A Giant Mac Miller Mural Popped Up In Venice Beach As A Birthday Tribute

Artist Gustavo Zermeño, Jr. beautifully pays tribute to the late rapper with a massive mural of him playing the piano.

If you’ve been out an about in Venice Beach recently, a bright yellow mural has probably caught your eye. A Venice-based artist completed the mural just before what would have been his 27th birthday.

In a post on Instagram, Zermeño says that Mac Miller had a particularly profound impact on his life:

“On the inside, I’m outside, All the time! 🌌 Music is a big part of my life but Mac’s music is on a whole nother level for me. Thank you to everyone that helped make this project happen! It feels amazing to be able to create things I love and truly believe in🙏🏽 #Grateful #92tillinfinity #MacMiller”

The Pittsburg rapper died early last year from a drug overdose, just one month after releasing his fifth studio album Swimming. In the album, he addresses his battle with substance abuse and self-love. The tour was scheduled to kick off in October of 2018.
