INSA Mural for LA Freewalls

UK artist and designer INSA took to downtown Los Angeles in a spray painting frenzy this month, giving the Artshare building in the heart of the Arts District a much-needed facelift. In a collaborative effort with LA Freewalls and Daniel Lahoda of Jet Set Graffiti, who supplied the material and equipment, the idealistic INSA had to raise his own fare for the flight and logistics by selling a dozen paper paintings online. This completed mural pays ode to the free enjoyment of public art, and commemorates the 12 buyers who have made it possible by having their names painted on the final LA wall.
