we don't look enough to street art, it can be so beautiful, but we have to look at it. I am so into camp, so the doggy is my absolute favorite, it is hilarious. sometimes (contemporary) art can be too hard to understand, so i love funny easy art. and as i said i love camp, Koons is one of my favorite, really want to have a dog like that in my garden.

I am so insanely jealous that i'm not in LA to go to the exhibition.
I would give anything to go.
How long is it on for?

I love that piece by Shepard Fairey. My cousin got some of his stickers the other day online and i intend to steal many to slap up around my office.
