Emerging talent in Los Angeles

July 2nd, 2009 | By | No Comments »

This is a guest post by sebastian from unurth

The street art I most enjoy posting on unurth is by those artists that haven’t broken into the mainstream yet, so when RJ asked me to do a guest post on Vandalog, I thought I’d post about some great emerging artists from here in LA.  No Brainwash or Fairey here, but some great, fresh stuff.

Bumblebee, who is probably best known for these hives in abandoned phone boxes

Phil Lumbang, who works for Shepard Fairey’s design firm during the day, does wonderful ‘polite bears’

K74 plays with a bunch of styles, but this is one of my favourites –
‘Moses bringin’ the noise’

Zoso (aka Zoso1) usually creates wonderful characters that are not of this world

ABCNT works with the Restitution Press crew, usually pasting his signature masked man

Shark Toof is pasting bigger and bigger sharks, often on complex, textured backgrounds

These are just a selection of the current scene in LA… sorry to those artists I didn’t include! You can keep up with these artists and others on unurth.

Thanks to RJ for letting me do a guest post on the great Vandalog;  he’s going to do a guest post on unurth soon.
