There She Is pays a visit to Fremont East with a hand painted wheatpaste of her most popular piece, Suicide Robot! This poor little guy pasted to the side of an electrical box looks like he had just about enough and just couldn't take it anymore. He got in the tub, plugged in and checked out. What a horrible way to go and yet he looks so peaceful in his robotic sleep. Nighty night little guy, sleep well...forever.

Before & After

Milk the Bunny held a small birthday party for Albert Einstein in the 18b Arts District, well actually it is another one of her hand painted pieces but it was put up in celebration of the theoretical physicist's birthday this past month. Using Arthur Sasse's famously whimsical photo of Einstein sticking his tongue out and with her trademark bunny ears, this is a wonderful and fun piece to find.....Now seems to be aging with the help of others on a return visit in the last photo.

Street Anime

Atomsk returns to the 18b Arts District with another large sized piece. An image of Satsuki Kiryuin, one of the main characters in the Anime cartoon Kill la Kill, stenciled in white & red spray paint and finished in what looks like a Sharpie...or some sort of black pen! We gotta say that is a technique we've never seen used to finish a street piece, interesting!

Garbage Face

Down the alley between Casino and Main we found this digital print of a painting, or is it a print of a digital painting. Hmmm?.. Well it is a pretty cool artist unknown find in the 18b Arts District! The artwork kinda reminds us of some sorta weird updated Thomas Nagel piece, like a messy version with a similar palette possibly? Either way, this piece pasted to a garbage can is kinda retro and kinda cool.

Emcee Girl

Another LaRon Emcee hand painted piece spotted from his most recent run through the 18b Arts District.
A beautiful scarlet lipped woman with short black hair with his recurring iris and pupil-less eyes on the corner of Boulder and 1st. Smoke escaping her open mouth with a detailed group of people drawn next to her left eye, just springs forth a wealth of questions and possibles of who they are and what they might stand for. Great stuff!

Milk The Bunny with a new piece hopping onto the corner of 1st and Coolidge in the 18b Arts District. A colorful bunny with the Moon and clouds looming around its head. This spot was just one of many locations she included in her art scavenger hunt last week. How many of you scored a piece of artwork? We made it out and picked up two, hope we weren't the only ones!

Street Maintenance

Local artists There She Is and You Killed Me First return to the 18b Arts District to reclaim the wall on Charleston and Casino. These two artists have hit this spot numerous times, only to return with new pieces whenever they get buffed or removed. There She Is with a piece from her Medusa and her Gorgon‬ sisters triptych that can be found slithering around town. Joined by You Killed Me First with a huge and vintage looking Ouija planchette to help you connect to the other side.

Jungle Walls

Big thanks to MowgliArt for sending in these photos of some of his latest work. A little backstory: Before we moved from LA to Vegas we would regularly make trips to the 18b Arts District to soak in the local color, art and search for spots to get up. Mowgli is one artist that always stuck with us. We dug it and are glad to showcase his work on our blog. Thanks again for the photos, stay up!

Painted Lady

Olsenink returns with a new piece, a beautifully detailed image of a woman drawn in ink then brought into Illustrator for color. Hair filled with birds, flowers in her eyes, her face caught between pleasure and pain. A very striking and wonderful image! More great artwork from Olsenink for you to find in the 18b Arts District, looks like a few attempts to take this piece have been made and I don't blame you. Not at all!

Metropolitan Shrub

On a recent art hunt we found this heavily tagged wooden canvas of sorts, with a plant painted in a pale blue on the front. The top of the paint can still sitting on the ground like some sort of offering. This piece was leaning against the fence and attached pretty damn solidly, well we only know cuz we tugged on it to check it out. Hey, ya never know! Pretty interesting artist unknown piece found down an 18b Arts District alley.

Balloon Heads

A mysterious new piece floats through the 18b Arts District on a bed of spray painted blue water. This artist unknown piece with multi-heads and solemn looking faces is quite striking on the red and white wall, joined by someone's god awful chicken scratch tags. What is the deal with those?! Each face looks like they've been carefully drawn with one continuous and unstopping motion, finished by their signature up top that reads either B or B3? Interesting.

Don't Walk

Another stencil spotted from Los Angeles artist Thrashbird at the corner of Boulder and 1st in the 18b Arts District. We aren't sure if this is from Thrashbird's past visit with Teacher or if this spot was hit recently passing through town. One thing we do know is that we keep spotting these and we always appreciate finding new pieces of his work around the city!

Head In The Clouds Again

Emcee returns with some new pieces scattered around town, like this beautiful blue woman in the 18b. A wonderful hand-painted piece complete with his signature look of eyes missing their iris and pupils, which to us give his characters a mysterious and ghostly appearance of sorts. Intentional or not, its little touches like this that catch your eye and make his pieces stand out amongst the other artwork in the 18b Arts District. Great stuff!
