EDDIE MURPHY wall mural by A.D. Cook for Hollywood Video

Eddie Murphy

1992, 72″ x 108″, acrylic on canvas

A Gentleman of Leisure

When you need a laugh, you can always count on Eddie. Maybe that’s why I decided to paint his serious side as he classed up the Hollywood Video store in Hollywood, Oregon (in Portland). This 6 ft. tall x 9 ft. wide mural made a powerful presence as Eddie watched over the store from the check-out counter.

I keep telling people I’ll make movies until I’m fifty and then I’ll go and do something else. I’m going to be a professional gentleman of leisure.
