So Called Artists Diss LA Arts District Pieces

Besk UCA LOD
A few weeks ago we reported that a bunch of pieces got anonymously dissed in LA's Arts District. It turns out that it was done by a couple of so called artists that were showing at R & R Gallery a block away from those walls. They also dissed a mural a block away by Shepard Fairey.

"Jeremy Williams of District Millworks located across the street from the mural, recognized the marks as being from R & R Gallery's current show. ...he followed up by calling the gallery the next day and spoke with owner C.W. Mihlenberger, who said his gallery represented the two artists. Mihlenberger defended their actions and said they’d defaced the mural because, 'it was getting old.'

According to Jerald, after an exchange of calls from him, and pressure from neighborhood advocates, Mihlenberger has agreed to pay for the repair of the Shepard Fairey mural." - Read the full story at blogdowntown.com - be sure to read the comments as well.

But what about all the pieces those two have dissed? Is Mihlenberger going to pay for those? What about all the buff paint and spray paint that was used?

These two are out of their minds. They were trying to get cheap publicity by crossing out murals.

Special thanks to Afex THC for bringing this story to our attention.

I got something to say about that wall..... FEAR, BESK and all there friends who decided to paint toy piece's over KLEAN, ARBE, SINER, DRYE, LOKUS,and the other KOG LTS heads that had burners on that wall long before it was fenced in, back in 2006.... I guess LTS was on the wall to long and those toys decided it was a good idea to go over LTS KOG... Word of advice and also a rule in the graff game,(or at least I thought it was) don't cap shit y'all cant burn....Every single head that painted over that LTS landmark is TOY!!!! and has no respect and stole that wall from LTS. So there toy ass piece's deserved to get dissed by who ever dissed it. Thanks to who ever dissed them whack so called pieces. Good job!!!!! I hope to see LTS KOG get their wall back.

You got a point about the LTS KOG wall. But come on. They had that wall so long. Either keep it updated or give it up. It was lookin very dated. All the other walls in that spot get repainted frequently. Why is this one an exception? MSKs constantly update their shit. Even MR. Cartoon updated his wall. Those fools got lazy. No-one owns that wall except the building owner.

No disrespect to the LTS KOG crew.

Could it be that some cats like to see their work ride as long as possible and hustle more walls, instead of painting the same walls all the time? like that art district wall or them melrose alley walls... I'd get board painting the same walls all the time.

keep running your mouth like that and wonder why you/your crew will lose any respect you might have and start getting dissed. dont take all critism as negative. kog lts arent gods and dont own the graff game.

Who said they were? Didnt recall nor read on this thread about any one running the graff game or being gods.
No critism taken.... Someone started running their fat lip flapping gums with that ball hanger comment.

Lts Kog went over the Bashers Crew on that very wall. that stuff that Lts Kog did was straight wack. I'm not buying into that whole "it's our style" crap. All the people that painted on that wall were booty, those pieces had no style. At least Besk Fear and the rest did clean pieces.... and to all you toys talking smack about it being legal, are the same toys that linger around and bite techniques while these wall are done not saying a damn thing. If you aint' got the balls to go up to these legends and tell them all this stuff to their face, your word is as good as flushed down the toilet.... get a life, and a new hobby you worthless toys

I beg to differ... Bashers is toy and need to stay in the IE.... and a gang of fools did bite off LTS KOG steez so hard that heads like Og SINER (a true LA legend) dont get the regonition they deserved...while all the biters are using LTS KOG steez,doing art shows getting jobs and taking the credit

Fear and Besk are no toys, unless you consider over 25 years of consistent service to the graff game toyable? One would have to argue that what LTS or KOG had up on the wall before them was better. Thats a matter of opinion at most. I think the real toy here is the one that would make such a claim anonymously without leaving a name to back it up. He has an opinion but does he have balls? Thats the only real question.
