Isle Valfre Mural

The renowned Isle Valfre created this mural of three cartoon-like girls, each with their own persona and flair; it's easy to see why Valfre's artwork is a worldwide inspiration.

Roy Gonzalez "Surfing USA" Mural

1815 K St, Sacramento, CA 95811

Roy Gonzalez is a well-known artist from Laguna Beach, California. His style is recognizable and one-of-a-kind, and his primary influences include Southern California surf culture and celebrities. I couldn't find an explanation for this mural, but my first takeaway from this piece is a depiction of a bi-racial George Washington riding the wave with Abe Lincoln. The Northern California flair shows through the character's Mac Drizzle "Thizz Face," and possibly some hint of Illuminati, which Jay-Z is rumored to be associated with.

This is just my interpretation, and I hope each mural makes you dive deep, and ponder what the muralist is trying to convey! You can find this piece on the same wall as the Valfre Mural!
