MOCA - The Los Angeles Graffiti Wall

Los Angeles Graffiti Wall at MOCA
There has been lots of positive and also negative things said about the Art in the Streets exhibit at MOCA in Los Angeles. We are not here to judge. This is one of our favorite installations at the museum. It is not complete, but manages to show many of the heavy hitters and influencing members of Los Angeles graffiti.

We took a bunch of close up pictures trying to highlight all the graffiti writers that hit this wall. Our favorite of course is the Oiler tag and throw up. For those that don't know, Oiler owned the streets of Los Angeles in the early 90s. Bus bombing, freeways, heavens, Oiler was up from the valley to East LA. It is also nice to see Wisk and Ser being on this wall. They were the early pioneers of Los Angeles freeway graffiti.
