Ash Chan, Owner/Creative Director of The Container Yard, had the following to say about the new festival:


By bringing this festival to the district, we aim to showcase the district’s haven for talent and creativity. Pursuing our love for the arts and creative building has been a joy, and we’re most grateful to companies like Hansen’s, as well as the many artists who have supported us in our original experiments.


According to The Container Yard, Fresh Coat Mural Festival was created to activate art, and grow its diverse community in the LA Arts District, while showcasing the more obscure urban areas and various talents that embody the heart of the city.
