Streets: Anthony Lister Murals (Los Angeles) Part II

Continuing our summary of Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) murals while he was in Los Angeles (see the first set of walls here), we turn our attention to the last four locations. Including this photoset will be his work at the Ironlak store (above), De La Barracuda Part II, as well as spots in Melrose and Venice. His show at HVW8 came and went but the prolific Aussie definitely left his mark on the City of Angels while he was here. Photos after the jump by Carlos […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

I have been kindly asked by the nice guys here at AM if I would like to submit a weekly street art article from my Instagram feed. Without hesitation I accepted… For those of you who haven’t heard about Instagram, it’s an app on the iPhone where you can upload and share pictures, so all photos are taken with the iPhone.
