Local artist Jane Kim creates “Flora from Fauna” murals in downtown Redwood City

Visual artist and science illustrator Jane Kim is currently in the midst of working on “Flora from Fauna,” six interactive murals where bald eagles, squirrels, deer, a great blue heron, a fox and even a domestic dog dwell. 

A detail from “Flora from Fauna,” a series of six murals being created by artist Jane Kim.
Utilizing acrylic paint and latex exterior house paint as her media, Kim began the project on March 15 and expects to complete it by the end of April, weather permitting. Her murals will be located on the exteriors of La Tartine, Arthur Murray Dance Studio, Polam Federal Credit Union, Marshall Street parking garage, 870 Jefferson and on a bench near city hall.

A celebration of the natural world, the purpose of the murals are to instill in the community a desire to love and protect the earth through art. It's Part of the Redwood City Improvement Association’s efforts to bring beauty to its downtown.
