Wow! Check out this mind-blowing street mural, which caught my eye just across Dewey Street from Chicano Park. Titled Ancestors, it was spray-painted on a Barrio Logan building in 2013 by artist Maxx Moses. A little online research reveals that Ancestors replaced another damaged mural on the same wall, which was titled Synergy. Maxx Moses likes to use spontaneity in his creative productions, and calls his unique art movement Concrete Alchemy. I just call it awesome!

This dazzling urban art is directly across the street from world-famous Chicano Park.

  1. Wow, indeed. I really like your blog & am about to click on the “Follow.” Thanks for following mine, which led me to yours. I feel we have lots in common — walking, curiosity, being downtowners, interest in a range of art, and suitable modesty about our photos…
