"When it comes to sheer touch that combines beautiful control over line and brushwork, yet seemingly spontaneous expression, George Yepes is among the best.  His darkly romantic excess can't help but make you think he would have been Dante Gabriel Rossetti's (1828 - 1882, London, England), equal among the Pre-Raphaelites.  But these saints and sinners are hardly a throwback. Yepes' painting has a visual density and suggestiveness that is as tantalizing to the
intellect as it is arresting for the eye".

George Yepes: St Lucy Church Mural Restoration project: East LA

Thank You!!  We Completed the Go Fund Me Project: to Restore the “El Tepeyac de Los Angeles” Mural, in East Los Angeles. 
 
To accomplish the complete restoration project we worked through two months of Southern California wild forest fires and daily over 100 degrees in the shade! We established the Go Fund me Page to help us provide all of thesupplies, equipment, and expenses needed to complete the entire restoration of the “El Tepeyac de Los Angeles” mural located on the front facade of the St. Lucy’s Church in City Terrace, East Los Angeles. Although we all fond ourselves burdened by extraordinarily difficult times, thanks to over 150 kindGoFundMe donors, we were able to continue the massive restoration work on the overall sections of the 50foot X 50foot “El Tepeyac de Los Angeles” Mural. For 27 years the “El Tepeyac de Los Angeles” mural at St. Lucy’s Church has stood as a beacon of hope and faith for the City Terrace/East Los Angeles community. As part of my expression of faith and my continued sacred vow to the Virgen de Guadalupe to keep her image alive as a resource in the East Los Angeles community, and thanks to the kind support of the Go Fund Me donors, through hell and high water, and with the help of the Academia de Arte Yepes, we were able to complete the massive detailed work of restoring the entire 50foot X 50foot “El Tepeyac de Los Angeles” mural to beyond its original 1993 splendor. 
 
 
Thank you again.
