Local young artist Dylan Bocanegra drew a 6’x6’ foot mural paying homage to the Indiana Jones series and the artistry of poster artist Drew Struzan. Dylan also paid tribute to Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford in the impressive piece done in ink, chalk, charcoal an pencil. It hangs at Atlantic Aviation’s private pilot terminal in north Santa Monica’s airport, 2828 Donald Douglas Loop. Bocanegra did this at age 17 on the walls of the tiny one-bedroom apartment he grew up in. Impressive and inspiring to see.
