The show everybody’s talking about. The enigmatic urban artist and prankster with no peer. Banksy. Barely Legal. Downtown LA wherehouse. Quite possibly the show of the year. I got there around 2:30 on Friday. Just right – not too crowded but plenty of people enjoying themselves. Highlights? Some might say the police van or the painted live pink elephant or the stenciled semi outside, or the flying gas-mask clad spraypainting angel… Those were amazing but I myself prefer the large stenciled canvases that squarely take aim at almost every aspect of western society — some are stark and other works made laugh. Of course, I did my thing and snapped pic after pic — most everything should be here. Warning: If you live in LA, make the trip out. It’s more than worth it.
