Downtown L.A. — Street Artist (Updated)

Sept. 3, 2013, Street Artist

I came across this street artist last evening while walking in downtown Los Angeles. He’s painting a street scene of the corner of Broadway and 7th Street.

Update: Ed Fuentes identifies our artist: “Alex Schaefer. And he has a show opening soon at District Gallery (3rd and Traction).”

Thanks, Ed!

Here’s a close-up of his work:

I didn’t want to interrupt him (he was already dealing with a sidewalk art critic) but I noticed that his shirt said thehivegallery.com.

As I said, the artist was already contending with a sidewalk art critic.

    I like the stucco-like texture. OK, technically it’s impasto.
