18th Street Gang Graffiti Creates Living Gallery Out Of L.A.'s Pico-Union (Video)
18th Street has created a living art gallery in Pico-Union.
L.A. is a vast, glorious place. But some neighborhoods you'd just rather tour from the comfort of your own home.
Thankfully, someone did the sightseeing for you and brought you this handy, dandy video diary of Pico-Union's glorious 18th Street gang graffiti (via LA Taco). (Actually we like Pico-Union, so we're being a little tongue-in-cheek here ... ).
The footage includes appearances (in no particular order) by ...
... Shooter, Joker, and, of course, Baby.
There's big, blocky graffiti, little, scribbly child graffiti and even a how-to on representin' the dieciocho with your hands (if you have three of them ... handy) in beautiful blue graffiti.
The video's country music is a little rednecky, but you get the picture.
18th Street's vision of a brighter Pico-Union.
