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.

Light sculpture for sale at a recent art event I attended at a very upscale house in the Hollywood Hills for what I think was called L’Art Gallery. The location was amazing, and a lot of the art pretty engaging. Surprisingly broad set of price ranges and types of offerings for what they had on offer too.
This piece, whose creator I don’t know, was mounted over a bed. I’ve tweaked the image slightly, and the light from the bulbs in the letters blow out the ability of my camera phone to pick out detail, but it still ended up being a cool shot of an interesting piece, I think.
