Jovi Schnell Paints San Francisco's New Skate ParkStreet Art // Monday, 14 Jul 2014
Despite the current weirdness and class warfare in the city, San Francisco just got a brand new skate park, which is delightfully covered in murals by Jovi Schnell. We got a hold of Jovi to find out the story behind her new public artwork, which tons of skaters will be enjoying for years to come. Jovi tells us, "The imagery for the mural was inspired by the site's former victorian era amusement park, Woodward's Gardens. During its heyday the park offered its visitors a museum of natural curiosities, zoo, exotic gardens and the largest west coast skating rink of its time."
