my bedroom was filled with green parrots! I got out my camera and zoom lens, took some pictures, and used one of them as a reference for this mural. While I was painting, different people told me what they’d heard about the origin of the parrots in the neighborhood since they are not a native species. I heard everything from them being accidentally released from a pet store to Oaxacan immigrants of the neighborhood bringing them from Mexico.
