This tour is a survey in the ever changing face of Los Angeles street art culture, from sanctioned murals, to surrealistic stencils and posters, gang graffiti and incoherent scribbling, we are going to see the spectrum of art unfold in before us; the beautiful, the terrible, and just plain strange.
Car or bike tour available
ALL OF THIS CAN BE DONE VIA BIKE. Zero carbon emissions (not counting manufacturing and shipping), and fresh air (kinda fresh, depending on what time of year you come here), exercise (this is going to be a good bike ride), and most importantly an emersion into LA culture with a most qualified and experienced artist and bicycler.
On this tour we will explore not only this precious, and fleeting art, which only exists for a few moments, but also the way the city was shaped through various sociopolitical forces, the bicycles will allow us to stop and take in the more subtle details of the picture.
Meet wherever is most convenient for the traveller, depending on what area that is in the tour starts immediately because street art is everywhere, it then heads into hollywood and to the melrose fairfax and la brea areas, and finally can either conclude with the downtown street art scene or the Silverlake or both,
I am a Los Angeles based painter of drawings, maker of music, writer of words. I recently graduated from Cal St. Northridge with a degree in English, I am therefore now certified to speak it. So between deciding if I want to run away forever, paint the city a thousand colors, fall in love, or go to grad school I thought maybe I could share this amazing city that I love with some theoretically amazing people. Do not mistake what I am write for ignorance; Los Angeles can be a very terrible, hatable place. Coming to this city based on the perception of it would leave anyone feeling let down. My goal is to create a total picture of this incredibly complex city; for the spectrum is relative, how could one know beauty if they had never experienced something they did not consider to be so.
