Postcard from LA: Street Art at La Brea-Beverly amongst chic fashions and Hasidic Jews

Graffiti and street art can be found in the Los Angeles neighborhood around the intersection of La Brea and Beverly Boulevard of expensive beauty salons and clothing boutiques amongst a community of Hasidic Jews.

Yesterday a gas station and car wash displayed a rumored Banksy work that has been covered up for years.  When I took a few photos with my phone camera, a worker told me, "Ten dollars for a photo." I laughed and he didn't push the point.

Another artwork reputedly by Banksy boarded up is proposed for an auction sale according to one consultant.

For your fun, here are a few photos of designs visible on September 6, 2012.
