More Tripping Through Venice Beach Art

Always encourage artists; for its how we get a glimpse of others realities.

After Tripping Through Venice Beach Art, its time for the sequel. Except a few older ones, all photos were shot in 2017 up until now, January 2018. What is new here is that I am adding the names of the artists as we should all do. The inspiration behind looking for the names came from having recently joined Instagram. This way I can tag the artists in the photos and share their creations with the world. Of course a bit of online effort was required — whether on Instagram, Facebook, or simply Google. But it is certainly all for the best.

I also happened to meet and photograph a few artists at work, like Jules Muck, Sandoner and Robert Vargas.

For those of you who are on Instagram and interested to catch up with me there, the hashtags I normally use are #venicebeachart #streetart #streetartphotography #omarcherifphotography. Others are #naturephotography and #wanderlust for the more nature-oriented, travel shots. As for the writing posts, #philosophy #philosophicalpoetry and #omarcherifwritings are the usual tags. 

You can actually now see the newly added IG widget here on One Lucky Soul — on the right side underneath the Facebook one — which displays the latest six posts. Not bad for connecting everything together.

One cool thing about the street art around Venice Beach is that it is constantly changing. So every once in a while I take the bike and camera and roam around to capture the novelty. Note that almost all of the following photos were shot around Venice except a few in the neighbouring Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey.

There is also the more international one World Art Through My Lens.

serve as healthy reminders.
