    when I was in LA, I was staying on Venice beach and checked the walls every morning after i got my orange juice. There was 2 or 3 new pieces every day.
    One morning I come out and it looked like someone smashed one of the walls with a sledge hammer or something.
    there was a crater 6 inches deep that was blasted away and you could see all the layers of paint that had been placed there over the years.
    It made me wonder just how everything had changed to create a layer of paint at least 6 inches deep. thats alot of fucking paint.
    and alot of pieces that people put heart into.

    thanks, and an invite


    Amazing. Wish I had a picture of that.

    Hey, glad you guys like my site. (and sorry ARCEL if it didn't work for you-- there are still some bugs in the Flash, we're working on it)

    I would like to keep going with this, expand it to other walls, go back further into history, even take it to other cities besides SF. But it's gotta start with someone who has the flix and knows the spots. If any of you have photos you'd like to contribute, send me an email. Want to start a local chapter? GRAFARC/LA? If you've got the flix, I will take care of the technical stuff and get you on our site.

    Peace,

    The Graffiti Archaeologist
