STREET SIGNS - Magic is Real
I was born in the Year of the Snake, and ever since I learned about the ancient symbol of ouroboros (a serpent eating its own tail) in school I've been intrigued by it. It was the image on a birthday invitation a friend designed for my 29th bash, and I've always wanted to get a snake tangled in a figure 8 and biting its tail tattooed on my leg. The artist team known as CYRCLE entwined the creature into the Magic is Real mural adorning two sides of Bedrock LA (1623 Allesandro St.) in Echo Park. A lot of great music has been created within those walls, and CYRCLE's piece – which transformed a plain, brick edifice into a vibrant work of art – reminds us that magic is indeed real.
