Monday Mural: paste-ups in East Oakland

These dramatic murals are on two sides of the building at the corner of E. 12th Street and 11th Avenue in East Oakland.  They are paste ups but have been put up with some kind of super glue to help them last longer than usual.  They look like blown up photo murals, but I really couldn't tell.  And I didn't see any signatures.  I'm sure someone will tell us who did them.  It's a pleasure to drive up the street and see them with their purple-ish red background.

  4. Larger than life- b&w and red is a striking combination.

  8. Wow! I wonder how they were able to blow up the photos that big and keep the resolution so sharp.
