Monday Mural| Hollywood Boulevard

Hollywood Boulevard mural

This week, Tipsy from the TRIP returns to Monday Mural with the picture of an enormous piece of art from the ‘little Hollywood’ in Disney’s California Adventure ParkΒ in Anaheim, California. Let’s call it the Hollywood Boulevard mural, for now.

I found this mural when I was on Hollywood Boulevard — not the real one — but the one in California Adventure Park, where Disney has tried to create parts of several attractions of the ‘golden state.’ As such, there is an area in the park that is called ‘Hollywood Land’ and in it, is a mini-Hollywood Boulevard and a Sunset Boulevard, too.

The Hollywood Mural

This mural is at the end of Hollywood Boulevard, where it intersects with Sunset Boulevard. When I first saw this, i.e when I entered the ‘boulevard’ I thought it was a big board with painted blue skies and clouds set up as a back ground for the street. It was only when I got up-close that I realized that that painting at the end of the road had some buildings also on it, making it look like the street extends into the mural.

When I say ‘big,’ Β this is how big it really is in comparison with the size of us humans —

Look at the sheer size of the mural!

It was only when I was at the end of the Sunset Boulevard at Hollywood Land that I noticed that the Hollwood Boulevard Mural I had seen, was actually on the back of a building. Here’s what it looked like when I looked back at the painting —

The mural, from the end of Sunset Boulevard. I wonder who painted this.

  1. Wow, it’s huge indeed! And very well done.

  2. Looks like a very well done movie background. Very well executed. If you are on a little distance you can believe its real. Great mural, great find.

  3. It is huge! Thanks for sharing.

  4. That is one large mural and very nice.

  5. Whoever painted it has done a swell job.

  6. Wow, you are back in the new year 😊

    Good to see your post. Reminds me of the various hotels in Las Vegas which have their own themes, like Venice or Rome or New York etc…much like the theme in those murals. Even the sky looks real in those hotels.

    Btw, happy new year.

    • Hey Alok!
      Yup! I’m back, after what seems like a long break. I ran into some technical issues and then some more of them. And I used the time for some projects at home. Gosh! but I missed blogging so much!! πŸ™‚

      Nice to see you back here, also. πŸ˜€
      A trip to Vegas is long overdue. I’ll look out for the little reproductions there in the Sin City. Thank you, Alok.

      And Happy New Year to you and your lovely girl. πŸ™‚

  7. Welcome back. Fantastic trompe l’oeil murals. You wouldn’t accept anything less intriguing from the Disney folks. Thanks for contributing to this week’s Monday Mural.

    • I just learnt a new term — trompe l’oeil murals.
      Thank you. πŸ™‚
      From Disney — definitely not! I’m so impressed by the company’s perfection in everything.
      And thank you so, so much for hosting this meme. πŸ™‚

  8. Stunning!!! amazed πŸ™‚

  9. Wohooo! That’s crazy huge. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

  10. We were here 3 weeks ago! I love this mural. We happened onto a streetcar full of performers at this spot and followed it as they sang. Then they all hopped out and danced and sang on the steet, joined by Mickey. So fun! Happy New Year!

    Wow! That’s a gigantic one and, quite beautiful!

  12. Welcome back :)Beautiful post and pics.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2017.

  13. Wow! This is a beautiful mural. Great captures πŸ™‚

  14. For some reason, I am not getting your feed, and it is not in spam also. I tried to subscribe again but it does not give me an option by email and only gives me XML type page.

    BTW I did read the post and love the blue sky in murals πŸ™‚

  15. One may confuse it with the real sky πŸ™‚

    • Quite realistic, isn’t it?
      I love how the roads — the real one and the one in the picture seem to merge into each other. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for stopping by, Amit. πŸ™‚

  16. Very well executed . somebody told me that the same thing ( But not so big) is in Delhi some where . where it is , I dont know .

  17. Such a fantastic piece of work!! Looks so real…

  18. Awesome work! Must have been undertaken by a team of artists and experts from other technical fields..
    The very concept of doing it on the back wall is far fetched!
    Thank you Divya for this wonderful sight πŸ™‚

  19. It is an amazing work of art. I would have never guessed the fact about the building at the edge of the street but for your tip!
