I recently visited The Arts District, an area of Downtown Los Angeles filled with old industrial buildings that were once abandoned and decaying (near the railroad tracks, etc.). Many of these buildings were converted to cheap housing for artists as well as reconditioned as art galleries. Due to a more recent wave of new construction and gentrification, the area is not so cheap any more. The outer walls of these buildings are used for murals and other smaller paintings and miscellaneous art projects.
For this post, I put together a few shots of these murals just to give you a taste for what’s there. Some of these are only a section of the entire mural. Since I don’t know the names of the murals, I gave the images a numbered title in the order in which I found/shot them, so in a sense, you’ll be following along my route 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
