On the second episode of our new series Trash to Treasure, we link up with Brooklyn-born-and-raised artist Anthony Vasquez, aka AVone, for some more trash-to-treasure goodness.

Saturday, June 13th, marks the first day that art collective Few & Far will start work on a large scale mural in the heart of Oakland at 2430 Mandela Parkway. The building, which buys non-recyclable plastics and then resells them to specialized buyers, is one of the largest recycling facilities in the San Francisco area.
Situated directly across the street from locally owned soul food eatery Brown Sugar, this mural will focus on representing Oakland’s diverse culture and its long-time residents of the city.

A match-up few predicted at the inception of the season — but now love to claim that they did — properly places the two best teams, head-to-head, in one of the most unpredictable Finals in recent years. That unpredictability is largely based in the fact that the Warriors and Cavs do two completely different things, with two completely different superstars, and with two completely “green” head coaches. But nonetheless, we think we’ve figured out what to watch for in the Finals. And believe it or not, we might be right.
