Selena Mural in Los Angeles

On Saturday April 18 an artist by the name Sand One painted a mural in South Central Los Angeles in honor of the late, great Selena Quintanilla.

Sand One collaborated with other brands such as “Mala” by Patty Rodriguez, Honey B Gold, Miche Mobil and Bella Doña to help paint and make it possible for this mural to exist.

Together they invited the public to help paint the Selena mural and unveiled it on that Saturday April 18, two days after Selena’s birthday.

2015 also marks the 20th anniversary of Selena’s tragic death. The mural is located on 76th and Central in South Central, Los Angeles.

Blanca Garcia, a Selena fan from Fontana said about the mural, “It was a privilege because there’s probably people from Texas wanted to be here and we have the privilege to have it here in L.A.”

In the artwork Selena is drawn wearing her red lipstick, making her famous hand gestures that she always did during her performances and wearing her iconic burgundy outfit.

The outfit became very popular because Selena wore it in her last concert, which took place in Texas at the Houston Astrodome.

Selena is also drawn in the mural holding a white rose because it was Selena’s favorite flower. The hand gesture that Selena made while dancing is also captured in the drawing.

On the mural one can read one of the famous lines from the biopic that stuck with everyone since then “Anything for Selena’s.” The guys who helped get Selena’s bus unstuck by pulling it, which was tied to their bumper, made the phrase famous.

Teens remember and admire Selena for her style as well the inspiration she gave them.

Luz Espino said, “She was a great inspiration to a lot of people, her songs are really inspiring.”

Garcia also thought that Selena was a great inspiration for the youth and mentioned that it was important to have the mural in Los Angeles because the Latin community loved Selena very much.

After 20 years of her death, the legacy of Selena continues to touch the heart of many people. Selena was known for her Tejano music and for her iconic dance moves.

Maria Espino from Pomona, Ca. said, “I felt very sad the day that she got killed, I had just got here from Mexico and I was sad but she left a great legacy and people continue to support and remember her.”

At the location of the mural there was candles and dried roses that people who have visited the mural have left there for Selena.

Sand One is a woman from East Los Angeles who paints for a living. Her passion for painting and drawing has made a great impact on her life and career.

As a fan of Selena, Sand One wanted to honor and share her work with all the people that love Selena.

During the unveiling of the mural many people gathered to help paint the mural and to enjoy some food and drinks.

The unveiling started at 4p.m at the location provided on the flyer. People were seen taking pictures and video of the mural.

Many kids helped Sand Oner paint the mural and enjoyed the festivities that surround the event.

Look at a photo gallery below as well as a video story of the mural with people who visit the mural.
