New MJ Mural
Owen has been an MJ fan for as long as he can remember. He decided to come to LA to do a mural of MJ. He was very surprised that there were not more murals of Michael here in LA, as am I!!! Owen was told that he could do the mural at The Graff Lab and he chose the 'Dangerous' eyes for two reasons, one being that the "Dangerous" album had always spoken to him and more importantly because he wanted to portray Michael in a way that no one could judge him. As he has felt and I agree, that people are always judging Michael on his looks and not seeing who he really is. So he chose to paint his eyes. The part of Michael that spoke volumes to all of us. Those gorgeous chocolate orbs that truly were the windows to his soul. As I spoke to Owen and was looking at the mural, I caught myself gazing into those eyes and again I was drawn in to them. Owen has done great justice to Michael's eyes and I for one, am happy and thankful that he chose to share his talent with us.
While some may miss the previous mural which was also impressive on it's own, it is nice to see a new incarnation of Michael on this huge wall at The Graff Lab. Tomorrow, August 1, there will be an unveiling of the mural along with the Thrill The World dancers. If you are in town, tomorrow or any other time, I suggest you get out to The Graff Lab and see Michael's beautiful eyes. You won't be disappointed.
