DALeast recently painted a walll for FFTT, a public mural project in Portland, Oregon. Located on SE 6th Avenue and SE Yamhill Street, the mural titled Persistent Parabola, was inspired by an old Chinese proverb: Water can carry a boat, it can also turn it upside down.
In the artist’s words: "I imagine my life journey is like the cargo ship carrying all the crates on the ocean, as well as the plans, wishes, relationships and the things that I’ve attached importance to. By thinking of the capacity and impermanence facing the ocean, I feel I am the most insignificant one in the entire world. This brings me more appreciation towards what I have now."
