SHOW ME HOW
Miami graffiti artists seem to be having a moment, thanks in part to Jim and Karla Murray's Miami Graffiti tome (see pictures here). That led to an exhibition at the Mid-City Arts Gallery in Los Angeles earlier this month. Of course, you can't invite a bunch of graffiti artists out to L.A. and expect them to be content with leaving their mark solely on the aesthetic sensibilities of gallery-goers.
Crews and artists including MSG Cartel (which apparently still evades clueless Broward cops), Ikonz, and TCP all took the opportunity to make L.A.'s walls their canvas.
The above image is an MSG piece in Venice, from GraffHead.com. You can see more shots there.
