LA PERGOLAS : Oliver Hess

If you’ve ever driven on US101 through downtown Los Angeles or walked above the overpass on West Aliso street, you couldn’t miss this spine like metal sculpture. Underneath the span are colorful LED lights that subtly light the night. One of the main brain child’s of this project is Oliver Hess. We have been friends and neighbors at Keystone Art Studios currently in Glassell Park. Oliver happens to be one of the most humble cerebral geniuses I know. He runs Aperiodic Industries, a company that engineers some of Oliver’s creative endeavors.

This day a few friends gathered to help him paint La Pergolas using laser cut magnetic stencils. We spray painted camouflage layers of grey and silver to add texture to the steel.  To read more about this project: http://aperiodic-industries.com/projects/la-pergolas-build/
