Gentrification in Oakland

Title

Gentrification in Oakland

Description

In my art, I decided to illustrate and use the symbol of yin and yang to demonstrate how gentrification is affecting Oakland. I wanted to create a visual representation of the "good" and the "bad" side side of gentrification and who is getting affected and benefiting from this. I wanted to illustrate this through a series of drawing and illustrations without many words being involved. I decided to illustrate this be creating like each side in the case of how people of color are being affected on the left side and how white people are benefiting on the right side.
