Los Angeles is definitely a great place to find street art and graffiti. We recently received THE WORLD ATLAS OF STREET ART AND GRAFFITI book and got to experienced stories, sticker art, street art, and graffiti from all over the world. Hundreds of pages filled with high resolution photos and further information from the artists. A few of the artists the author writes about include Faile, Espo, Mark Jenkins, Gold Peg and Spy.

The thought never crossed my mind as I climbed over the playground’s chain-link fence with a few co-conspirators, armed with brushes, rollers, and two gallons of white paint, that what I was about to do would one day be consider art…”
