I guess, in case you’re not quite sure where you are, they’ve spray painted this on the sidewalk in my North Hollywood ‘hood. Or maybe just so they won’t randomly dig into the underground water and sewer mains. That too. But helpful.
Greg “Craola” Simkins and other artists will be live painting around this weekend’s Tarfest music and art celebration in mid-city Los Angeles. Last year, they had some great mural-size pieces along La Brea Ave. that stayed up for some extensive period thereafter. Here’s the info posted by Merry Karnowsky Gallery, which reps Simkins:

It’s not quite street art but it’s close. Justice Urban Tavern in downtown LA has a new art installation from local kinda-looks-like-a-street-artist K Fish next Thursday evening. K Fish will even be doing some live art creation. Here’s what the news release about Thursday night’s event says about the work of K Fish (no guarantees you’ll understand what they wrote, bless them):
Bridging the gap between studio and street art and creating a new species through hybridization. K Fish sets figures afloat in a sea of color and contrast, juxtaposing the steady warmth of an icon with the vibrations of a multicolored backdrop. He is a consummate master of creating quiet chaos in the mind of the viewer, yet gifts them with the calm of intelligent aesthetics.
More sidewalk art spotted outside La Luz de Jesus Gallery in East Hollywood. This one appears to have a bit of the Titanic going down, so to speak.
Surprisingly lifelike yet ever so simple graffiti that I spotted a couple of days ago on the sidewalk in East Hollywood outside La Luz De Jesus Gallery/Wacko bookstore. It really tricks the (ok, MY) eye into having a third dimension. Crazy.
