Unincorporated Mural Projet

The Unincorporated Mural Project is an ongoing effort to support public art in our community. This wall is a rotating outdoor mural series at our flagship roastery in Altadena. A new Artist every year! The mural grant is provided by Unincorporated Coffee roasters annually.

Josh & Leanna Viers

Josh and Leanna, husband and wife design duo, share a passion for carefully considered shapes executed cleanly.  Josh is a concept designer for film with a background in industrial design and 25 years of experience.  Leanna is a graphic designer with a background in biotech who studied sign painting under renowned Ralph “Doc” Guthrie.  Together they have produced dynamic art nuanced to suit an eclectic mix of LA neighborhoods.  They currently operate out of their studio in the foothills of Altadena, CA.

About the mural: Caballeros & Peacocks

Josh and Leanna moved to the Altadena foothills in 2019, and immediately fell in love with the flora, fauna and community.    The caballeros and peacocks are timeless symbols that represent the neighborhood’s rich history that the couple wanted to honor.  Inspired by the innovative style of Disney artist Eyvind Earle’s iconic work from the 1960’s with a little modern influence from Japanese digital artist Tadahiro Uesugi, the elongated proportions, and simple shapes seen in the mural are meant to conjure mindfulness and peace.
