Guitar Man 2018, Artist: Blek le Rat, Michigan at Marin, San Francisco, California
The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. It is typically played with both hands by strumming or plucking the strings with either a guitar pick or the finger(s)/fingernails of one hand, while simultaneously fretting (pressing the strings against the frets) with the fingers of the other hand. The sound of the vibrating strings is projected either acoustically, by means of the hollow chamber of the guitar (for an acoustic guitar), or through an electrical amplifier and a speaker.

The mural was almost hidden. It was on the side of a small commercial building, on Michigan Avenue three blocks east of the Marin T light-rail station in the Bayview neighborhood.

The mural of the guitar player was newer than the PSP, because the end of the guitar overlaid the words.

The guitar player, his head bowed and his eyes closed, listened to the music he created.

The logo for Blek le Rat was his name in association with the image of a rat. The rat sang into a microphone.
