There’s a new look to a familiar Marine Drive restaurant.

Uli’s owners Tyson and Carlie Blume recently commissioned a new mural to replace the popular waterfront restaurant’s pirate-themed vista, created some two decades ago by artist Elizabeth Hollick.

The new mural, by Vancouver-based graffiti artist ‘Craver,’  on the side of the restaurant, presents a coastal landscape of rugged old-growth trees.

The couple’s three-year-old daughter, Mischa, helped the artist with finishing touches on his work last week.

“Tyson chose to change the mural as a sort of ode to his love of the West Coast,” Carlie told the Peace Arch News.

“It’s a nod to his upbringing in Campbell River, where he often foraged for Chantrell mushrooms and fiddleheads.”
