Lonesome Town's work has become a source of delight and debate for locals. Walking their dogs, residents of Koreatown and Silver Lake scour cross-streets for televisions and stools, gas cans and paint spills — inspecting otherwise overlooked items in a delightful urban treasure hunt.

“There’s something beautifully tragic about it,” says M., the anonymous artist behind Lonesome Town. “There’s no consequence to this thing you loved being pushed outside and forgotten.”
