Portrait of Derrick Hayes
Artist: Troy Lovegates (Website | Instagram)
Location: Oakland, CA
I love music.
I love muras.
I will jump in my car and chase either of these magical art forms. A friend told me she saw this new mural during the Women’s March in Oakland last weekend. I had to go out the next day and see it for myself.
Troy Lovegates explains the mural:
“Been spending the holidays in downtown Oakland way up on a lift …. painting a mural of Derrick Hayes an Oakland local who sells newspapers around Piedmont Ave in the morning and roams around the city on his bicycle visiting friends in the afternoon …. thanks to @athenbgallery for facilitating this project …
