Of course the Oakland A’s Stomper statues attracted my attention, being art in the public environment, and a treasure hunt to find. Here’s one that’s outside of the Pacific Renaissance Plaza in Chinatown. It’s called Stomper is All of Us, by Erin Colcord.
So shiny and reflective! Can you see the Stomper that’s me?
Today we have some nice graffiti tags from around Chinatown.
This is my final guest city post from Seattle. I had a lovely time there and I really enjoyed the beautiful street art!
This is an electrical box and mural from the International District. This neighborhood has been the home for many waves of immigrants from different parts of Asia and has areas known as Japantown, Chinatown, and Little Saigon.
Cute little wheat pastes by Laney College. Don’t know the artists.
Here is the delegate Chang’e, goddess of the moon. And some equally delicate moon cakes. Both painted by Lina Savage, aka @sv.vge painting with Dragonschool.
Aminalei painted this lovely cloth and flower fade around the corner in Chinatown Oakland. It’s so delicate, isn’t it? Of course a part of Dragonschool projects.
Gotta sneak this one in before the year of the rooster ends. This piece celebrates the Chinese year of the rooster which is just about to come to an end.
Who’s the fairest dragon of all? With so many to choose from, it really is hard to decide! Gorgeous dragon school dragons, now in full color.
Really cool, bright rainbow murals from downtown Oakland. I love this first one cause it picks out some great Oakland landmarks. The oak tree, the bay brige, the iron horses at the port, the California Hotel, Fox Theater, Chinatown, public library, Tribune Tower, and the BART.
Then an elegant lady singing, and a saxophone praising family.
