As of Sunday, the newest addition--albeit temporary--to Los Angeles' street art collection is Italian street artist Ericailcane's rendition of a giant squirrel eating trucks on the side of Von Dutch on La Brea. Seth Carmichael of Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art (one of the best places to see art, in our opinion) said he noticed the store's big white wall and approached them to see if art could bless it. And blessing, indeed, happened. The show, entitled "Man is the Bastard," runs through January 28 at the gallery space down the street.
