Growth MURAL Oakland
Client: Suffolk Construction, 2019
This mural was painted on a temporary plywood facade surrounding a large construction site on the corner of Telegraph Avenue and Grand Avenue in Oakland, California. The eight foot tall mural wraps around two sides of the building for a total length of over 272 feet. The content of the piece is universal and positive, featuring local landmarks and relevant iconography in a isometric urban landscape. Everything is depicted in white, blue, and black on a bold red background; an eye-catching graphic use of the client's brand colors. A small scale sample illustration was approved ahead of time to define style and palette, but then the actual installation was done with no planning, guides, projectors, or pencils . The entire piece was painted painted solo, by hand, with brushes and house paint over the course of 7 non-consecutive days in early August 2019.
