Address 1811 Ocean Front Walk Venice, CA 90291, USA

Among Venice Beach’s most famous residents, Jim Morrison is at the center of a piece of street art in the city, located at 1811 Ocean Front Walk.

Located on the edge of the waterfront, on the facade of an apartment complex, the mural of Jim Morrison is the work of the artist Rip Cronk. It was in 1991 that he delivered the first version, on a blue background. With a height of more than 10 meters, the representation of the singer of The Doors dressed in his inevitable leather pants is then modified in 2012. Rip Cronk then changed the background color, opting for a gradient of orange and yellow. The face of Jim Morrison has also undergone a slight facelift. Now, the mural is facing that of Arnold Schwarzenegger, another legend of the place.
