Birds Mural 2019, Artist: Cameron Thompson (@StayAware), 2469 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, California

With birds and animals as his primary subject matter, Thompson brings an abstract style to his figurative paintings. At times, the birds are refracted like the light coming through a glass prism, evoking the fractured imagery of Cubism. Thompson rounds out these forms with smooth, calligraphic line work.[from oakland art museum website]
