My Modern Met

Artist Shane Grammer, who once hailed from nearby Chico, is using his creative abilities to find beauty among the ashes. On December 31, he began painting murals on parts of the Paradise community ravaged by flames. “[I wanted to] paint something that brought hope in the middle of complete destruction,” Grammer wrote on Instagram.

While the rest of the world saw the scorched aftermath of the most destructive wildfire in California’s history, artist Shane Grammer saw an empty canvas on which to create beauty and, perhaps, hope.


Grammar traveled from Los Angeles to Paradise to paint the mural on his friend Edwards fireplace on December 31. It took him approximately two hours to complete. It can be seen if you are driving up Clark Road in Paradise.
