San Pablo Mural

Public Mural in Collaboration with IF/THEN Studios
Fall 2022

This collaboration between GRL GRP and IF/THEN Studios makes use of an otherwise unused piece of land on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, CA. In the Spring of 2022 the space will be developed into affordable housing. But in the meantime GRL GRP teamed up with IF/THEN to create something new.

IF/THEN painted the building their signature pink while GRL GRP looked to our collective archive for the mural. Specifically, to the work of Sara Chieko Bonnickson who collected and archived weeds in Berkeley as part of her MFA Design thesis work. We wheatpasted the weeds on the building as a symbol of the structure decomposing before it gets demolished.
