Mural by Claudio Ethos, coordinated by LA Art Machine
5th and Main Street, Downtown Los Angeles
Photo by Edward Goldman, art critic for KCRW-FM, as part of his weekly column on art in Los Angeles. He focused these past two weeks on the plentiful array of sculpture and public art sprinkled around the area that so frequently gets overlooked as we rush about.
This was the only mural, but Goldman pointed to several other sites including the great sculpture garden, filled with Rodins, at the entrance of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, and a great piece along Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills by Yayoi Kusama.
Sidewalk stencil outside La Luz de Jesus Gallery in the Silver Lake/East Hollywood area of Los Angeles. One of many on the sidewalks outside that wonderful gallery/book store/etc. This one’s pretty cool, even if I can’t quite figure out what it’s supposed to be beyond merely geometrically interesting.
Robbie Conal posters spotted in West Los Angeles a couple of days after Nelson Mandela's death.
"I am screaming" - Artist: unknown. Photographer: me
Street art spotted somewhere in downtown Los Angeles recently, with a little (probably excessive) image tweaking by me. Anyone know the artist?

Spotted on a telephone pole in Los Angeles a little while back. Can’t remember where, dang it, but I’m betting Javster knows.
A group of doomed buildings across Washington Boulevard from the light-rail station in Culver City, California have become a fabulous canvas for great street artists, including Dabs Myla and Handiedan and others. Here are three of my shots of a bit of the work but there’s so much there. I’ll post more when I get through cleaning them up for posting.
Fun article about a cool project in LA’s Arts District downtown on the campus of SCI-ARC, the architecture school. Love the design, and the nifty addition to the area’s charms.
Some of the cooler DJ decks outfitted by artists and musicians for this past week’s ArtMix project held in downtown LA by Pioneer DJ. They’re auctioning the decks off over the next couple of weeks, with proceeds to go to a music charity, which is a fine idea indeed.
I really love the steampunk one, and the water-gun tank, though the scorpion one was quite a nifty bit of imagination. Kind of amazing work on their parts, really. Fun and imaginative product marketing project by Pioneer too, and all for a good cause. Can’t beat that.
Another pretty complicated and very funny sidewalk stencil I spotted in Los Angeles recently. The artist is having a lot of fun with that noted ursine stoner “Tokey” the Bear. Guessing this won’t be the new Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon character.
Would love to know who the artist is and where I can see other work. This one is really well done and technically really accomplished.
