Street Art in Silver Lake: Obama as Frankenstein & More

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

We've shown you two secret street art spots (here and here) around the Los Angeles area in the past couple weeks, but today we present you with a place you can actually go and see yourself. It's one of those in-your-face spots that you can easily miss, but Sunset Junction can be a treasure trove. Two parcels south of El Pollo Loco on Sunset at Sanborn is an empty lot.

Yes, homeless live there and the lot is littered with trash, but a large opening in the fence allows you to take a quick peek at a nice spot for street art, or at least what used to be a good spot until a large amount of tagging took over. Above a some of the few remaining pieces by Cache and Shark Toof.
