Apart from the dispensaries and warm weather, Los Angeles sucks. It might be the only city where someone would complain about cutesy street art and say it “seems ghetto.” Graffiti, we understand “being all scary and gang-like,” but does this bear and his woodland friends by artist Phil Lumbang look dangerous?
Well it doesn’t matter much now, thanks to ONE complaint from a neighbor, LA’s Building and Safety Department informed the couple who commissioned the mural that it’s in violation of the city’s ordinances on outdoor advertising or something and it will have to be removed or they’ll face fines, despite the fact that it was done legally, on private property, with the owner’s permission. Amazing. Even Fox News agrees that it should stay! |Public Ad Campaign|
