Ukraine based artist KLONE made his mark on The Roxy’s West-facing wall recently and we have the time-lapse video to prove it.
From his birth in USSR to travels in Israel, KLONE’s work focuses on memories he has created or collected from others throughout his life experience. He learns “a new language that invents itself along the way.”

Artist of the Week: Annie Preece
Annie Preece has been making her mark on Los Angeles for quite some time, but as of late, she is the buzzing left and right amongst the street art community. She began in San Francisco creating her own artwork and was noted as one of the very few female graffiti artists. Her graffiti background continues to influence her paintings. Preece has worked with Project Canvas and holds art shows as much as possible. You can see her work at the upcoming Street Preachers show at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts on September 6 that also features prominent LA female street artists.
Roxy Melrose & Fairfax Street Art of the Week: Mr. Brainwash
Mr. Brainwash is excited to announce his biggest and most ambitious exhibition to date entitled Art Show 2011. Not only is Mr. Brainwash putting on an art show, he is inviting any and all artists to come and participate in the event as a community art project.
Since M&F is the voice of LA’s street art community, Mr. Brainwash extended a special offer to the followers and supporters of the blog by offering an exclusive first chance to put art on the walls this past Sunday. There was a huge turnout opening day with everything from 5-year olds to 60 year old grandmothers, and first time artists to seasoned street art veterans. Here is a sampling of the great shots and amazing stories we captured from first day of Mr. Brainwash’s ‘Art Show 2011’.
Roxy Melrose & Fairfax Street Artist of the Week:
Free Humanity is one of LA’s most prolific street artists. He recently caused a stir in Los Angeles when a piece of his—an apple with a grenade stem, shut down the 5 freeway and triggered the LAPD bomb squad to come out and ‘diffuse’ it. It was a big deal and was covered by all the major news outlets. Well, Free Humanity just released a new video that gives a sneak peak into the mysterious and alluring world of street art from the print, to the painting, to the street application. The video is entitled ‘Because I Love You.’
The Roxy Melrose & Fairfax Street Artist of the Week:
Hide your children. Lock up your wife. Lush is in town. ‘Lush’ rings out as one of the biggest names in the graffiti world. From painting naked girls on the wall, to painting actual naked girls, to bitingly clever pieces, Lush has been taking Los Angeles by storm. Lush has been called the ‘Banksy of graffiti’, and he even had a tag of his covered up with plexiglass next to a Banksy piece here in Los Angeles. If you want to see more from Lush, make sure to check out his are show ‘Lush Sells Out In LA’ this Friday at the Hold Up Gallery. This will be an art show unlike any other.There is supposed to be some amazing art, live strippers, an appearance from Shaq, and a whole lot of insanity! Watch out— Lush is in Los Angeles.
