The drawing of Frank Romero's "Going to the Olympics" was made on 1984. He got paid to draw a painting on a wall inside the freeway of Los Angeles. What I see in the drawing on the freeway is life.

Romero was not really happy about it he got super upset at that fact. He still got paid but wasn't extremely happy he was very much upset , didn't know how to feel.

They should've just left it there to begin with to be honest. Why ask him to do a painting then cover it with paint knowing very well that taggers exist and are going to tagg all over it. Yes he got a ton of money but all for nothing. They should've have just left it there to begin
