Michael Pasquarello hired Julia Blaukopf to create a custom, photo-based wall covering for the accent wall in his restaurant Cafe Lift. The goal was to highlight the surrounding area with special emphasis on The Rail Park

Julia photographed various scenes surrounding Cafe Lift from the elevated railway. Julia and Michael then met to review and select their favorite shots. Michael’s two other restaurants,

Prohibition Taproom and Bufad pizza, are also located on 13th Street, which was the reason the final image depicts this street. Similar to other art works by Julia, she applied layers of layers of photographs to achieve the final collage.
