ROA in DTLA Arts District

there are quite a few murals by ROA in the LA Arts District. Just around the corner from Pizzanista! and they've managed to survive but the stop sign is now clean.

D*FACE - Scars and Stripes opening in West Hollywood

D*FACE - Scars and Stripes opening in West Hollywood. New work by D*FACE was anticipated by the crowd lined up down the block. I loved the carved wood images on old school desks. The skateboard sculptures and sliced book sculptures evolved from the 2011 show Going Nowhere Fast. This was a nice pop-up space for an the show and the outside wall of the building was perfect again for the new D*FACE mural. In the corner of the parking lot facing the busy Robertson intersection is a police car with D*FACE 3-D winged ghost w exhaust pipes crashed onto the hood. In the evening of the show more police cars gathered. A visual art event for fans who all ignored the tourist TMZ tour bus guide who kept asking us over a loud speaker why we were in line, finally someone yelled out "We're in line for American Apparel". (this space used to be an AA store) we all laughed as the open air bus left and headed up the street to probably yell out to the paparazzi staking out Kitson.
