Greg Craola Simkins and Dabs Myla Mural
I was very excited to see a mural by Greg Craola Simkins and Dabs Myla in Downtown Los Angeles (at 7th and Mateo). Perhaps not new to the city, but since I live in New York and don’t make it out this way too often, it was new to me! Located nearby is another mural from Dabs Myla.

Sloan Fine Art in New York has a not to be missed exhibit celebrating Alternative Press Magazine’s 25th anniversary. The exhibit features rarely seen photos, works of art from rock stars, past AP magazine covers and rock-inspired art. There’s one slight catch: like rock and roll goes, this exhibit is only in town for 3 days – so you have no time to waste!
Partial gallery view of AP covers
On display, you’ll see works from: Adam Jones (Tool), Andy The Butcher Mrotek (The Academy Is), Black Francis (Pixies), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Greg Craola Simkins, Jayme Thornton, Joby J. Ford (The Bronx), Jordan Buckley (Every Time I Die), Justine Frischmann (Elastica), Marilyn Manson, Marina Chavez, Marc Porter McKnight (Atreyu), Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio), Morgan Slade (Miss Derringer), Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Ralf Strathmann, Roberto Chamorro, Sean Murphy, Shepard Fairey, Shirley Manson (Garbage), Tim Armstrong (Rancid) and Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes) among many others.
Baby's on Fire by Marilyn Manson
It’s hard to pick my favorite works because there were so many cool pieces on display, but I liked two works from the Mansons alot. Shirley Manson of the band Garbage as well as Marilyn Manson!
Peking Noodle (Ode to Louise Bourgeois) by Shirley Manson
Another one of my favorites was from Tim Armstrong of Rancid (see below).
