Let’s start it all off with a selfie. Located in Silver Lake, this installation is large enough that it can be seen from the 5 freeway between an array of pieces from various different types of artists. Not your usual street art piece, this installation shows a sign of the time we are living in today and the growing trend of selfies. Just as some artists include current trends in their art to grab the public’s attention, other artists chose to use photography to incorporate into their style.


Murdock is a local artist who is known for taking portraits of family and friends and turning them into colorful stencil art. What makes Murdock’s work stand out in the streets of Los Angeles is the colorful abstract backgrounds that he uses to frame his portraits. You can follow his work on Instagram @Murdock


UK artist, Himbad recently made his first visit to LA and was greeted with blank walls. The piece above, located in West Hollywood, is a perfect example of how amazing his work is. A lot of people describe his style as scary but the artistry is undeniable. Now back in London Himbad continues to paint his creatures. Scary or not, his style is one that you should keep an eye on. If you're not familiar with his work you can follow his work on Instagram @Himbad.


Location is very important when it comes to street art. The more work you put into a piece, the more visible you want it to be. This hand painted wheat-paste combo by Bandit is a perfect example. “Unity” is one of Bandit’s latest piece which shows a heart in between many flags from all over the world in the form of angel wings on a young child. This piece encourages unity to the public in a busy intersection in downtown LA.

Local photographer Birdman recently released this video with highlights of some of the events and productions which he captured in 2015. Featured are murals that you can see while driving around in Los Angeles as well as many other projects around the world.
