Los Angeles is home to some of the best graffiti/street artists in the world, and the best place to see some of their best work in behind the alleys of Melrose Avenue. Whether you feel like graffiti/street art is legitimate art form, Melrose has been used as a canvas by street artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and the infamous street art collective, The CBS Crew. So next time your shopping at Melrose, don't miss out on some amazing art by checking out the alleys behind the Melrose Avenue shops.
