Monday Mural: more Fruitvale mural

A fellow blogger tells me this part of the mural is by Cannon Dill.  Don't ask me to explain it.  I do know that all those winding line are intensely intricate and intriguing.  The tear really gets me and makes me feel that part of the commentary is about suffering.

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme's for you.  Just follow the Linky steps below.  You get to decide what constitutes a mural.  Once you start looking, you find them everywhere.  Be sure to link back to this blog and to visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to the mural finds posted this week.  
Sorry for the delay; my computer went on the fritz.


  1. Not sure I get it either but I can imagine how difficult it would be to paint a mural on corrugated steel. Glad you were able to get your computer off fritz.

  3. It is a rather impressive, so well painted, but a bit sad. Glad you are alright and only your computer was not well.

  4. There's lines everywhere. There's even more when you add in the vertical lines of the corrugated metal. I could feel a disruption in my vertigo.

  5. It's a very unique mural, and the tear is perfect for the image. Computer issues are not fun!

  6. Maybe he is crying for your computer? I definitely like the image, it's somehow very moving.
    And I hear you on the computer troubles! Mine died on me suddenly. :(

  7. Hello Oakland, ici Montpellier :-)) Interesting mural. It makes me think of the drowned woman in Night of The Hunter..... brrrrrrr!

  8. I did put up a mural but you weren't around so I moved on but I missed you anyway. Sorry!!
    I hope your computer behaves from now on. MB

  9. It's images like this that make me want to be able to talk to the artists.
