FullSizeRender 33.jpgEver see graffiti on the street and wish you could take it home? Amber Goldhammer’s art allows you to take graffiti home. Her canvas are filled with graffiti style words and phrases in bold colors and in black and white. Looking at her work becomes almost a scavenger hunt where you are researching for words and faces through the overlaid color. One of her new series is “I Love You,” where the phrase repeats over and over again all over the canvas.

When trying to find parking at a museum, normally you don’t look for art in its parking garage. But at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, Kenny Scharf has created whimsical spray painted murals in its parking structure. Bright green, purple and blue futuristic looking characters sprawl across the walls encouraging you to park next to something that catches your eye.
