01 Jul Venice Beach
I hadn’t got around to posting about the piece I did on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach while we were in LA a few weeks back. It was good fun, really chilled spot, lots of friendly people, decent coffee (a rarity in the States) and tasty food. Not bombed at all, and certainly no graf from what I could see.
And then I spotted this over on The Dirt Floor. I know this happens, usually by some chromed up graf writers and I’ve no problem with it, all part of painting on the streets blah blah blah. I don’t know anything about this guy but his work seems to fall more into the Street Art category than the Graf one so you’d think he might have a little more respect for what I’ve done. I would have preferred if he had just gone right through my piece instead of adding on to the end. The bit he went over was my favourite part, we had to board up those windows so that panel is nice and flat and I could really move the paint around on it.
