Urs Fischer wax chair burning at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Geffen facility.
Fischer’s wildly fun and over-the-top work is on lavish display at both MOCA facilities, though this piece is one of a comparative handful at the Geffen facility in Little Tokyo.
There, it’s sprinkled (and melting away) among thousands of raw clay sculptures done by 1,500 Angelenos over the course of several weeks before the exhibit opened. Some of them are quite good, quite large or quite a mess, or even some combination thereof, but together represent an overwhelming accompaniment to Fischer’s own work.
I strongly urge people into art, spectacle and entertainment to hit both MOCA facilities while Fischer’s work is on display and the parts of it intended to melt/burn/wear away are still there. It’s remarkable stuff and wonderfully crazy yet often displaying virtuoso craftsmanship.
“Life is change with purpose” street art by Skott Horsi. I spotted this near the LA Convention Center as I was walking to the Expo Line station to head home. Great colors and a little philosophy. Who saw that coming?
Another of these fantastic and poetic faux street signs populating West Hollywood these days, this one in Russian. Glad there’s a translation below.

Spotted this sign or one very like it, at the time crimped by plywood from a neighboring construction site, while driving down La Brea a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t loop back to photograph it.
I just love it. I vote for more street signs like this Los Angeles (even this technically was probably in West Hollywood)
Pasteup on a utility box, spotted on La Brea Ave. in Los Angeles last night, near the Merry Karnowsky gallery where long-time former Greg “Craola” Simkins had a crazy busy opening night “private” artist reception.
Love this work though. The child’s expression is just priceless and so sweet.
Swoon in Los Angeles, USA
Some of the wall work by street artist Cryptik inside Feed Body & Soul, a restaurant about to open the heart of the very hip Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the Venice neighborhood of L.A.
His work covers most of the available wall space inside the restaurant with similarly, um, cryptic script. It’s quite striking. Nice work. The restaurant officially opens later this week.
Anyone else have shots of other Cryptik work? The restaurant is selling a book that collects some of his work, including a Gandhi pasteup that I posted here many months ago that’s in the Arts District downtown (and is also one of the background images on my Mac). Would love to see anything any of you have out there.
Late night munchies~
Detail from a very large wall-size project in Downtown L.A.’s Arts District. Shot it a while back and don’t remember the address. Anyone know the artist?
Becca! in LA! Love her stuff. Need to post a couple of things of hers I spotted at a recent group show too…
