El Sereno – Our Town

Musician and long time El Sereno resident, Francisco Aguilarios, had an epiphany 8 months ago as he w alked along the L.A. River and under the Broadway Bridge, near Lincoln Heights. He caught a glimpse of a magazine article in a worn out issue of Citizen L.A. that lined his path. The article featured Boyle Heights muralist, Fabian Debora . Upon reading it, Francisco immediately made it his personal mission to find Debora, for he though t, “he is the one” who will restore the faded mural outside of Nate’s Liquor Store on Huntington Drive. It was painted by his friend, El Sereno artist, Richard Ruiz , in the early 1970’s. Today, nearly 30 years later, in its dim glory, the mural’s bottom portion has been replaced with grey paint due to continuous tagging.
