I spotted this downtown recently. Seeing the work of Neo and Mandoe MAK around my neighborhood when I was a kid motivated me BIG TIME to try my hand at writing....

These are some more examples of art in the streets I've found while rolling around Los Angeles. (Not sure I can call it "street art" since that term now refers to stuff found inside museums, galleries, private collections, etc. Following similar logic, then, maybe art found on the actual streets would have to be called "indoor art" or something like that.)
More of my previous street art curatorial work here.

I had the honor of visiting La Mano Press over the weekend. I've long been a fan of their work which combines the Mexican calavera tradition with contemporary social and political themes. It's no secret I heart printmaking, so I was super stoked when they asked Cache and I to collaborate on a print with them. SHyeah!!!

Back in 2007 I participated in an exhibit at Crewest dedicated to the L.A. River. I hung a selection of my photographs with wooden clothespins and lined the floor with river rocks. (How conceptual of me...)
