Check out the very cool street art style of Portuguese artist Vhils (aka Alexandre Farto). This is the first I’ve seen of this style of plaster removal to create the image. The portrait on the left above was part of an LA collaboration with JR called Scratching the Surface.
Mr. Brainwash is a street artist in the vein of Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Last summer he had a great exhibition (more) at the old CBS studios in H.wood. It took some pics while there and after more than a year of the photos sitting in a folder on my hdd, I have finally gotten around to doin em up and posting them to my flickr.
I can’t say I am the biggest P-Rod fan in the world – but I do love this commercial. This is the extended version which is even better than the 1 minute they were playing during the XGames. Bring on more LA love.
