Monday Mural: foxy lady

This is pretty bizarre, wouldn't you agree?  Catching a glimpse of it,  I immediately pulled over to get a shot.   Actually she looks more like a hedgehog human hybrid but that didn't have the same ring to it.  Unfortunately, I didn't see a signature and it is not a style I recognize.  Found in West Oakland on the wall of a motorcycle club building.

Monday Mural: Warriors mural

A new mural which faces the 880 freeway alludes to the electric performance of Steph Curry and his Warrior teammates.  Fittingly, Illuminaries has painted this one on a wall of an indooor basketball court.  Not surprisingly, Under Armor, a major client in Steph's endorsement empire, helped pay for the mural.  As of this week the Warriors have again won the Western division and the first seed position in the Conference playoffs.  Third year in a row.  Now starts the long march to the championship finals.  All of us in Dub Nation are rooting for the another NBA championship.  Waarrriors!!

Monday Mural: mujer muralista

I love everything about this mural.  The composition, colors, technique--everything.  For some reason this one just makes me happy.  From this angle you can really feel the energy she's putting into grinding corn on the metate.  Close to the grilled window is a sweet hummingbird and heart shaped cactus.  Come to mention it, her braids are also linked hearts!  Found on a small restaurant on Foothill Blvd in East Oakland.

Monday Mural: family tree

This mural appears to be based on family photos.  It's a wrap-around mural that goes around the corner and shows more photos.  Notice that the mighty family tree has sweet birds in it.  Found on San Pablo Avenue in West Oakland.  In my haste to avoid impending rain, I failed to locate a signature.
