Painted Bridges - The Carquinez Bridge

We'll look at just a couple of graffiti paintings on bridges. This one is on the pile cap of the 1950s era Carquinez Truss Bridge. I wonder if the gray paint behind the graffiti was applied by the artist or by Caltrans to remove an earlier painting?

This is a common style of graffiti in which the artist's name is embellished in text so intricate that I cannot read it (If you know what it says, please let me know). What I like is how the image starts out rather benign, but grows progressively more savage and bloody before returning to civility.
