After three months in SF I headed down to LA to hang out with photographer Birdman and paint a couple of walls in Culver City and Downtown Arts District, thanks to Branded Arts and Daniel Lahoda LA Freewalls respectively.
First wall was a giant ‘American Phoenix’ dedication to Warren Brand at the Branded Arts Complex in Culver City. Insidentally if your in LA, Branded Arts is throwing a block party Sat Nov 10th. Also painting close by was Miss Van & Dan Quintana, was awesome seeing them work on such a dope piece and hanging out for a bit in LA.
Second was the ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’ wall in Downtown LA, using a classic heart image as homage to the history and hard work of LA Muralists and graffiti culture. Stoked to score a spot next to good friends Dabs & Myla.
