Street Art in the Hills

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Driving "over the hill" from the Valley to Hollywood is routine for many, though, the serpentine turns and the tree canopy above make the canyon routes a nice break from the usual traffic blight of the freeways. Along one of those routes is an unusual spot for street art, but for more than a year, one street artist has unofficially claimed the spot as his, adding even more for commuters to gawk at.

This spot, north of Lookout Mountain Avenue and best viewed from southbound lanes, has been home to K74's noir-esque art work. When we first took note of the spot, it was Charlie Chaplin. Later, it was Moses. Now there is a ballerina. What's next? That's yet to be seen as K74 waits until his art is whited out before putting up a new piece.
