Monday mural: hidden from view

Artist Lisa Pisa let me know about this most recent addition to the Oakland Wall of Fame that she did with Paolo Salazar, Brian Swimme, and Dennis Osborne.  Truth be told, I didn't know about the Wall of Fame until she educated me.  Located on the walls of a storage unit company, the works cannot be seen from the street.  The amount and variety of art is stunning and some date back to the mid-80s.  Lisa says she does not usually work with spray cans and enjoyed the opportunity to work with the other artists in this medium.  I appreciated learning about this fantastic plein air exhibit and seeing the works for myself.  Over time I'll post more of the photos I took.

  2. More! Oakland is an open air museum. If I get back to the Bay Area you must give me the tour. Never seen the like in another city.

  7. Spectacular. I can't imagine painting anything so detailed with an aerosol can. I hope you will show us more of these hidden murals.
