These above works of art are on display at the Oakland Museum in the California History exhibit. These particular pieces stood out to me, as I have a strong interest in political/protest art.

"Still Point"
Artist: Hung Liu
Oil on canvas

According to Liu, "The oil washes and drips that seep through my paintings contribute to a sense of loss while dissolving the historical authenticity of the photographs I paint from".

  2. Beautiful banner at your site as well, I am reminded of some wall paintings by the Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, such as this one http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWNY4. You browse more murals of his at wahooart.com.
