Sorry for changing the subject, but is that some Steve Powers inspired advertising in the background ?
Those are the new MTA billboards that are all over LA (not sure if they did them in house or contracted out to a design firm)...as to the inspiration, I don't know any details, as corporate america has often been inspired by street art (or ripping off, depending your perspective...LOL).
The city of LA is pretty broke right now (like the rest of California in terms of budgetary and infrastructure related matters especially)...so my guess is that they are hustling pretty hard in my opinion in promoting the bus system to try & get the ridership up tremendously. Those ads are all over town and definitely stick out.
Why some have not been altered...not sure...but those kinda present themselves as a big red bullseye in my opinion.
Mear One just finished up a brand new mural on Glendale Blvd. in Los Angeles. Building on themes typical of his work, and set in one of his expansive allegorical landscapes signature to his style, the piece depicts a young girl on the street huddled under a blanket, while surrounded by an oil field in a toxic wasteland.
“It’s about innocence that’s been lost and how the world has ruined the future of its children and left them stranded in a cold barren and destroyed world that once was beautiful. She’s dealing with the by-products of the decisions of greed and capitalism. I did the mural in that location because people line up there every morning to get on the 2 freeway, and it gives you something to reflect on while you’re sitting in traffic running up gas.”
