Street artist paints the Berkeley riot

During a recent riot between alt-right and black bloc protestors in Berkeley, Paige St. John spotted an artist documenting the scene in an oil painting.

The artist’s name is John Paul Marcelo and you can see the final piece on his Instagram page. It even sounds like the piece can be purchased for $400.
