It all started with a Facebook post: “Looking to paint a few more murals in Paradise," Shane Grammar wrote. "Anyone have a canvas?” https://lat.ms/2MSJW4J
Grammar went on to paint more than a dozen murals on the ruins from Camp fire, adorning broken concrete walls and rusted cars until they were excavated and the murals crumbled to the ground. https://lat.ms/2MSJW4J
He titled a piece on a blackened chimney “Beauty Among the Ashes.” One woman wrote on Facebook: “Love that there is something beautiful to look at in the midst of the devastation.” https://lat.ms/2MSJW4J
Despite some residents’ claim that Shane is profiting from the disaster, Shane insists that his mission, to bring hope where there seems to be little left, is pure. https://lat.ms/2MSJW4J
