Graffiti Rules! (Part 2)

I made another trip under the bridges crossing the LA River and was pleasantly surprised to find a maze of catacombs covered in graffiti. This spot is both a proving grounds for artists honing their craft as well a a private place with lots of huge surfaces for crews to do larger pieces with a lesser risk of arrest. It is a landscape dominated by massive interior spaces, crushed top to bottom with every imaginable writing implement. The fine silt under the bridge rises in thin wisps with every step, and the ground is heavily littered with aerosol cans and latex gloves. This is one of the most disturbing and beautiful places I have encountered in the city.
