Ricky Guerrero on Keeping Graffiti Legal

By Helena Liikanen-Renger

Ricky Guerrero believes taggers are artists. In 2006, he founded Graff Lab in the Pico-Union district near Downtown LA, which gives taggers a safe, legal place to paint and teaches them everything from artistic techniques to the business side of art. Guerrero says the neighborhood is contested space as are the futures of the kids in the neighborhood.
