The Best Cities for Street Art
Where to Go: Some of L.A.’s best spotting grounds are in La Brea (just east of Beverly Hills). Pay special attention to the stretch of North La Brea Avenue around Melrose Avenue and Beverly Boulevard; Banksy—easily the world’s most famous street artist—has left his mark here, in several spots just outside the Beverly Cinema.
What to Look For: As well as the Banksy pieces (which includes the caveman-with-fast-food stencil shown here), you might see Warhol-style colorized photo portraits from relative newcomer MBW. Also check out gas-station walls for spooky skeleton Pegasus stencils from Skullphone.
