Right where Sunset Boulevard crosses over Glendale Avenue in Echo Park, graffiti artist Retna has transformed a billboard with a weight loss ad into a mural.

The Eastsider LA reports that the work was competed on Tuesday, and that the piece uses his signature red and blue colors, and that it comes just before he's scheduled to have a show open in a local gallery.
