A delayed mural ordinance is creating confusion and frustration amongst artists, and building owners in Los Angeles. A recent wall painted by Zes, Push, Chris Brand, and Evan Skrederstu was painted over to serve as a backdrop for a production company, while another wall painted by Sand, Vyal, and Cope2 was buffed out by orders of the LAPD saying it was illegal to have a mural or graffiti piece on their property.

Barry McGee will make a return visit to show at Prism Gallery in Los Angeles tonight, May 11, 2012, with a large portion of work created at the gallery itself. In 2009, McGee held an exhibition for the gallery's inaugural exhibition, titled MindTheGap. Since then, the gallery has gone on to show many renowned international artists including David LaChapelle, Os Gemeos, Ryan McGinness, Andy Warhol, Araki, and a bunch more. This one should garner a ton of attention.

On our Monday morning cruise around, we got sucked into the oil painting world of Venice, California based Becca Mann. A mixture of Southern California, a bit of early California and Southwestern style shows up in her paintings, and a few nice ocean/surf scenes in her graphite works are all very well executed. A good start to the week.

Few photographers create the cinematic scenery that Alex Prager depicts in her work. Part film noir, part Wizard of Oz circa 2025, Prager has taken an aesthetic and made it one of the most recognizable in the world of contemporary photography. That is hard to do in this day and age. Right now, her Compulsion series is on simultaneous display at three galleries: Michael Hoppen Gallery, London until May 26, at New York’s Yancey Richardson Gallery until May 19, and M+B Gallery, LA until May 12.
