The Restoration of Gintong Kasaysayan, A Mural by Artist Eliseo Art Silva

The Restoration of Gintong Kasaysayan, A Mural by Artist Eliseo Art Silva

Twenty-five years after its creation, Artist Eliseo Art Silva has gone back to restore his bold and daring mural “Gintong Kasaysayan” with MuralShield and  World's Best Graffiti Coating. It is especially important to protect and preserve this work because it is located adjacent to a public park and is highly susceptible to graffiti tagging.

Regarded by the LA Times as one of the “20 iconic murals of Los Angeles” and beloved by the Filipino American community, it is the largest mural in the United States to depict a story largely left untold of Filipino American history.

We are proud to be a part of this monumental restoration and the preservation of the history it holds.
