Last Thursday I had a chance to visit the opening of Art in the Streets at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the most comprehensive exhibit of street art pretty much ever. It was an amazing event with a ton of artists in attendance like Shepard Fairey, Futura, Steven Powers (ESPO), REAS, Fab Five Freddy and tons more. I honestly felt like a kid in a candy store as I walked through the space. I was surrounded by the work of the artists that I’ve admired for years now, and to be able to take the time and soak it in while no one else was really around was fantastic.

Enough talking though, it’s best to see the space for yourself through photos. Since I have so many photos though, I’m going to be breaking out certain artists into their own posts to present them in the correct manner. I ended up taking 559 photos, so trust me, I have a lot to share.

I should also point out that all the photos are pretty large, you just need to click them to see them larger. I hoep you like them all, and if you get the chance go see this show, it’s stunning.
