This is the archive for December 2010

Eriberto Oriol and Angelica Gonzalez Oriol are awesome people and fervent supporters of graffiti. Their Forbidden Art LA website showcases their photographic documentation of Los Angeles graffiti culture. This week they posted up nice flicks of wall painted earlier this year by Cache, Kofie, and Eyeone (that's me!) dealing with immigration and racism.

You can check out the full feature here.

Today on Flashback Mondays we time-travel a whopping four days back to December 9, 2010. The links below have good coverage of the Dreams Deferred art exhibit opening. Give 'em a visit and you can say you were there...

I had no idea this wall was that popular of a skate spot (as previously seen here.) The December 2010 issue of Thrasher confirms it. (F@ckers should spring for some touch up paint, just sayin'!)

Thanks for the lead Jimmy!
