A guinea pig skateboarding mural revealed

Skateboarding 510

The brouhaha about a Berkeley store’s mural — reported in the Chronicle yesterday, possibly discussed at a city council meeting last night, and referenced on this site — has prompted at least one reader of Berkeleyside to ask to see a picture of this “artwork in the news”.

You ask and we deliver.

The mural was commissioned a few years ago by Telegraph Avenue’s 510 Skateboarding. The photo above was shot by (and is reproduced with permission from) Toronto based photographer Rannie Turingan.

But every answer begs a new question. Now we want to know who the artist is. Anyone?
