Constructivist graffiti















The latest on the Oakland art scene: graffiti clearly influenced by Joseph Albers. Characterized by a disciplined approach to composition and subtle study of color, this work seems to question our assumptions about our relationship to surfaces.

Said Albers: Art problems are problems of human relationships. Note that proportion, harmony and coordination are tasks of our daily life, as are also activity, intensity, economy, and unity. And learn that behavior results in form, and reciprocally, form influences behavior.

Paintings can be seen along Mandela Parkway.
