A minotaur mural in Mill Valley, CA
If you drive down Throckmorton Avenue (x street Madrona) in Mill Valley you may happen upon a bright and colorful reclining minotaur mural painted on the side of a building.
It is the creation of artist Zio Ziegler, a Mill Valley native. To learn who the artist was I Googled the "ZZ" signature and "mural, Mill Valley" and found this article from 2011 about Zio in the Mill Valley Patch. There's a photo there that shows what the wall was before it became the minotaur.
To see his most recent work check out his blog at ArteSempre.Tumbler.com. Zio sells hand-silk screened t-shirts and hats on his website ArteSempre.com. Or if you're thinking something bigger and more permanent check out the Porsche he was commissioned to paint in this video:
I recently spotted another mural in downtown San Jose. I just have to figure out how to shoot it because it's not at street level which makes it more challenging.
