Los Angeles Street Art Scene

Los Angeles street art scene has taken a turn after a 10-year ban on public murals was lifted at the end of 2013, and there are unlimited walls and unmeasurable creative energy surrounding Downtown LA.
The new freedom has drawn some fresh local artists and prominent international artists to try their skills on LA walls.
Below is a few of our findings whilst travelling through Downtown LA in October 2015....

The above art can be found on Winston St. and Main St. outside the popular We Are Thanne thrift shop, if you're here around lunch time I totally recommend the Vietnemese restaurant next door, its called Blossom and makes some great dishes, the interior is pretty special too!

I've come across the drip mask faces before but this one was super special - A collaboration with Fin Dac & Angelina Christina, my new found favourite.

Whilst walking past a gated alley on Winston St, we were personally invited down the Indian Alley to view some amazing murals, Shepard Fairy above and the native american's below that were created by Steven Paul Judd.

There's a lot to see anywhere from 4th - 9th St. and across and around Main St. and Spring St. You have to wonder round to find all the hidden gems... the one below by Teachr1 was sprayed on a electrical box just on the high street.

The below piece is a huge Mural seen from a car park on 133E. 3rd St. by LA graffiti artist David Flores.

You can't really miss this one... its absolutely huge, the beautiful mural is on the corner of 6th and Spring St. and the magical master piece was created by Robert Vargas.

If you get the opportunity to visit LA, you should take a day to wonder around Downtown LA, there's lots of amazing industrial buildings with lots of up and coming restaurants and bars, some quite dark and edgy but I love that....
