the figure 8 wall

The mural Elliott Smith stands in front of on the cover of his fifth and final album Figure 8 is located on the wall of the Solutions! audio-video repair shop in Los Angeles.

In 2017 a bar opened next door, and they partially destroyed the mural in order to install some sweet windows. Bar Angeles, named after the Elliott Smith Either/Or track “Angeles," moved that portion of the mural indoors, but that bar has since been replaced by a Filipino restaurant that doesn't seem to have kept the mural as part of its interior decor.
