Living in Los Angeles we almost become immune to the relentless bombardment of cheap unimaginative “tagging.” By tagging I mean the creative typography of adolescents looking to mark their territory like packs of wild dogs. My building is a particularly attractive target. Three sides of a square stucco canvas are constantly ‘hit” with the illegible names of the teenagers who attend the nearby high school.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty good stenciled piece at the back of our building. It was nice to see that someone took the time to hand cut a card board stencil, plot out the perspective, trek out in the middle of the night, and spread their message.
