Hey thanks, I found the guy

Which, there’s plenty more where that came from.

About a month and a half ago, right after the DTLA art walk in September, I was kicking myself.

I had come across this item in the alley behind the Avenue des Arts Gallery and I was having trouble getting the name of the artist. Crowdsourcing didn’t even help.

Whatever though. I went back to the scene right after Clara Berta’s show and picked up on something I should have seen the first time: the artist wants me to know who he is.

Mind blown. The piece is called “The Freedom Move” and the artist is Bust the Drip, “a pseudonymous French artist and hip-hop dancer whose work is inspired by Jackson Pollock’s drip technique!” Here he is next to his handiwork.

Which, there’s plenty more where that came from.

He uses a similar color palette for most of them. I love how electric this technique looks! The artwork actually appears to sizzle!
