Eye Candy Clown Mural by Ezra, Berkeley

This mural was in progress the first time I drove by. Oakland artist Ezra Li Eismont was hard at work on a glorious clown. A great piece of professional street art, bold and happy-creepy. I thought it was just art-for-art's-sake, but stupid me! Ended up it is an ad for Adult Swim. Shoulda' known better... however as far as ads go, at least they hired an artist and did a really nice job. Makes a boring brick wall so much nicer, let's hope all the taggers leave it alone... Good job, Ezra!
