Honest Al's wrecking yard in West Oakland has become a go-to wall for graffiti artists. This is not my favorite kind of street art, but I admit I don't know how to look at it. I Googled CBS, which seems to be a loose confederation of artists in Northern and Southern California. Defie and Quakes are part of this crew. Beyond that I'm at a loss. You can tell that a lot of feeling and passion have gone into this work, but I'm afraid I don't know what it references. Interestingly, someone has drawn a line beyond which the artists should not go, and this is being honored.
