L.A. Street Art Tour ~ September 2015

2:04 PM PDT on October 2, 2015

Over the last couple of years Los Angeles has become one of the world's focal points for the street art and graffiti scenes. Pin In My Heart, a collaboration piece by local street artists Teachr and Peligro Pictures, says it all.DSC_0054

Pin In My Heart is located in the heart of Hollywood and showcases the stencil style of local street artist Teachr, shows you how Angeleños feel about their city, and how this city feels about the urban art scene. If you’re lucky to run into this piece before it gets buffed, make sure to get close and admire the detailed background.


Street art fans all over the world have noticed how the LA street art scene has been blooming. One of the benefits of this attention is that artists from all over the world now choose Los Angeles as one of the main cities to come showcase their work. Recently, Australian artist Anthony Lister was in town to showcase some of his recent work and paint a couple of walls, including the one above. Lister’s show, Mad Props Street Cred, is currently on display at New Image Art Gallery in West Hollywood until October 10th. Check out the latest edition to my on-going online series Around The Neighborhood featuring all of Lister’s new walls in Los Angeles.


Speaking of out of towners, The Lost Boys (Jake Merten and MDMN) are back in Los Angeles from Denver after painting their biggest mural collaboration to date-- an 80ft long, 20ft high mural for this year’s Colorado Crush Art Exhibition. The Lost Boys were back to work this week as they individually worked on their always-changing roll downs on Melrose. Make sure to stop by and check out the finished pieces before they get the itch to change them up again. Trust me when I say this, you will definitely want to keep and eye on any upcoming projects these two artists have going on.


Another Los Angeles based street artist you may want to stay up to date with is Morley. Morley specializes in bold-typography posters which he wheat pastes in a lot of urban landscapes in and outside of LA. He is one of the most active street artists in Los Angeles, so if you’re missing out on his work, you’re not looking. Morley is currently working on a solo exhibition titled, Skywriting, which will be on display at Stone Malone Gallery starting October 17th.


A graffiti artist who was active in the streets last month was Buge. Buge, representing BAMC, is probably best known for being one of the artists to help bring the billboard takeovers back to the graffiti scene. Here to stay (view here) was one of his latest billboard. Up for only a couple of hours, before being brought down, this billboard shows his grimy-colorful style known by many. While this image doesn’t do it justice, the size of this piece was impressive. It takes approximately three cars to cover its length and its location makes it almost impossible to shoot during the day.


Street art is more than just wheat pastes and paint on walls. Street art can also be interactive. Here is a perfect example by artist Alfredo Adan, who recently started the #Walkbump movement. Find out more by watching the video below.

“I turned the pedestrian act of crossing the street into fun.” -Alfredo
