mundane aesthetic: Tom Van Sant

Every time I go to Fashion Island in Newport Beach, I always pass by the Irvine Financial Building and oogle at the pretty mural sculptures that are outside. They are so midcentury mod- marvelous. This past weekend, I took a few minutes to actually walk around and see them up close. The murals were made by local California artist, Tom Van Sant. These murals in particular were made in 1968. He’s done quite a few pieces around town and in other locations, like Hawaii, that I’ve seen and always admired, but never knew who made them. Here’s a list of his work and timeline. I wish I could find more documentation on his other work, anyone know any other links?
