In 1997 my friend Saber made what might be the most ambitious and spectacular graffiti piece in history on the concrete bank of the LA River. The piece was recently painted over as part of a faux environmental protection initiative, a superficial political move that does nothing to improve the environmental condition of the LA River, and in fact simply added MORE paint to its surface and wasted money. 12 years is a good run for a graff piece, but a piece of this quality should have been recognized for its artistic value and protected. There is an article about the removal of the piece on Saber’s site. Check it out.
