STREET SIGNS - War By Numbers

Ever since I came across Shepard Fairey's War By Numbers in 2008, I've coveted a print of the painting to hang on my wall. The innocent little girl captured in the piece reminds me of a character from a children's book, although in Fairey's world, the rose she's stopping to smell stems from a grenade and war bombers loom over her head. Each time I pass the print of it posted on an electrical box in front of Michelangelo Ristorante at 2742 Rowena Avenue in Silver Lake, I can't help but smile because I love getting to see it all the time.
