City of Los Angeles…The NEW Graffiti City!

When you think of a city littered with graffiti, I think of classic video of New York City in the 70’s. Well, they cleaned up New York City. So now, The City of Los Angeles is the NEW, KING of Graffiti!

Welcome to Los Angeles…GRAFFITI CITY! It starts as soon as you enter the 10.

Zuma Dogg has already declared that graffiti is about to REALLY start showing up and spreading like an uncontrolled wildfire — and will be the most frustrating problem that the city will be powerless over.

The only solution will be to have “graffiti crews” drive around the city at 6:00am, every morning and paint it over. (We have traffic enforcement for meters, trash collection and other city services…gonna have to add one more.)

TODAY, traffic was the MOST gridlock I have ever experienced. And as I was moving 5 miles an hour on the 10 freeway, I really started noticing all the new graffiti along the freeway.
And with my foot on the brake for so much of the ride, I was able to snap a bunch of it on the ZumaCAM. But there was so much, I was only able to capture a fraction.

This was what I could catch during a couple exit stretch along the 10E to Grand Avenue exit Downtown Los Angeles.

The picture of the new parking meter splashed with yellow paint was taken from the same spot as the Hollenbeck Area van. (Ooops!) Like I said, gonna be hard to nip.

  1. You are correct, sir. I began to notice the eruption of tagging about 6 – 8 weeks ago.I don’t drive the freeway much.And I’m almost o.k. with freeways being the canvas, if thats whats needed. No one lives on the freeway or has their business sited there.But my senses are jarred by the appearance of tags on residential streets and commercial areas that have never had much or had been tag free for many years.It is worrisome. Im not talking about colorful burners and illicit, yet talented graffitti art.What i see are names. Of gang monikers and gangs/numerals.With arrows declaring dominion over territory. Streaked long across walls of peoples homes and high above streetfront businesses.and cross outs. and tag overs.more paint will be spilled on the streets, it seems.Question: is that all we can expect an increase in spilling?Or do we prepare for acts more wicked to sprout up and demand top billing???
