I was blown away by this piece at Lexington and 18th in San Francisco’s Mission.
Andrew Schoultz and Aaron Noble created Generator in 2002-2003. It depicts an incredibly detailed, interconnected scene of buildings and birds and machines.
It seems more like a drawing than a mural, actually. I love the Dr. Seuss-ian style with its curving, elaborate, lopsided buildings and the motion and humor of the birds and machines.
It also includes little signs with references to the neighborhood.
I read an article interpreting Generator as a statement about gentrification in the Mission. That may be true. Or not. I like not knowing.
