Friday, May 9, 2008 Gangsta Art Details

There is another Hollywood, and it's not for tourists. It's the world of the disaffected and angry young, the minorities in all senses trapped in the land of hype and self-satisfied excess.  They know everyone thinks they shouldn't be here.  But they are here, and they let you know that.  The murals are everywhere, and every surface, sooner or later, is tagged. It's all just a reminder.  Don't forget, for even a moment, that they are here.

A new mural on the northwest corner of Gower and Warning, across the street from the massive Paramount Studios and back lots this is the other world.
