Ever since I picked up a copy of Subway Art, I’ve always been amazed at the semi-anonymous street art of graffiti artists. On the way back from IKEA in Emeryville I drive thru West Oakland to avoid the 880 freeway and today took a side street on a hunch that there might be some local art pieces to see.  The photo above is just one of several amazing pieces you can find around Willow and 24th street right off the Mandela Parkway.
