Street Artists In The News

Street Artists In The News

We're guessing WEHO City Council decided to listen to this guy

Shortly after street artist BLU’s installation on the wall of the Geffen Contemporary in downtown LA was whitewashed, we learn via Curbed LA what our Eavesdrop column had rumored weeks before: that another street artist, Shepard Fairey, is in the architecture news as well.

The legendary/notorious “Hope” poster creator was just chosen by the West Hollywood city council to design an art piece for the almost-complete West Hollywood Library (MDA Johnson Favaro’s really really big white structure across from the PDC with an equally big garage ) more than a year after the council un-selected him amidst controversy.

This is getting confusing… The library is also working with artist David Wiseman, whose swoopy white forms seem well matched to the building’s swoopy white aesthetic.
