THE GUERILLAS

L.A. street artists add a refreshing vibrancy to the Sunset Strip courtesy of some rockin’ original art that pays homepage to rock icons and Hollywood legends.

LACMA may have been on lockdown as we wait out the crazy corona crisis, but local guerrilla artists have been busy keeping the urban landscape interesting with original works of art that have been dotting the Sunset Strip lately.

Rock icons like KISS, Star Wars heroine Princess Leia, sports great Mike Tyson, and legendary rock and roll club Whisky A Go-Go are just a few of the fascinating subjects that inspired some of the stellar street art that we’ve come across recently in WeHo.

Prolific artist like Teacher, CimArt L.A., and Alec Monopoly have all been busy posting new artwork along the famous thoroughfare, from Hollywood to Beverly Hills. Whimsical characters and serious political narratives are reflected in the randomly posted artwork, and each is fascinating in its own right while making Rock Row even more exciting with cool original graphics and Illustrations that pay homage to rock ‘n’ roll, pop culture, Hollywood icons, and the Southern California lifestyle.

And, of course, Robert Vargas’ incredible Eddie Van Halen mural at Guitar Center Sunset is so awesome that it should be behind glass! We never get tired of seeing that mammoth mural.

Check out some of the latest awesome street art that we recently spotted on the Sunset Strip, below.
