5 Things You Need to be a Street Artist

The following list is a conglomeration of things you need in order to be a successful street artist. This list isn’t final, it isn’t official, and for many people it may not even be accurate. But hey, it’s fun to think about these things, right?

Lost in a city filled with people trying to find themselves. Lost in a city of Lust.

Presenting- Lost and Lust in LA.
