Virgin of Nino's Meat Market, Avalon & 51st Street, Los Angeles
Another in my attempt to chronicle the many Virgins of Guadalupes on Los Angeles walls.
The more I do it, the more I’m struck by the way the street of south LA and of Pico-Union, Hollywood and other neighborhoods make up what amounts to a massive open-air modern art museum.
It’s an interesting time. Who knows? In 10 years, a planning-commission-like conformity may have come to these areas. But for now they’re a jangle of images, much of related to commerce, yet the overall effect is riotous color.
