Bird on a Wire
Loooooooove it! This is how street art should be made. It should be inventive. It should have its very own style. It should be beyond original. It should make the viewer wonder "how the hell did he/she do that?". It should be beautiful. It should be ugly. It should make people happy and angry.
Maybe you have seen some of these urban birds around town lately. I saw this first one at Franklin and Hollywood, near where I work, and did a triple take. How is that up there? I pulled over and looked closer and saw that it seems to be attached to a little lock. That gives it the density needed to, I imagine, throw the bird up there and hope it wraps around the wire.
Then I started to see more around town as I was driving around. All at intersections. In the middle of the intersections which adds another degree of difficulty. They have been spotted at 3rd and Wilshire. I just saw one last night by Cobra and Matadors on Beverly.
Where else have any of you spotted them?
And WHO is the artist?
Johnny Cash "Bird on a Wire"
DJ Shadow "What Does Your Soul Look Like"
