When buildings come down in Hollywood it does a couple of things. It exposes older pieces that may have been well hidden before hand, and it usually frees up a couple of blank walls that make up a nice big canvas some enterprising painters.

On Hobart and Santa Monica there's currently not only two walls full of art – one from '06 and one from August '07 – but also an excellent Che, that looks like it was created from 8-bit programming by using the concrete squares as pixels. Then if that wasn't enough, when I drove around the block, giant Easter Island stone heads!
