"Behind The Wall: The Battle for LA's Murals" by Oliver Riley-Smith

The meshing of new school and old school is never an easy process. That is a fact of life and can be applied to any process or situation out there. The world of street art is no exception as mural artists from the old school try to coexist with the graffiti artists of the new school.
Beautiful hand painted murals in the city of Los Angeles are lost when they are marked by graffiti. Once tagged, the work is considered vandalized and is covered up by the city. Veteran painter Ernesto De La Loza and graffiti artist Ghost One sound off on this issue in "Behind The Wall: The Battle for LA's Murals". Check out the 6-minute clip after the jump!
