The creations are topical, shareable, and relatable, instigating a local phenomenon. And he doesn’t quit, with new installations popping up in front of bus stops and street corners everywhere, everyday. Citizens can recognize his handiwork by the signature typewriter that so poignantly combines images and text. He is playing on this perception of graffiti which usually involves some aspect of both, and which is ubiquitous in LA, but he presents it with an entirely new perspective by using his street art to inspire and reflect on what makes this city and the individuals who occupy it special, and in order to start a conversation with the community. See some of his tongue-in-cheek, badass love letters to LA below.
On LA & The Industry:
This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I am part of a huge group show featuring @PlasticJesus @IMHUGE @UnfukYourself @Mear_One and some bloke named Banksy — just to name a few. @SurLeMurArt is a celebration of Street Art, Fine Art, and Photography being held at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, California from Feb 19th – 21st. The Opening Night Reception of Sur le Mur is this Friday, February 19th from 6-10PM. Be there. #WRDSMTH #SurLeMur
Oscar Week begins . . . First and foremost, I'd like to thank @Teachr1 for allowing me and @IMHUGE to take over his city-granted utility box on Hollywood and LaBrea for one week. If you live in Hollywood, you know the pain and frustration we're all about to incur with the shut down of Hollywood Blvd for the next six days leading into The Oscars. Be afraid. Be very afraid . . . Click over to @IMHUGE's feed to see what he did with the other side of the box. #WRDSMTH #Oscars #Oscars2016 #AcademyAwards
'nightfall' rides on Broadway in DTLA I'm collaborating once again with the @DoArtFoundation in order to celebrate the awesomeness that is @TheCityOfLosAngeles. I was given a couple more boxes and a few walls in DTLA. WRDs & Pics to come . . . Photo Credit: @hollieself #WRDSMTH #DoArtFoundation #DTLA #DiscoverLA #LAStory
On Modern Love:
'the only lie' Realized the other day that I have not done a utility box version of 'the only lie' — at least not here in States. London got a phone booth version, but, as much as I adore that city, why should they have all the fun? So…I decided to update the werk on Ocean Ave & Washington Blvd and now this WRD rides in Marina Del Rey/Venice. Happy Sunday everybody. #WRDSMTH
