street art is by far one of my favorite parts of life in LA. we’re really lucky to live in a place where in so many areas of town you get the chance to see some really beautiful work without having to pay entry into a museum. my hood (the los feliz-silver lake-echo park area) is a major repository of this art, and whenever i get a chance i take pics of it.  i’ve finally started to put some of those pics on flickr here, but i still have a lot more to upload.

trashy art

December 6, 2008

earlier today i saw this post by dakota at curbed LA about a couple of local artists who go around turning junk people throw to the curb into art.  it made me think of an online video about joshua allen harris i saw done by new york magazine awhile back.  i’m so happy these artists are out there doin’ what they’re doin’, and hope to stumble upon some of their work someday. 

below is the video from new york magazine’s story.
