"Memory Lane", created by Peyton, The Artist, is a 5x8' painting on canvas composed of oil, acrylic, spray paint, pigments, and 23k gold foil sourced from Venice, Italy. Commissioned by a couple that was born and raised in the heart of Los Angeles, California, the intention behind this painting was to highlight the city's most legendary, historical Black landmarks while recreating the nostalgic atmosphere of the city's regal Black community during the 1940s and 1960s; aka the Golden Ages of Los Angeles. Depicted in the painting, is a thriving community of Black-owned businesses and neighborhoods which were founded between the 1920s-1970s, many of which are still standing. Although these landmarks come from various eras, the overall tone exudes financial wealth, cultural pride, unity, and power all depicted through classic cars, proud afros, well-tailored apparel, and harmonious energy. The culmination of these unique styles, characteristics, and mindsets are strategically brought together in what both Peyton and the clients call, “Memory Lane.”
