With these tours, you’ll see some truly original sites and have some unique experiences in Los Angeles.
After you do the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it’s time to check out some truly original things to do and see in Los Angeles.
We kick off on Abbot Kinney which has seen an explosion of street art in the last five years; on top of the art we dip into the history of Venice and Abbot Kinney himself. After an hour, it’s the back streets to the beach, uncovering some hidden gems and some classic murals rolling back the decades. The tour includes artists from Portugal, USA, Ireland, Italy, Germany, UK, France, Netherlands, South Africa, Argentina & more. We will see sculptures, stencils, murals from portraiture, typography and plenty of graffiti – we discuss each piece of work as we go, the artist and the style. In between it’s up to you to make the tour; past topics include issues the community faces, from internal fallouts, corporate commissions, gentrification of the area, finding wall space, you name it. Beyond Abbot Kinney, we pass Venice skate park, Muscle Beach, the Venice sign and the beach – where skateboarding was born – finishing up at the Graffiti Walls.
