Wandering the streets of the Lower Bottoms (LoBo) district of West Oakland every afternoon with my hairy pal Nico I get to see some great street art; both intentional and accidental. Here’s a taste!
All but the last 4 images are of work created by local poet, artist, activist and character, Marcel Diallo. Check out his Black New World site for more on LoBo.
Rumored to be the oldest African american house in LoBo. Recently shifted to this site.

A place we all need to visit from time to time.
And now some less intentional local art – not authored by Mr. Diallo.
The corner scrap-yard.

You are now leaving LoBo - in style!
