Street Art: The Unwhitewashed Version

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

To balance out the maybe-legit/maybe-PR-stunt whitewashing of Blu's commissioned mural for MOCA, we're celebrating some other street art in Los Angeles and paying special attention to the detail involved in such large pieces. When you consider the time invested in each element of a large piece, the thought of painting over it all takes on new meaning.
