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).”

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