ART IN THE STREETS
Finally made it to the Street Art exhibit over at MOCA a couple weeks ago.
It was one of the last Sundays before it closes and there was a huge crowd. Really hot day and thankfully I had some comped tickets so I narrowly avoided waiting in the ridiculous line out front. Apparently I hadn't realized that going to art museums on the weekend has now somehow become a cool thing to do. (I'm sure the people at Disneyland are panicked)
Yogi. Steam rolled.
The range of styles and types of pieces on display was immense but I always tend to like stuff like this - clever twists on the mundane that flip your perspective on something and make people smile.
Anyway, got to see all my faves:
Retna. This dude really blew up seemingly out of nowhere. Amazing work and a style that is truly all his own.
Banksy. Few weeks back Banksy decided to sponsor free admission to the exhibit on Mondays for the general public for the duration of the show. He released a statement that read, “I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it."
And of course, Mr. Cartoon.
