Cache Bicycle Mural Destroyed
I'm predicting a lot of stupid boneheaded moves that are going to destroy a lot of beautiful street art in our city in a misguided effort to "stamp out graffiti." They'll paint over beautiful pieces that have graced neighborhood walls for years, and once those pieces are gone, ugly tags will show up overnight, leading to yet more calls for police to crack down. It'll be a downward spiral of ugliness and self-fulfilling prophecy that has already become the hallmark of this decade.
Oh what's that you say? It's happening already? So it is... This fine piece by Cahce, Makatron and EyeOne on Heliotrope and Melrose was recently painted over. Metroblogging LA has the whole sad, dumb story.
