A starry-eyed Twiggy was created by Mize, who said he wanted to create a piece that was different from the bolder murals already in the area. The mural's vibe and colors were inspired by a piece Mize had done in 2013 of the model. He's been doing paints of Twiggy since 2003. When asked about his inspiration, Mize said, " Love her look: Androgynous. The eyes, '60s vibe ... the color palette is a feminine and soft color palette."
