Oakland-based muralist Desi Mundo is on a crusade to change the negative perception of artists who paint using spray cans.
He says there’s a difference between street art and graffiti, and that what he does engages the community in conversation in a way that graffiti doesn’t. He says his self-described “pavement to policy” organization is bringing artists and neighborhoods together to make artwork that everyone can enjoy. Mundo spoke with KALW's Jen Chein.
