Paint the Town

LA Street Mural

Even the briefest tour around Los Angeles would reveal this striking fact: The City of Angels is abloom in a unique and unrivaled collection of public murals. From the rich diversity of its sprawling ethnic neighborhoods, the city’s walls, bridges and even freeway abutments have been transformed into street posters for Los Angeles’ cultural history and identity, showcasing an estimated 1,500 murals – more than any other urban center.”

    Love the idea of colour on walls – adds to the feeling of the town!

    I think Johannesburg (SA) artists should do something like this. What a change it would make to our city. These murals are fabulous.
