FIELD NOTE: This strong hand-painted wheat-paste of Edgar Allan Poe with the quote “I do not suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it,” is in the Arts District. The street artist shared the Los Angeles to Las Vegas migration pattern of the mystery person behind the series “You Killed Me First.” That’s no surprise. They shared space in Los Angeles, including wheat-paste heavy Melrose Avenue. “The way that these two share their love of street art together is a beautiful thing. Each paints completely different yet colorful and complimentary hand painted pieces. Each artist has a style of their own, still the pieces always look great together,” wrote Melrose and Fairfax in 2013.
