We were riding down the Speedway today when we saw this piece by Shepard Fairey peering at us from behind a chain-linked fence near the intersection with Brooks Court in Venice, in Los Angeles. The wheat-paste appears on the facade of a condemned building overlooking an equally barren courtyard. We
The choice of footwear says a lot about our stylistic sensibilities. This week we ventured in James Jebbia’s collaborative universe in search for the new COMME des GARÇONS x Vans x Supreme sneakers. Supreme thrives on marketing exclusivity to the streetwear crowd, and collaborations are a smart way to succeed with this
We’ve long admired the works by the Art of Chase. This mural animates the intersection of Brooks and Pacific with his familiar “Remember Who You Are” project, blasting through the brick facade to reveal his signature eyes motif. It’s always nice to encounter a piece by the Art of Chase,
The glass-and-steel tower at the L.A. Live building complex in Los Angeles is an imposing presence on the skyline as you approach city’s downtown from almost every direction but the north. The building is the first major new skyscraper in L.A. since 1992. Since it’s completion a few years ago,
There’s this awesome, fun wheat-paste street-art piece we stumbled across that’s a mash-up of a wolf, cheetah and unicorn. The artwork is by artist Diana Garcia. You can find it on the side of Gjelina restaurant on Abbot-Kinney Boulevard in Venice, in Los Angeles. Love it.

Another one of French street-art superstar JR’s giant eyes. This one at Gjelina, a trendy restaurant on the hip Abbot-Kinney strip in the Venice area of Los Angeles.
We’ve decamped to Los Angeles for a few days, where we like to start our days with serious coffee from Intelligentsia Coffee at our satellite Global Graphica home, at Sunset Junction in Silver Lake. Pictured below are a couple of Black Cat espresso shots and an Indonesian slow-pour coffee.
Some superdope street art on a property hoarding fence near the intersection of Beverly Boulevard and Virgil Avenue in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.
There’s a Mattel toy store in the Delta Airlines terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). WTF? Who knew? Well, we do, now. So in case we need a set of Hot Wheels at the last minute, we’re all sorted out. The shopping-mall-ification of airports isn’t new. In places like
We’re fans of artist Walter de Maria and his massive abstract, geometric sculptural installation artworks. This one at the always reliable and first-rate Los Angeles Country Museums of Art, a.k.a., LACMA, is an epic work that fills a warehouse-size gallery in the museum’s Resnick Pavillion.
The white neon-light “America” sign (titled Rückenfigur) by New York-based artist Glenn Ligon at the “Human Nature” contemporary art exhibition at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (or LACMA).
This week we added a striking new volume from Taschen to our library of coffee-table photography books at Global Graphica HQ. “Leroy Grannis, Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s” is a massive retrospective collection of iconic photographs by one of the leading image-makers of the the genre and the
