Notice anything different about Discount Builder Supply lately? The builders and contractors did. In addition to the lumber and paint, they found artists Jennifer Ewing and Leo Germano finishing the Mission’s latest mural. The two-part mural surrounds the entrance door, giving the patrons an inside peek into the local store.
The store manager, Shannon Brundieck, says that Discount Builder Supply has been in the Mission district for years, but the boring concrete building hadn’t morphed into something worth looking at…let alone, why would anybody want to come inside? Light bulb! Painting a mural not only makes the building fit into the Mission district, but it gives the company the personality that it deserves.
The mural is a play on the eyes. It fits into the mustard-colored building and features two windows into the store. A passerby will be in awe at the realness of the people and décor painted on the mural.
Ewing and Germano are skilled artists who came together in harmony. Ewing was responsible for the color scheme and the people, while Germano came up with the general composition.
Check out the mural any time during store hours, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
