GRAFFITI-Banksy in Los Angeles

Los Angeles-Grafitti and things at Downtown and Chinatown
Travelling through the Downtown area of Los Angeles and meandering through the business, fabric and the Theatre districts – I discovered that I have never felt such a bad vibe from a city ever – this place really un-nerved me!

Nothing particularly jumped out at me and I didn’t really take much notice of anything until I came across a car park with a huge white washed wall – but evenso I just wanted to keep on moving.

It was only when I turned around did I discover a great piece of street art hidden away.

Amongst all the cars parked in this ground level car park was a design which was made to look like the ‘ing’ portion of the ‘Parking’ sign had also been whitewashed to only leave the letters ‘Park’ complete with a girl swinging from the letter A. It was a really simple idea but really subtle in it’s execution.

It was only when I searched afterwards for possible Banksy locations in America that I discovered that I had stumbled across my very first Bansky piece of street art and I didn’t even know it!

It gave me quite a buzz to think that I had found this wonderfully subtle but huge statement amongst a grotty downtown part of Los Angeles. Below is an animated version of the piece of street art.

  1. O TYPO a empurrar o baloiço da menina do Banksy | Correio do Porto - June 5, 2016

    […] MEMÓRIA descritiva: As palavras, muitas vezes, precisam de quem as ajude a reforçar o sentido da sua existência. É que de tão faladas e escritas parece que as pessoas se esquecem do seu verdadeiro sentido. Hoje o TYPO descobriu numa rua de Los Angeles, nos Estados Unidos da América, uma menina a brincar num baloiço preso à barra horizontal do A da palavra PARK. Graças ao artista Banksy a palavra PARK transfigurou-se no seu próprio significado. O significante (as letras P+A+R+K) identificou-se com o significado. Parabéns ao Banksy pelo trabalho e ao TYPO por o ter descoberto. No fim da caixa temos a legenda: O TYPO a empurrar o baloiço da menina do Banksy. da autoria de PML, inspirado no grafite em stencil daquele artista disponível aqui. […]
