Monday Mural #6:

23 Apr

Since the beginning of joining this meme until now and for the foreseeable weeks of Monday Mural, I’d be sharing with you photos that I took before I even knew of the existence of this meme.

Live Without Borders
This one for instance was shot 2/13/10 while running errands. We were driving along San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley when at a stop light I spotted the side wall of Mi Tierra Foods decorated with this mural. I took a shot because, well, it looked pretty from where I was sitting. I only glanced at it while on a stop light.

While preparing to share this I googled if there is some information available on this mural. Turns out there is. This mural is called LIVING WITHOUT BORDERS (Vivir Sin Fronteras). 18′ x 58′ acrylic mural on stucco.

Read more about the mural here.

    There is so much to see in this mural – it would take a lot of studying to see it all! Great colors!

    Whoa, this one jumps out and insists you gaze at it. The riot of color and images is so compelling. I read the description in the link which describes the complexity of the piece. Such a great catch. I”ll have to make a trip to admire it in person. Thanks so much, Ewok, for sharing this with us and participating in this week’s meme.

    You have to admire anyone that can create something this real, beautiful and so complicated. Nice to have the history as well.

    I take my students to see this mural each year. I remember when Monica Avalos, Alejandra Avalos and Vanessa Verdin were my students like yesterday. Now I don’t have to miss you. I see you each time I visit my favorite mercado. This is one of my favorite murals of all times, along with those by Juana Alicia Araiza’s in the Bay Area and David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera’s murals in Bellas Artes in Mexico DF. I’m honored to know and love these contemporary artists and my parents knew Diego and Frida and many artists from the Taller de Grafica Popular en el DF, so I know good art when I see it! Son familia!
