Monday Mural: smash patriarchy

Another wonderful mural by Peskador in West Oakland.  He just refuses to be constrained by a single style.  Be sure to check out the geometric details in the afro and the facial tattoos.  They add wonderful depth to the image.  Am not sure how this guy with a blunt smashes patriarchy.  Maybe you have to be high to get the connection.

Monday Mural: the corner tropics

Found this tropical mural by Malcom Stuart in Jingletown.  It curves around the corner of the building and features psychedelic 3-D geckos.  Hey, that reminds me we're coming up on the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.  Feelin' groovy.

Go Warriors!!

Monday Mural: Ghost Ship

In December there was a terrible fire in an Oakland warehouse where 36 people lost their lives.  Near the warehouse site, this mural has gone up to commemorate the fire and honor those who died.  The doves represent the souls lost and all their names are listed at the far right side of the mural.  Painted by Vogue and the TDK crew.
