A freshly stenciled female face that appears to be wearing a burka on a telephone pole in the 18b.
We've seen this image a few times around town, usually with a reverse image on the other side
to form a heart. This time, just half-hearted. Artist unknown.

Who's At The Door?

New piece from the same unknown artist in our previous post, found across from Recylced Art on Casino.
This time a Picassoesque face with fat and thin inked lines on yellowed paper & broken into two pieces to give it the appearance of screaming. I'd love to give someone credit for these, but no idea who this artist is!

Nothin Here

On our most recent visit to the 18b we actually had a hard time finding new street art,
and our visit before that we watched a family of five buff some long lasting art pieces!!
I really find it hard to believe that in an area named the art district you have rogue families painting over
and peeling off different artists artwork, so this is a call to artists to get off your asses and get the hell up!
These pieces were found outside of Recycled Art in the 18b, a CJ the Kid snail
and a hand painted minimalistic lined drawing of a face with the words "nothin here".  ...pretty much.

Che-Man Fever

Los Angles street artist Che gets up with his Che-Man image in the 18b Arts District.
A more detailed look into his artwork reveals his intentions. "Each ghost represents a specific “isms”:
Racism, Imperialism, Fascism and Terrorism. Now take a minute and ask yourself and imagine,
what if these “isms” did not exist in our society? How far more advanced would we be as a civilization?"

The Juice Is Still Loose

A few more of the “We Are All Simpson 32” pieces in the 18b. This first one is stenciled in multi colors with a crudely executed textured border. The stencil is done on two torn pages featuring what looks like cannons.
The other pieces found in the same area are a fireman and one with maps and missiles.

Soft Butch

On an electrical box by the Container Park we found a white sticker, peeling in the sun reading,
“Soft Butch” drawn in marker. Along with with a few older Civilian pasters.

Happy Mushroom

Downtown alley way garbage can covered in tags and dirt features a hand painted purple
and black mushroom paster distressed through time and marked with the words “GAY” across the top.
Well someone was right about one thing, that sure is one happy mushroom! :)

Closer To Commonwealth

A closer look at the sticker door installation behind Commonwealth, a 228 postal slap with a printed image from the 1986 film, Stand By Me. It features a young Kiefer Sutherland and an alive River Phoenix. The random movie still stands out among the boldly colored and ripped up stickers from Gumpus, Hesher Park and others surrounding it.

Stuck Off Fremont

Always something new on We Are Zombies' sticker door install on the side of Commonwealth downtown.
Las Vegas artist Gumpus takes control of the corner while layers of stickers and pasters peel away in the surrounding area.

Around The Block

Spotted in the 18b Arts District, a tag, a slap and a little painted block. I am unsure who decided to claim this spot down low first, but a tiny hand painted block sits glued to the ground beneath a fading hand drawn sticker NEKO and the tag above reading OTR.

We Are All Simpson?

We've spotting a few of these "We Are All Simpson 32" stenciled pieces around lately.
I'm not entirety sure who is making these or what the connection between ourself and O.J. Simpson is.
Maybe we've simply missed the point to this piece about a faded star past his glory, perhaps that IS the point.
Artist unknown.

Lady Fremont

This is the second hand painted piece on Fremont, featuring a woman's face on old news paper.
The image is simplistic, painted in only black with the image shape hugging the shape of her face.
Joined by a multi-language sticker from Raw Linen on the corner of Fremont and 8th Street.

Window Shopping

The members of 3 Baaad Sheep have the 18b on lock with their different pieces and art,
we can always find some new pieces from them almost every time we visit. Like this new piece of a pink,
one eyed fella with antlers doing a little window shopping. Well actually it said "window shoping" but they fixed it before pasting, classic! Pay no attention to that persons reflection cuz we don't even know who that is.
