Cream of the Crop!

For the past four days, I've had the pleasure of watching our favorite dynamic duo Dabs Myla work on their five-story collab wall with visiting graffiti superpower How & Nosm, identical twin brothers from Germany who are a force to be reckoned with when wielding a spraycan or roller. When you head down to the opening of this weekend's landmark "Art In the Streets" exhibit at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, make sure to get there a little early and walk the short distance to 3rd Street between Alameda and Traction to get a firsthand view of this massive, super smooth and intensely detailed freehand mural...

The project was made possible by L.A. Freewalls, which has been producing amazing murals all over the slowly revitalizing downtown warehouse district over the past two years. Here are a few shots I took of the mural in progress. Forgive my clumsy composite photo, I needed a wider lens!
