Epic street art from Plastic Jesus, the ‘Banksy of LA’

If you can’t make it to an art gallery, the art gallery will come to you. Thanks to Los Angeles-based street artist Plastic Jesus, the streets of LA have become an artistic playground. Described as ‘The Banksy of LA’, Plastic Jesus’ work shines ‘a small light into some of those dark corners of society then stands back to watch reactions and opinions’.

Some of the work includes the ‘Best Buy Useless Plastic Box 1.2′ (that was actually installed in a Best Buy store), ‘Credit Trap‘ and ‘R.I.P. 11,428‘ which speaks strongly about gun violence in America.
