I do not know the artist on all these pieces, but this one is by Alec (also included in part 1). It can be found on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles.

Alec (from New York):

Growing up in NYC I was immensely influence by graffiti 
in the streets. It wasn’t until later in grade school that I started writing my name in public places. Art for me is so much realer in the streets


There are lot of street art inspired by Dylan, mostly quotes from his songs, but there are also some very striking works depicting Bob Dylan.

The Creators Project: Last we spoke, you were working with sound recordings of famous people’s lives, now your dabbling in album releases of the legends! Tell us about it.
DJ Manero: The new project is still audio, but now with the legend Bob Dylan. We teamed up with Bob to promote his album Tempest around the world, using our new app called Sound Graffiti.

How does the app work?
The app is location-based. People are able to go to iconic points around the world and unlock more and more content.

What was the significance of the locations?
A few are locations relevant to some of Bob’s album art. Like Jones Street in New York, from the Free Wheelin’ album cover, around the corner from his studio at 161 West 4th Street. Other locations were where he had performed and the rest are locations where music or art is an attraction. We wanted to tag local mom-and-pop and indie record stores to drive traffic to some original music retailers.

The famous heart of  Banglatown in East London, the street called ‘Brick Lane’ was immortalized in Monica Ali’s novel of the same name (and to a lesser extent by the uneven film adaptation).

The street lately has manifested a cultural identity beyond being a mostly Bengali populated avenue with great curry houses. There’s now apparently a thriving street art scene.

From the artist GUN (a person I know nothing about), notice Tesco and Sainsbury bags blowing in the wind (pun intended by me and the artist GUN):

Here are some examples of fine stencil art, but sadly with no signature:

Finally a ruined work, tainted by someone who thinks Dylan is boring, what a stupid person 😉
