There’s More to Green than Money

Jet Martinez.

20th St @ Broadway St in Oakland, Ca

Jet Martinez mural recently completed in downtown Oakland on the iconic I. Magnin Building that was recently renovated and converted into office space. I. Magnin was a venerable San Francisco based woman’s apparel store that defined fashion from outside to inside their stores. The marble facade flagship store on Union Square in San Francisco was a white marble palace with this store in Oakland being an emerald palace across from the emerald city.

Jet Martinez mural on the back side complements the green tiled art deco facade where he incorporated the green palette into the roses set off by the white Cala Lilies.

This mural was arranged through Athen B Gallery and made possible through the building owners HP Investors and Lake Merritt/Uptown Association BID.
