Quality Gets Harvested
Perhaps no one works harder at getting up in Los Angeles than You Killed Me First and There She Is. Each piece that hits the streets is immaculately hand painted.
Truly, each street piece is a work of art in its own right, so its no surprise that someone might want one. What is surprising, is how many get taken. It seems that nearly every time YKMF and There She Is get up on the streets, the pieces almost always get taken, not buffed.
Like here. These pieces were posted at this spot last month on M&F (YKMF HERE & There She Is HERE). However, at two separate times recently, people--or the same person, removed both pieces from the box. The pics below demonstrate that transition.
Since nearly every piece gets harvested, either there must be a lot of pieces from YKMF and There She Is riding on apartment walls in Hollywood, or someone must have a massive collection of art work.
But always dig the work of both artists, and their drive to keep getting up despite getting taken.
