Created by artist Olivia Bain, this gay octopus was formed in July 2018. The giant orange octopus has beaming lime green eyes, powder-blue lines tentacles dotted with multi-colored hearts, and waves a rainbow Pride flag.

The giant public painting sprawls across the back garage entrance at 409 Broadway, around the corner from the Bird Up mural.
