Street Artist ‘Eine’ Paints the LA Weekly

Street artist Eine is in LA for MOCA’s big (and controversial) “Art in the Streets”exhibit and decided to do some free decorating on the LA Weekly‘s Culver City headquarters. Eine spoke with LA Weekly‘s Shelley Leopold (who made a brief appearance in the Banksy film “Exit Through the Gift Shop”) about his concept for the building.

A lot of what I paint on the street, it has to fit and it has to suit the space that I’m painting on. So, the windows, the grids, the fact it’s a newspaper, I just thought, “Yeah, graffiti crossword.” It made sense. If the windows weren’t there, I would have just done a big word or big letters, but the windows…The shape and the size of the building eliminates certain options. But Graffiti Crossword‘s kinda cool, yeah?
