Happened upon this mural going up in LA, in the alley right across the street from Pink's Hot Dogs (Melrose and La Brea). The artists were busy working on it and what they had done was pretty cool. Not sure how the LA Times will feel about it, tho... Can't wait to see it finished.
Every year La Luz de Jesus Gallery puts on this great group exhibit. One of my favorite shows to see each year and a great gallery. They have been exhibiting the "real" art in Los Angeles for years now, the great curator Billy Shire started it all, more than 20 years ago. The gallery was originally on Melrose Ave. (where I became aware of it) and has since re-located to it's present location on Hollywood Blvd. Alongside Wacko this is the place to visit in LA for creative art, freaky & fun goodies and hip gifts. Not to mention there is a great Good Will is right next door!

|The sculptures by Greg Brotherton are wonderful! He had another really clever race car piece here as well.|
