X (on display at Lab Art in Los Angeles)

Street artist X (aka Thank You X) is everywhere.  If you live in Los Angeles, surely you’ve spotted his work on the streets.  If you haven’t seen it, you better tilt your head up because X is notorious for putting up art in those hard to reach places (see photos below).  His art has been featured on Good Day LA and actress Demi Moore owns his work. Why X?  X will tell you why!

According2g: When did you start doing street art?

X: I put my first poster on the street around 2002. I started off making posters with weird photos of my friends on them. I would paste them around Orange County. I stopped for a few years and got back into when I moved to LA in 2009.

A2G: How did you get the name X? Do you realize how hard it is to google?

X: I like how hard it is to google. Some people call me ‘X’ some call me ‘Thank You X’. To me X means a lot of things. I feel like it adds some mystery.

One of the great things about Los Angeles is that you can be getting your buzz on and then hours later getting up to paint the town pink.

Thank You Andy

Thank You Andy by X

Happy birthday to X, a Los Angeles-based street artist who loves to pay tribute to one of the contemporary masters – Andy Warhol.  “Thank You Andy” by X has appeared all over the streets of Los Angeles and after getting a bunch of great buzz at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, X has made the leap into showing his work in galleries.  You can see the art of X at Lab Art in Los Angeles (located at 217 South La Brea) – or on a street corner near you.  A word of caution, if you are combing the streets of LA looking for X’ work, my suggestion is to look up – way up!  Happy birthday X.  xxx
