This Graffiti Artist Built A Tropical Oasis In The Middle Of Skid Row

To most Americans, homeless people can seem… invisible. That sentence might be tough to swallow, but it’s painfully true. They live in a world we’d rather not know about. One we willfully ignore. One we wish didn’t exist.

Enter Skid Robot. The L.A.-based graffiti artist is trying to make a difference on Skid Row — the epicenter of Los Angeles’s homeless community — by creating awareness around a very real problem. He uses spray paint, social media, and provocative artwork to shine a light on the 44,000 homeless sleeping in L.A. County on any given night. He is adding color to a gloomy forecast; a ray of sunlight in a sea of despair. He’s putting a face on a problem.
