“Reminiscence” by Remed
Bringing international art to Los Angeles
NOW Art LA, in partnership with the South Park Business Improvement District is pleased to announce the completion of the latest mural on the south-facing wall of 1000 S Hope St by French artist, Alby Guillaume, also known as Remed, whose influence has reached all corners of the globe, including Morocco, Spain, Australia, several US cities, and beyond.
Remed’s mural, entitled “Reminiscence,” embodies the South Park community not only in the characters it depicts, but also in the way the artist included the community in his process to find inspiration. Before creating the initial sketches, Remed met with district stakeholders to learn how South Park identifies as a community, what it values, and how it maintains these values and identity through the current rapid evolution of its skyline. Remed was inspired to “look to the past to develop on what we have learned.” The owner of 1000 S Hope St, Joseph Emrani, was happy to provide the canvas: “Reflecting our community in art and making that art available to everyone who lives, works, or visits South Park, is an incredibly unifying thing. This piece represents our bold and forward thinking community.”
Remed’s piece brings the total murals up to eleven in South Park, making the district in downtown Los Angeles a unique destination for public art enthusiasts. Murals are just one facet of the NOW Art LA’s multi-pronged approach to bringing art to the community.
