Los Angeles' War on Street Arists - Article Gets Sight Fired

Read the full article on LA Weekly

Sight was so prolific in his early days that he was known by peers, and graffiti watchers at large, as the "King of South Central."

In 2006, Sight was handed the harshest sentence any artist or law enforcement official can recall for graffiti vandalism: Eight years and four months in state prison.

Released after four years for good behavior, he's perhaps the most dramatic casualty to date in L.A.'s war on street art — a multipronged effort that views young graffiti artists as public enemy No. 1 and has destroyed even those graffiti-style murals painted with full consent of building owners. As galleries and museums increasingly recognize the movement's artistic value, government officials only become more determined to wipe it from the streets.

Today, two years after his release, with 10 unusual "felony" counts for nonviolent vandalism on his permanent record, Sight can't even get a job as a dishwasher. He says he's filled out hundreds of job applications, but potential employers won't believe that spraying paint on walls or etching one's name onto bus panels could lead to felony charges in America.

The star of L.A. Weekly's cover story..."Sight," fresh out of four years in state prison for scratching up the L.A. bus system as a teenager -- has been suspended from his job as a result of the story. Read the follow-up story on LA Weekly.

Venice Art Walls - End of an Era

The Venice art walls have transformed over the years from the infamous Venice Pavilion to the currently standing walls. One thing for sure is that you were always able to find Los Angeles graffiti writers painting the walls.

For the longest time ICU Art was running the walls. Sadly, due to funding that era has come to an end. Last weekend was the last time ICU was running these walls. Now the city will be in charge of the walls and will require a $20 fee per artist to paint them.

To commemorate the last weekend of the ICU run walls, many of LA's artists came out to paint there for the last time. Check out the pictures from the event.
