Banksy Buzz

LA's been all about BANKSY recently. See the Oscar's are Sunday, and senor Banksy and his movie "Exit Through the Gift Shop" are up for Best Documentary.

"Crayola Shooter" on the Urban Outfitter's in Westwood -
which I walk by everyday
So "Banksy" has been tagging tinseltown for the last week and a half or so.  Annnnd, of the seven new Banksy works that popped up this month (that I know of), 4 of them are on the very route I commute on - or were, two have already been removed.  Pretty pretty awesome.

Okay The LA Banksy tour recap in case you want to wander around LA and check them out:  There are 5 still up that I know of.  "Crayola shooter" is still up in Westwood, "Livin' the Dream" - the billboard on Sunset has been taken down, "Charlie Brown arsonist" - which was on an abondoned burned down buidling in West Hollywood, was stolen or removed or something, "Dog Wizz" is in Beverly Hills and is still up, and I haven't seen the other three, "Kite Caution," "Crayola House Foreclosure," and "This looks a bit like an elephant" but I think they're still up. Recap photo from here.

Okay, where are they: Just click on the map to go to the actual google map for more precise locations.

UPDATE: "Kite Caution" and "Crayola House Foreclosure" are no more...gone...removed by thieves or the owner or something.

It was one of the best days of my adult life when we toured the Banksy exhibit in Los Angeles. I'm ready for more touring of the El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula... Maybe during spring break!

Foreclosures can be tricky situations which can be difficult to find ways to prevent them. There are options out there for debtors who find themselves facing
a foreclosure sale. The best thing to do is consult an attorney to solve the matter especially if the matter does not yet get worse.
