Next up on the Athen B. Gallery series of walls with San Leandro is Francisco Diaz aka Pastel from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The mural entitled “Costanoans” is over three hundred feet long and around 30 ft tall it is located off the side of Highway 880 at Marina West Exit. Photographs by Brock Brake. Here’s what the artist had to say about the piece:
“Costanoan by early Spanish colonists, are a Native American people of the Northern California coast. When Spanish explorers and missionaries arrived in the late 18th century, the Ohlone (named costanoans by the spanish colony), inhabited the area along the coast from San Francisco Bay through Monterey Bay to the lower Salinas Valley”. – Pastel
This month, as part of Project 12+1’s second year running, Contorno Urbano is showing a mural by Roc Blackblock, a well known Catalan artist who specialises in stenciling; an artistic technique often used in graffiti using paint and one or more stencils cut by the artist. Defining himself as an ‘all terrain’ artist, Roc Blackblock is as comfortable painting on walls as he is on paper, canvas, in digital formats, or even on skin — he also works as an illustrator and tattoo artist.
