Street Art

Guerrilla street art is as common in LA as a long stretched limousine. It is mostly meant to shake things up a little, call attention to social issues, to be an eyeopener to force you to take a second look and question the existing environment. But it is also used by artists to draw attention to their work. However you want to look at it, it is art, and it sure makes us shut off our autopilot, step out of our daily routine and notice what's around us. In the up-coming week, we will feature some of the street art around LA. Stencil art is now on almost every block, and the paper-mache's and defaced Billboard's are becoming more and more common, even though they are harder to catch an image of; the city art grabbers with SUV's and ladders are very quick at removing them.
