Here's the story behind all those colorful murals on the east side of Milwaukie near McLoughlin

RITA A. LEONARD - Here are some of the colorful new murals along the Watershed Building - facing S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, just south of the McLoughlin Boulevard overcrossing. Several bright public paintings by Dominic Sigari have appeared on the west side of the Watershed Building at 5040 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, at its McLoughlin Boulevard overcrossing. The new geometric groupings add color and interest to what was formerly a dull-brown expanse of office walls and loading bays.

Sigari, a prolific self-taught artist, enjoys painting on Portland's sunny days. "I've loved to paint ever since I was young," he told THE BEE. "I paint several days a week – and also tend bar. I usually sketch out a basic idea, but it often changes during the painting process. I frequently paint with two others, under the umbrella [name] of 'Team Good Times'. "We're just three friends who really enjoy painting together. Most of our public murals are self-funded."

Sigari paints under the name "dominatah" when working alone. When collaborating with others, the signatures vary. You can see more of his work online, at –
