DEANSKII INTERVIEW

grill340

 

DEANSKII is L.A. born and raised, and uses his film photography and ‘zines to give the world an insight into his life in the city. We got a chance to discuss photography and tacos with a man who loves his family, his crew, and documenting the art, triumphs, and tragedies of underground Los Angeles…

What’s your favorite taco?
I have to save my dad makes the best beef and potato tacos. I add some sweet chili sauce to it and it’s fire. But place-wise, I like the carnitas tacos at Diana’s in Carson, plus they’re open 24/7 can’t go wrong with that.

The Art Cards of the Graffiti Hunter ~ Los Angeles

IMG_5826

In downtown Los Angeles there is a hidden mural above Olvera Street by David Alfaro Siqueiros, who in 1932, writing after his deportation from the United States said: “I believe I have done something interesting here. I have initiated a movement of outdoor murals that I judge to be very serious, murals under the sun, under the rain, facing the street. If one muses over this, one recognizes the basis of art of the future that [will] be public to its fullest extent.”

The Graffiti Hunter’s goal is to document artists working in public art and create unique content to build awareness of their work. Every few months he produces art cards that are hidden on the streets and in the shops of the LA Arts District.  Whenever possible,  the cards are dropped next to the original art. The cards are a showcase of public art in Los Angeles, and hopefully serve to entice the public to take up the hunt for more. Please enjoy this gallery of photos of the Graffiti Hunter’s Art Cards. Follow the Graffiti Hunter on Instagram.
