Ruets Asylm Go Lakers

Too bad the Lakers lost this season. However, this awesome piece still stands strong. I found this gem on the Los Angeles 110 Freeway going south. It is fairly close to Chinatown. This was done by Ruets and Asylm.

Man, said to be tagging overpass, injured on 5 Freeway in East Los Angeles

Witnesses say he fell onto the interstate near the Main Street off-ramp with a can of spray paint in his hands.

A man apparently spray painting graffiti on an overpass fell Saturday night onto the 5 Freeway in East Los Angeles, authorities said.Several motorists told authorities that the man had possibly broken his back at about 9:45 p.m. and had a can of spray paint clutched in his hands as he lay on the freeway near the Main Street off-ramp, said California Highway Patrol spokesman David Porter.

Porter said the man was taken to a nearby hospital where he was being treated.The accident comes about three weeks after prolific tagger Cyrus Yazdani -- who goes by the moniker "Buket" -- was arrested for causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage.Yazdani is perhaps most recognized for a YouTube video that shows him climbing and spray painting behind the Hollywood Freeway sign near Melrose Avenue as traffic speeds below.

Mr. Brainwash Life is Beautiful Part 1

We finally made it to the MBW solo exhibit, Life is Beautiful. We tried on opening night, but the line was just too long. Be sure to check out some pictures below.

Thanks to Yokee77 for the review.

The Life is Beautiful exhibit was a genuinely fun experience. Some pieces were playful and some were so original, you could not stop admiring them. I do not think I smiled and chuckled as much as I did at any other exhibit.

For instance, Mr. Brainwash had a whole room full of faded old-fashioned family portraits that included one or two members in superhero garb. How absurd and hilarious! What about the humungous Hotwheels motorcycle in its original packaging?

I loved the large painting of Billy Holiday bursting with bright colors and bold brush strokes. I stared at it for a long long long time because it was so mesmerizing.

I couldn't believe how perfectly fitted broken pieces of records created portraits of rock stars. That was incredible.

On the way up to the second floor there were pieces by Revok, Saber and Retna. Mind-blowing!

From the second floor you can see a cop car covered in graffiti with the siren lights flashing (without the noise) and large Elvis pictures. Oh, and an enormous robot made out of stacked TV sets.

A must see! Go see for yourself.
