Street Art in Silver Lake: Obama as Frankenstein & More

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.

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.
