August 26 - 27  After the last mural by a San Diego based artist, the Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) is bringing a Los Angeles muralist to Carlsbad. LA based artist, Sand One, is scheduled to begin painting Friday, August 26, 2016 at Senor Grubby’s in the Carlsbad Village. Sand will be painting all day. Mural to be completed Saturday, August 27.

Sand One’s cartoony females called “dolls” can be found painted large-scale all over Los Angeles with over-sized eyelashes, acrylic-painted nails, fruity colors and LA-themed tattoos. The “dolls” that Sand paint represent the empowerment of females within the fast-paced hustle of everyday. Her strong “doll” characters remind us that being a woman does not inherently equal being fragile.

Sand’s art has taken her all across the globe, from Miami to Japan, Mexico, Guatemala and Thailand. She has collaborated with some of the biggest companies including Urban Decay, Jeffrey Campbell Shoes, Sheikh Shoes, Red Bull, Levi’s and NBA Cares.

In 2015, the east facing exterior wall of Señor Grubby’s rotated through 5 different CAW murals—each painted by a new Los Angeles street artist. Each artist was curated by Carlsbad village based artist Bryan Snyder with the goal of introducing new urban art to the Carlsbad community, as well as providing an educational setting for aspiring urban artists. In its 2nd year, the CAW will be painted by both local San Diego and Los Angeles artists.
