A modern reinterpretation of Mount Rushmore in L.A.

A Mount Rushmore mural is not exactly what you would expect to see in L.A. or anywhere else for that matter. But there are many surprises out there. This is one of them and it’s a very beautiful one too. This mural can be seen in L.A. and it has been created as an homage for this year’s Independence Day. The idea itself is very original and unique but the surprises don’t stop here.

The design of the mural is quite unusual too. It’s not a faithful image of Mount Rushmore but a modern and much more colorful reinterpretation of that image. It was all thanks to Sao Paulo-based street muralist Eduardo Kobra. He traveled all the way to L.A. just to create this new mural. It’s his own interpretation of South Dakota’s famous Mount Rushmore. The imaged present on it are very beautiful and very well-detailed. Also, they are very colorful.

What’s also very interesting about the mural is the fact that seen from up close, it’s nothing but a series of juxtaposed geometrical shapes with different colors, shapes and sizes. They cover the portraits and complement them in an unusual and unique way. The talented painted managed to create a very modern version of the famous landmark. He was commissioned to produce the piece for an unveiling on this year’s Independence Day.
