Monday Mural: rabbit carp

Along the edge of Chinatown near the 880 freeway stands a running frieze of colorful murals.  This one caught my fancy because it blends two animals.  Wouldn't you love to see this in the wild?  It's also pretty cool that the artists did not cover over the old Ballantine's ad.  The sticks define a traffic lane for vehicles zooming onto a freeway on-ramp.   I had to look out for traffic from all directions to get a shot without cars.  Makes you wonder how the heck the Dragon School artists painted this wall since stepping back to look at your work would definitely be hazardous.

  1. Strange fish or strange rabbit, lol. But it's well painted and it's a 2 in 1 with the whiskey mural above.

  2. Great mural, but as a Scot my attention was taken with the whisky ad!

  3. WHiskey and fish are two things I don't typically think of together! :-)

  5. Supongo que será por el tipo de bebida.
    ¿Dice, algo así, que si tomas Ballantine´s te sentirás como pez en el agua?
    ¿O qué alucinarás tanto, del borrachera que te sentirás un híbrido entre pez y conejo?
    Es formidable el mural y la mezcla de los dos animales
    El artista no sólo respetó el anterior mural del whisky; si no que, me parece, que lo emplea como anuncio a la contrariedad, en muchos sentidos.

  9. I was wondering about the animal relationship to Ballantine's! So glad they left it too.

  14. I like it a lot ODP and I often wonder how artist work in busy, tricky situations like this. Sorry I missed this week, when I first tried there wasn't a link and then I got a wee bit side-tracked :)
