LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A guerrilla street artist is paying tribute to Nelson Mandela by recruiting volunteers to place posters of the late South African leader around Los Angeles.
As KNX1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports, most of Robbie Conal’s work is satirical. But the Mandela posters, he says, are celebratory.
“We are all incredibly grateful for Mandela’s life, and we’re not going to cry about it,” he said.
On Friday night, Conal and volunteers, whom he calls art vandals, gathered for an “Art Attack”, following news Mandela had passed away this week at the age of 95.
