…got a huge boost recently with these two new pieces by German graffiti duo Herakut. (Click on all images for a larger version.)

And then there’s this. Just as sweet, but for a totally different reason.

Glad I saw these before some asshole painted over them,

…yesterday; specifically, two of artist JR’s twenty-plus new pieces from his “The Wrinkles of the City” show located around town.

Here’s a photo (and a closeup) of a piece on Venice Boulevard (click on each image for a larger version):

And here’s a piece (with a special appearance by Marla) on Melrose:

…KB and I checked out a couple of the new Banksy pieces that popped up around town last week.

Unfortunately, someone already cut the Charlie Brown piece out of the wall it was on, but we did manage to check out two pieces.

For some reason, some dickbag threw paint on “Crayola Shooter” (click on images for larger versions):

The pissing dog, however, was untouched:

I wish I had gotten to see either the billboard or the Charlie Brown piece, but I still feel pretty lucky to now have seen four Banksy pieces in person. (Click here to see the first, and here to see the second.)

He’ll be robbed of an Oscar,

…KB and I checked out two pieces of street art.

First, we went downtown and hit up the second piece that Banksy left when he was in town last week for the premiere of “Exit Through the Gift Shop.”

Here’s the whole piece (click on all images to view larger versions):

Then we hit up this Shepard Fairey piece that popped up on the side of a building on Melrose Avenue a few weeks ago. The piece is a collage of huge sheets of wheat-paste posters.

Here’s the entire building:

…I saw yesterday.

First, two wheat paste posters that are clearly by the same artist. The first one was near the corner of La Cienega and Pico:

And this one was way out in Santa Monica on Main Street:

And lastly, a creepy-faced poster that reminds me of both Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig when he was in the Misfits:
