Art in the Streets

May 16, 2011

So I’m taking a break from posting Italy pictures and taking a quick detour into the realm of local art.  (To be honest, it actually doesn’t stray too far away from the art found in Italy, since there’s such a profound interest in street art in Italy too), but whether you call it graffiti or art, I think it’s safe to say that these people are talented.  For the next month or so, you can catch local and international street artists and their works at the MOCA in Los Angeles.  I went a couple of weeks ago and it was definitely interesting.  Here’s a peek:
