A graffiti artist from Los Angeles has started incorporating the homeless from Skid Row into his pieces. The artist, Skid Robot, works solo or with his partners to spray paint backdrops behind some of the homeless in the area. Most of the graffiti depicts wants like money or technology, but some portray them in comfortable rooms. That’s something these people do not have nor have access to. Skid Robot always asks for permission if the person is around, and he will leave them with some money and even a care package. His care packages have food and toiletries for each person. While his art is vandalism, his hope is to open the eyes of the public to the homeless. Anyone can follow his Instagram to see what his latest pieces are.
