Making Suckers Kneel

Caltrans recently buffed the walls on this section of the Los Angeles freeway. A clean canvas made it a perfect opportunity for this large scale freeway production. This is a great and dangerous spot due to its high visibility. It's great because unless you are blind you cannot miss it, but the wall is so open it makes the artist highly noticable during work.

It looked look finished yesterday but new highlights and colors have been added last night. See Kzer's Flickr for the in progress work. Is more coming?

Ironlak Test All Colors

Ironlak - Test All Colors
There has been a lot of buzz lately about Ironlak, Australia's answer to the European dominance of graffiti spray paint. Earlier this year the faulty valve has been fixed and the company recently announced a limited edition can designed by LA's billboard master, Augor.

James from Oink has put Ironlak to a test no one has done before. He tested every single one of Ironlak's colors. That's 63, if you are counting. Enjoy!



The Ironlak flirt is so sweet!

The mayhem continues. This is the third consecutive billboard that has been blessed by Augor in the same location. This time is he is joined by graffiti artist Pharoe. I hope the trend continues on forever. (See pics of Feed Me and Fuck Cops billboards)

Chaka Resurrection - Opening Night

We attended Chaka's art show at MidCity Arts on April 25, 2009. The show displayed exactly what Chaka was known for: Having his clean Chaka tags everywhere in Los Angeles. There were canvases, spray cans, signs, a drum kick and even a fire-hydrant with Chaka's tags on it. For the younger generation that attended the show, this was the first time they were able to see tags of the infamous graffiti writer that got his fame 18 years ago.

For more information about Chaka, check out the article that appeared in today's Los Angeles Times.

In the back, we were also treated to tags of another Los Angeles graffiti legend: Oiler LOD, IFK, COI. In the early 90s, Oiler had Los Angeles completely covered. This included streets, billboards, buses, freeway signs and freeway overpasses. He had the most insane spots. My most favorites were the backs of hanging street signs. There are still some that are running today.
