Salinas Chinatown Street Art

Last weekend, I attended the Asian Festival in Salinas. My camera is broken, so I used my mobile to take some photos. While watching the Monterey Lion Dancers Team near the front of the Republic Cafe, I noticed some whimsical graffiti drawn on the plaster walls behind me, where the current residents of Chinatown often pitch their tents. For more about art in Salinas Chinatown, visit the @risK Artisan Gallery and Perla Books & Coffee, #19 Soledad Street.

Psychedelic Fish. I had to crop out some phone numbers that were spouting from the fish’s mouth.
