The mural stood for about 30 years and was accidently painted over due to a simple misunderstanding due to language. I’m planning to have McQueen back sometime this year. The people living in the house are looking forward to having the mural back. Fernando Cervantes, a graduate student at California State University, LA was doing a paper of me and went to the house to inquire as to the fate of the mural. I had always been told that the house had become newly occupied by some people from South Korea who did not speak English. They had painted it out not realizing that it had become something of a local landmark and one of the earliest LA murals extant. I left the situation alone, not wanting to disturb the people. Fernando discovered that the owners were actually from Mexico and yes, there had been language problems and the mural had been painted out by accident. Now to see if the City of LA will arrest and fine me (as they have been doing) for bringing a mural back that was originally painted decades before their laws outlawing murals. Councilman Tom LaBonge has been trying to resolve this issue and the Mural Conservancy of LA is in the process of having some of the early murals cleaned and privately adopted, thereby keeping them free of vandalism. Taggers do not return when their tags do not last.
