DALeast Mural ~ Portland

While down in the inner Eastside industrial area of Portland the other day, I came upon a mural. It was a large piece of work on a somewhat obscure wall. I snapped a few shots and noticed the artist’s signature. Well apparently, after a little followup, the artist DALeast is world renowned and has quite the history of cool murals.

Here’s a link to Jonathan Levine Gallery in which he captured DALeast doing the mural.

“Portland-based project Forest For The Trees took to the streets just last month, unleashing 20 burgeoning graphic artists on the streets of the City of Roses to promote visual collaboration and creativity. As a part of this city-wide exhibition, internationally renowned muralist DALeast created a large-scale piece in his penchant long-brushstroke style. Dubbed “Persistent Parabola,” the piece is intended to represent the artist’s internal struggles with impermanence when related to the vastness of the ocean, or industry, even; based on the Chinese proverb: “Water can carry a boat, it can also turn it upside down.” Hypebeast
