Congratulations to Lab Art in Los Angeles for their one year anniversary in business! I’ve been fortunate enough to visit the gallery many times over the last year and it has become a must visit destination when I am in the city. To celebrate this amazing accomplishment, Lab Art is presenting “The Usual Suspects,” which is a ‘greatest hits’ (pun definitely intended) of the work of some of the great street artists that have been instrumental in the success of the gallery. The All-Star lineup includes Alec Monopoly, AJL, DD’$, Cyrcle, Thank You X, Destroy All Design, Mar, Felix, Kai, Desire Obtain Cherish, Kai, Cali Killa, Gregory Siff, Louis XXX, Chad Muska, KH Number 7, Septerhed and Dog Byte. Wowza!
As the largest gallery of Street Art in the United States, Lab Art has its finger on the pulse of what’s hot in the streets and within its first year, a sister site at the Mondrian in LA has popped up, with more locations coming soon!
Lab Art has also hosted numerous live painting events over the last year and has received international coverage on these events.

In addition to the great art on display (which is set up like a museum!) Lab Art has been a great supporter of this blog and I am grateful for their friendship!
But enough gushing (though I could go on). Enjoy some photos from “The Usual Suspects!” Lab Art is located at 217 South La Brea in Los Angeles. Tell them G sent you!

Morons - Foolish Choice by Kai.
On my recent working/vacation to Los Angeles, I was very excited to check out the latest in the world of street art. I’ll be posting my findings in the coming days and weeks, so please be patient. One of the rulers of the streets at the moment is Kai or Kaiaspire. I saw the Marlboro-parody cigarette pack ads: Morons all over the streets of Los Angeles. Of course, I loved this immediately. Several blocks later, I discovered another image of Marlon Brando wearing the logo on a T-shirt. Genius!
By breaking the main rule of not walking in LA, several blocks later, on a walk through the city, I ran into the artist! For obvious reasons, the artist did not want to show their face, but I was allowed to have the following photo taken:

Thanks Kai! Keep up the great work! Would love to see you around in the Big Apple!
