Oscar Wilde said “Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist not the sitter.” I may not have agreed with this when I first started creating, but now, almost 20 years after I first picked up a camera, I can see its truth looking back on my body of work and its evolution.

Art vs. Advertisement

In my continuing quest to unravel the super graphics laws that are currently restricting murals in Los Angeles I have come across the key issue that continues to plague City Council. How do you distinguish Art from advertisement?

At first glance this seems to be easily done. One is created to advertise a product, the other is created to ............... You see where I am going with this. The reality is billions of people through out time have devoted countless hours trying to understanding the meaning behind the Art they are confronted by on a daily basis. From the Romans who would use Art to “ advertise “ their patrons social status to the Catholics who have created Art to propagate christianity. The lines between Art and advertisement have always been blurry.

With the success of MOCA's current exhibit "Art in the Streets" the flood gates have been opened to the many complex issues of the street art movement. A movement that has taken every major city in the world by storm.

My hope in this series of blogs is to open a dialog, take you through the issues one step at a time, and shed light on how other major cities have handled the issue of street art.  I think the best place to start the discussion is with "murals" commission by private property owners on commercial or residential property.

Kenzie Alexanda

I have heard the question raised over and over again " Why don't street artists just ask permission from the property owners? ". In reality many artists do ask, however in the city of Los Angeles, artwork murals on private property that is in view of the public is ILLEGAL regardless of whether or not the artist has permission, or if the property owner has commissioned the work.
