Graffiti’s Journey from “Vandalism” to Art in San Fernando Valley

Graffiti is back in Los Angeles, and in San Fernando Valley artistes like Levi Fonz Ponce are making murals of iconic figures that are meaningful to the community. And to think they used to be seen as eyesores, as the defacement of public property, spray painted by unruly youngsters out to Stick It to The Man. Vandalism, it was called, named after the Vandals, barbarians who invaded Rome and broke all their stuff. But now graffiti’s become accepted in the arts scene, seen as a free expression of the human spirit heedless of property boundaries, now displayed as striking murals in public spaces across big cities like Los Angeles, wall art for upscale establishments, even as office decoration for more laid back workplaces. It’s an intriguing shift, but how did it happen?

Business Signs for Larry Larson Music Store in Glendale

Premium Sign Solutions fabricated and installed two business signs for Larry Larson Music Store in Glendale. The first is a lightbox sign over the establishment’s entrance, in plain view of both passersby and customers. The second is a hand-painted sign located on the side of the building. It is positioned for maximum visibility for pedestrians and  passing motorists alike. Both storefront sign and mural have a classic aesthetic, befitting Larry Larson Music Store’s storied history.

Larry Larson Music Store prides itself as a “full line” music store that has it all, with a wide selection of guitars and other instruments, as well as ethnic instruments, amplifiers and other equipment, books, accessories, parts and anything else related to instruments and making music. Established in 1956, the store and its eponymous founder have become distinguished parts of the local music history. In their site’s own words: “Not only will you see hundreds of instruments when you walk in, you’ll see history. Many people have said that Larry has created a museum here in Glendale. It is an experience to be had by all, young and old.”

Painted Mural and Cabinet Sign for Sadaf Restaurant in Encino

Sadaf Restaurant has a rich history in Southern California, so when the owner contacted us about replacing their illuminated lightbox sign, we were thrilled to help. Sadaf has a strong brand that we incorporated into their outdoor business sign using acrylic and laminated, translucent vinyl. While surveying the project, we suggested a wall mural to replace their old awning and accent the front of the building. Our skilled painter beautifully applied their logo and tagline as an outdoor mural.

Sadaf Restaurant in Encino offers fine Persian cuisine and serves healthy, wholesome food. They also have two sister restaurants in Orange and Santa Monica.
