AT&T Telephone Box Art

Today, at the end of my street, I noticed something I’ve never seen before: artists at work painting one of those giant telephone boxes in broad daylight. I stopped to take some pictures and talk to the artist, Carlos.

Carlos is part of a small group of people that have been hired by the city and AT&T to beautify those great gray behemoths, and to prevent them from being covered in graffiti. After the painting is done, the entire box is covered with an anti-graffiti coating. Carlos and his crew have painted boxes in several Los Angeles neighborhoods. The one pictured above is part of a series of about four or five that will feature Southern California’s wildlife.
