Kent Twitchell

As one of the most respected and recognized outdoor urban muralists in the world, Kent Twitchell, MFA 1977, doesn't have to promote his mural ideas to potential clients, the clients come to him.

This prolific artist has completed over 75 portraits of prominent artists and celebrities and completed one of his largest commissions - nine-story portrait of the entire Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra - which towers over the Los Angeles Harbor Freeway. His other projects include the Freeway Lady, the Julius Irving Monument in Philadelphia, the LA Marathon Mural in Inglewood, a portrait of artist Ed Ruscha in Los Angeles and the Holy Trinity with the Virgin at the former Otis Campus. Anyone traveling around Los Angeles can hardly miss the mark Kent has made on the urban landscape.
