Recently, American artist David Flores was commissioned to create two of the four murals that will cover the walls within The Reserve L.A. Formerly a U.S. Post Office, The Reserve L.A. is a 20-acre site that will house Microsoft and TMZ offices. The project concept states, “The Reserve has all the elements required to act as a catalyst for creativity while supporting business needs and the corporate vision.”
In preparation for the grand opening on May 8, 2013, Branded Arts was commissioned to organize and curate the creative workspace. Using a photo of Albert Einstein as inspiration, Flores created this two-story mural that can be viewed through the glass front building. From a distance, it's easy to make out Einstein's eyes, nose and mustache. Then, up close, visitors to the building can appreciate the texture of the bold blocks of bright, vivid paints, set off by thick, black outlined edges.
