Mama Irene Mural

The street art in my neighborhood is good.

There’s always something wild at the Taschen store.

This one I walk by all the time, and I got to wondering, who is Mama Irene?

Some local Latina community leader?  Is she wearing gardening clothes?  A pioneering urban farmer?

Seen here with my colleague Ted for scale:

Turns out, this is the mother of EDM impresario and Electric Daisy Carnival founder Pasquale Rotella:


The mural was unveiled after Mama Irene’s funeral at nearby Hollywood Forever cemetery.  It was commissioned by Kaskade.

Raddon is married and has three children. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[30]
