Why is this noteworthy? Unbeknownst to me and likely to the majority of the population, in 2002 Los Angeles prohibited the creation of mural work (on public or private buildings). The Los Angeles Freewalls project hopes to change that.</p> <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg" alt="design, la, mural" title="design, la, mural" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="416" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_01.jpg?1335832838" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg?1335832945" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="652" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_02_0.jpg?1335832946" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="682" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_03.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_04.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="250" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_05.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_06.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="830" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_07.jpg?1335832949" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program#comments activism design graffiti losangeles street art video Tue, 01 May 2012 00:38:20 +0000 wardandrews 4217 at http://design.org Miniature Street Buildings by Evol http://design.org/blog/miniature-street-buildings-evol <p><a href="http://www.evoltaste.com/" target="Evol">Evol</a>, a Berlin-based street artist, transforms city elements into these smaller cities and miniature buildings using a series of stencils with incredible detail. These sprayed and printed electrical box and street object makeovers are so detailed, it amazes me that they weren't tediously hand-painted. Some of them, especially those standing on their own, are so convincing you may have to look twice.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="590" title="Design, evol, buildings" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/07/27/evol_streetart_building_13.jpg?1311796589" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/miniature-street-buildings-evol" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/miniature-street-buildings-evol#comments design germany illustration public street art Tue, 26 Jul 2011 21:14:18 +0000 jessicapatterson 3155 at http://design.org Modern and Minimal and Street Art? http://design.org/blog/modern-and-minimal-and-street-art <p>Italian street artist <a href="http://www.ekosystem.org/0_ITW/ct/">CT's</a> tags are straight lines, simple curves and pops of color.
