stevenlarson The Venice Beach Drum Circle, an area in Venice that never skips a beat. Every Sat & Sun they are out there.
Because I have lived in Venice Beach California for over 15 years I have decided to start an Instagram feed solely on this area. There is so much going on, and I have so many images I want to share. You can follow along @depictingvenice

depictingvenice "Venice Beach" Mural by Rip Cronk

To me this is the most iconic mural in Venice. Cronk painted a trompe-l'œil mural which is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create an optical illusion/ forced perspective of the artist Rip Cronk defacing the building mural by graffiti tagging it with "VENICE". Note also the perspective of the face of the building in the mural. Sadly they removed the Beach House sign years ago because it caught on fire. This work of art was done in 1990.

depictingvenice Looks like they were shooting a #Polaroid commercial in Venice today (7/11/14). I know in 2001 Polaroid had some troubles, and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Though in 2008 they reorganize, 2012 they introduce their 'smart camera'. So here is hoping they continue to strive! 3w

depictingvenice These historic walls were originally part of the Venice Pavilion that was built in 1961. The specific area where these walls are located was called "The Pit" or the "Graffiti Pit". During this period the walls were often painted with graffiti style murals. It was technically illegal to paint the walls then, but was generally tolerated by the police and was loved by the community. In 1999, the Pavilion was torn down but a portion of the walls were preserved as a living memorial to the high quality artwork that had been painted on the walls for over twenty-five years.

In 2000, it became legal to paint the walls and the area was renamed the Venice Graffiti Walls. In 2007, the walls were renamed the Venice Public Art Walls or the Venice Art Walls for short.
