Punks Not Dead.

When you enter the warehouse, you get a little piece of paper that reads, "There's an elephant in the room. There's a problem we never talk about." And then you walk upstairs, and there is actually an elephant... in the room. Pink and gold and munching on carrots.


Famous stencil

Doctored Paris Hilton cd's from his recent record store stunt in England... in a plexiglass case with giant cockroaches, and their shit.

Wrinkly and wrinkly-er








Here is my one celebrity photo - and it sucks, I know. Brad and Angie were there (they bought several pieces), also Shepard Fairey, Keanu Reeves, Zach de la Rocha, one of the guys from The Bachelor, Perry Farrell, Kevin Smith, Meg from the White Stripes, and lots of LA art folk. There was a lot of people watching. A lot of "Ohhh hiii" and looking over the shoulder of the person you're talking with to see who else was around. At least there was brilliant art in every direction.






These fellows are making a movie - Life Remote Control - about Banksy and Shepard Fairey and lots of other artists. Here's the trailer on You Tube: Life Remote Control.
