The prints that were made for the show, “Hella Oakland” are original prints by artist, Dara Lorenzo. The art is made through a photo-etching and a photo-polymer printmaking process. All are unique, one of a kind artist presentations. The work embodies the artist’s personal narrative about living in the city of Oakland, CA. The work contains images of the places that she passes by time after time, and some of the words that are heard or said when in those places. There is a strong presence of lyrics from specific songs in the work, also the artist’s own thought stream.
