Oakland: a magic place for graffiti and murals

Oakland is a city with so many murals and graffiti that you don’t need to program any tour. Just walk around, keep your eyes open and you will see murals and graffiti everywhere. This is a very small sample I was able to capture today walking in the area of Telegraph and 59th.

Those are the artists I was able to identify and that I would like to tank: Pancho Pescador, American-Chilean artist Cristian Muñoz, Sidemuestro (Stan Bellini) and Vogue TDK (Norman Vogue). If you notice that attribution is incomplete or wrong please let me know by leaving a comment.

Update
I have written more blog posts about murals and graffiti in Oakland and Berkeley. One about the murals in Oakland’s Chinatown, one about exploring Oakland’s murals by Vespa, and one about exploring murals in Berkeley by bike.
