Jose Roque Body & Paint, Echo Park

On Sunset near Parkman. This area has seen a lot of terrible stuff going on, not only with street art but beyond that. See Christine Pelisek's story about Raven for one tragic story that took place across the street from here.

One mural along the underpass of Silver Lake and Sunset was dedicated to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and got terribly defaced a couple of years ago. It's been a mess since then.

So it was nice to see this new work going up on the wall surrounding Jose Roque's long-time auto body business.

One vintage part of the wall is the portrait of "Michelle." It's been on the site for years, and has even popped up in music videos over the years by Joe Strummer and (I think...) The Transplants.
