ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

If you drive around West Seattle very much, you know the murals. They are almost a signature element of the community with historic depictions of the Morgan Junction, the old Mud Hole where Colman Pool is now located, The editing of the West Seattle Herald, The annual West Seattle Parade and more. But in the last few years more murals have begun to appear in the area that are decidedly different. They are beautifully done, go up quickly and create conversation, mark their locations as landmarks, and add some mystery to an otherwise nondescript surface.

Most recently the north wall of the home of the Evergreen Tang Soo Do Academy, the Lyman Building is across from Lafayette Elementary School has just had a mural added.

The Artist is Jesse Link and his work is not historic in nature but is remarkable in its own way.

Tenants of the building; Evergreen Tang Soo Do Academy & Sea-Town Realty, supported the brief inconvenience of Jesse’s work process, the majority of which took place over 3 days. The previously blank, north facing brick wall now exhibits the approximately 20’ X 20’ work.
