A World Going On Underground

The last week has brought an absolute explosion of new street art at the Underground Events Center. Incredible new pieces appeared from some of the West Coast's finest writers including Aerub, Huemr, and the legendary Veks. But the crowning glory has got to be this new 100 foot long, 20 foot high mural by Sean Barton. The entire north wall of the Underground parking lot now features a 2-story-tall gorilla bashing the words "Welcome to Belltown" out of the brick. Barton dedicated his huge piece to his mentor, renowned Los Angeles muralist Dennis Bezanis, "The King of Convex," who passed away in April this year. Many more photos here.
