Graffiti and Monsters and Bears - Oh My
Heading a couple of blocks south of HK Super on Western near 3rd Street, you can make a left and see a beautiful piece in reds and blues along the side of the wall.
However, right next door is a Korean store which sells herbs and "natural" remedies I think. It's very animal-based, that's for sure.
It was closed, so I had to peer in through the door, but inside, there was a (real) bear with a (fake) snake in its mouth. And this sign:
And if that's not nearly enough, there's also a 5 foot tall green monster standing on a sign outside the store
And the sign he's standing on features a goat. Whew. More of the art - and monster - after the jump. All photos by Mark Mauer.
So, what are you selling that requires images of deer, pumpkins, green monsters, bears, snakes and a goat? The mind reels. Still, there's some very nice street art next to it.
