Need to know about the rising epidemic of Street Art? Try Los Angeles based Vapors Magazine
While I was in Los Angeles, I discovered a brilliant magazine, Vapors Magazine. It's one of the most visually stimulating magazines I have ever come across. It is only sold in Los Angeles (and even hard to find there!), but they post the entire mag online every month.
As a lot of you might know, street art is a trend that is on the rise. With names like Banksy and Shepard Fairey, it is becoming more and more mainstream. You may have seen Obey stickers, posters, & murals plastered through your local streets. An Obey exhibit can even currently be seen at the Warhol Museum for those of you who are from Pittsburgh.
This magazine, however, offers you insight from the people who started this trend. The clothes they wear, the music they love. From the city that really started it all. It's always important to stay real. This magazine has featured interviews with the nebulous Banksy. If you don't know, English guerrilla street artist, "Banksy" has never revealed who he is to the public. So you know that if this magazine was scoring interviews with him, these are the people who know the trends before anyone else.
Be sure to check out Vapors Magazine.
