My Favorite Taco ~ Steve Grody

10:55 AM PDT on April 16, 2008


Bookstore shelves practically sag under the weight of every tome published on the art of graffiti. Nothing tells the story as beautifully or fully as the epic Graffiti L.A., released last year by author and photographer Steve Grody, who has been shooting walls in Nuestra Señora since 1990. The full color pictures are stunning, while Grody details the basics of the art form for the curious, simultaneously exalting it as the important evolution in painting that it is. He also gives voice to some of the city's best to speak for themselves on long-ranging debates about style, technique, mediums, and what makes an artist a graf artist. Plus, it finally gives L.A. writers the props for pioneering, innovation, and progression that is deserved.

Bravo Mr. Grody, we can't wait to see what's next. And we gotta know, what's your favorite taco?

Steve Grody: "Thanks for the support! Though it's hardly an obscure spot, Senor Fish at 1st and Alameda is a regular save-my-ass when I"m hungry place. I most often get the seafood burrito, but also the seafood quesadilla or omelet."
