Stephen Curry's Larger-Than-Life Game Now Towers Over an Oakland Freeway in New Mural

The Illuminaries paint the mural Steph Curry’s game deserves.

By //

Forget — or at least try to forget — the deadeye, dazzling footwork, eagle-eye vision, sleight-of-hand, grit, dedication, et cetera, et cetera, and Stephen Curry isn’t as imposing of a figure as his game makes him seem. But even at 6’3” and 185 pounds, his unprecedented game makes him larger-than-life. He has taken over the league, the world of sports, sportswear, and culture.

Everyone’s talking about the back-to-back MVP, but no one has proclaimed their admiration for Curry like Bay Area street art collective, the Illuminaries.

Following last year’s mural, the Illuminaries are back at it with a piece that suits Curry’s larger-than-life stature. Painted on the back of an indoor basketball gym, JamTown, and overlooking interstate 880 in Oakland, the monstrous art piece shows Steph mid-crossover with his Under Armour Curry 2.5s on and the subtle pop of electricity shooting out from the ball.

In the video we hear the artists talk about their inspiration for the mural, location scouting and what Stephen Curry means to the Bay Area. Watch above, and check out how fellow artist MEGGS imaginatively reinterpreted Curry’s game with his paintbrush.
