Monday Mural | Found in Astoria

Astoria murals

Today we go further north — from Portland to Astoria in Oregon. I found these murals in the seaside town of Astoria in (northwestern) Oregon. Astoria, which lies at the intersection of the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia river has many stories to tell: of Native Americans, shipwrecks and trade. Now lets have a close look at these Astoria murals:

I didn’t manage to find info on this one. Do you know who is the artist behind this lovely wall art?
