Recent art piece: east van skate logo
Despite what you think of the giant public art piece at the corner of Clarke and 2nd showcasing a giant cross and the words “east van” in it… The original “icon” was actually a knock off of the “dog town” logo from the California skate scene. This piece being more representative of this original. From what I have read I believe this icon became most notorious when it was spray painted on the ghetto skatepark located at Broadway and Clarke – known as China Creek.
Given I live just blocks from these roots and am an avid skateboarder I thought this the perfect addition to our home.
