Los Angeles (specifically the well-trafficked area of Melrose Avenue between Fairfax and La Brea) was the center of the street art world. Taking their cues from the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street, famed and infamous artists such as Shepard Fairey, Morley, Mr. Brainwash, and even Banksy took to the streets and painted, postered, and stenciled their witty, politically engaged works on billboards, lampposts, utility boxes, even the sidewalks.
"Where Else But The Streets" not only captures the vibrant renaissance in Los Angeles street art, but also chronicles the stories from the artists themselves, getting inspired, getting started, getting famous, and becoming outlaws.
FEATURING: Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Mr. Brainwash, Ron English, Alec Monopoly, Free Humanity, Lydia Emily, Teachr, Skullphone, Morley, WORDSMITH, Thrashbird, Thank You X, Gregory Siff & more!
