The Patek-Ecklon type and the crown logo are the original buildings signage painted in the mid 40’s. I wanted to make sure I respected the original signage, even though the business is defunct, it’s still a landmark ghost sign for the area.
Many thanks to Poesia, Graffuturism, Derek Chamberlain, Brock & Justin at White Walls Gallery and Michael Covington for their helping hands in this piece.

“We’re always happy to have new street art in the neighborhood and foresee that this piece will be counted as a SF favorite for residents near and far. The compositional building blocks of Structurally Sound (on view until October 5) are expanded to cover the full side of a building wall. Soft hues work to blend the darker forms into the faded Patek-Ecklon sign, making the overall effect one of cohesive beauty. Take advantage of San Francisco’s Indian Summer and come see this mural while the weather is sunny and bright.”
