Saved

This is Jesus Saves by Francisco “Enuf” Garcia, done in 2011. He says his large-scale piece is personal; it’s a self portrait and a public display of his experiences and his beliefs. Read more here.

He now attends art school in Los Angeles but returns to Phoenix often and says, “There’s nothing like Phoenix. It’s the place where I started painting seriously, and a spot I still want to come back to every chance I get.”

Wanna see him painting a mural in San Francisco recently?

A few blocks from this mural is the one below. The owner of the house makes accessories out of old inner tubes. You can read about it here.

And, closeby, at an apartment complex…don’t know anything about it…
