LA Graffiti

LA is a hotbed of street art, and where a blank wall sits, an artist somewhere dreams. Cannabis jibes with graffiti and all types of artists because of its power to increase inspiration and creative energy—OLO has harnessed that power into a fast-acting sublingual strip that can not only fuel the artist, but the viewer as well. 

 

Los Angeles is really a wonderland, and with all of the legal cannabis, it’s become a true destination for culture lovers. Graffiti is a form of art that cannabis has always been adjacent to, owed to their mutual underground bravado—pushing through what used to be lawless, but is now accepted and celebrated. 

Whether you’re visiting, new in town, or just taking advantage of your home turf, try toting an OLO Quartet with your squad and squeezing in some street art viewing amongst your shopping, dining, or hiking and get a little more intimate with the graffiti in the City of Angels. 

Shepard Fairey’s Maya Angelou

Slauson Ave is home to some amazing food, like Simply Wholesome and Grilled Fraiche, but just off San Pedro Street is the most recent mural by artist of Obey Giant fame, Shepard Fairey. Fairey used a stunning 40+ gallons of paint and over one thousand cans to complete a joyful, stylistic image of Maya Angelou from a 1969 Chester Higgins photo. According to Hyperallergic.com, this is the largest mural at the Maya Angelou Mural Festival held at Maya Angelou Community High School, which also featured the work of Add Fuel, 1010, and Axel Void. 

Take in the beauty and urgency of these murals representing the student body, political struggle, and Angelou herself with a 5mg CHILL sublingual to cultivate a reverent and open-minded vibe as you tour, maybe after eating a soul food platter at Simply. 

Space Invader

The last wave of ‘invasion’ from the famous French urban artist, Franck Slama, was just this past November, and like many other installations he’s done, the pieces are still around. Open up a strip of 10mg ACTIVE and get your hunting cap on, because sometimes Invader’s work can blend in almost too well. The burst of energy will allow you to spot mosaics that you can find on the free Flash Invaders app that the artist created, a Pokémon-esque live game, perfect for an active high. Up the ante and play the game with friends while sharing 5mg SOCIAL strips.

Votan Henriquez

Downtown is Los Angeles’ most urban pocket, and Venice native and member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, Votan Henriquez, is a well known public artist with a presence there. Try incorporating an OLO 5mg FOCUS while you tour the area’s shopping, art, fashion, and pocket of murals. Visit Downtown’s Indian Alley to see one of Henriquez’s pieces called “Chief Plenty Coups.” It tells an important story of his heritage and of the Indigenous communities who lived here before, as well as the ones who live here now. 

 

There’s dozens more LA urban art offerings and countless ways to combine them with an OLO experience. Consume both art and OLO with care—you will want to enjoy Los Angeles’ unique culture with intention—what you’ll receive is endless inspiration.
