Art as Inspiration

June 29, 2017

 

 

   Happened upon this lovely Somerville mural by artist Liz Manche titled "The Soul's Journey as a Series of Weird Automobiles." After some research, I discovered that the painting is a tribute to Al Riskalla, a beloved auto mechanic who ran ABJ Auto Repair. Manche says: "We kind of start out as the Beetle, which is small and ordinary, but containing the seeds of greatness, then you go through a middle period, which is ( ABJ mechanic) Wendell’s old Vanagon, when you’re embroiled in life and all its confusions. Then with luck you come out the other end only by realizing you’ve been a magnificent being the entire time."
