In the past I’ve glimpsed this super cool mural in University Heights, a neighborhood northeast of downtown San Diego. Finally I stopped to photograph it!

The psychedelic spray paint street art is splashed on a wall of a small, local grocery store on Park Boulevard. The images are extremely vivid and look almost brand new. After a close inspection, I noticed the mural is signed: DEXR EYEMAX PERSUE KUYA FIZSIX 2013.

A bit of research on the web uncovered an article about this awesome artwork. The grocery store owner had painted over a rather dull mural that had become very old, when the group of street artists approached him. The anonymous artists asked if they could use his wall to give birth to a unique creation. He said yes!

And to his great delight, this awesome unplanned mural, painted in two days, is what he got!

Smiling heavenly body and other vivid, psychedelic faces and cosmic images.
