Black Lives Matter
9th & Washington, Oakland, CA, USA
This work is painted on plywood covering a storefront window. The wood is left unpainted as a plain background for the mural in the center. In the center of the plywood is a portrait of a Black person painted with yellow, blue, pink, brown and white, outlined in thin black lines to give the appearance of a watercolor sketch. In a white splotch of paint to the left of the portrait are the words "BLACK LIVES MATTER," executed in thin black type. Underneath this is a poster taped to the wood that also says "BLACK LIVES MATTER" in thin black type. To the lower right inside another white splotch is the artist's handle "@thetracypiper" along with the hashtag "#paintthevoid" and the website address "paintthevoid.org" which is an organization that commissions street art in Oakland California.
