It’s OK To Ask For Help

This week’s contribution comes from noted artist, and Greater and Grander contributor, Ricardo Tomasz.

Art adds unique color to our streets and beautifies our communities. That’s why Los Angeles District 4 councilmember, Nithya Raman, announced her groundbreaking Utility Box Art Program to improve Los Angeles neighborhoods while supporting local artists. This program sponsors local artists to turn blank utility boxes into stunning works of public art.

While the program has been put on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the program has recently reopened, and one of its first completed junction boxes, post-pandemic, is Greater & Grander’s own, Ricardo Tomasz.

Located at the intersection of Barham Blvd. and Lake Hollywood, Ricardo Tomasz has completed his work, “It’s OK To Ask For Help” which was inspired by noted street artist, Banksy.

It features a recreation of Tomasz’s Man In Black In Paint, as well as black clouds symbolizing depression. At the bottom of the junction box, all four sides, is text reading, “It’s OK to Ask For Help” and the phone number for the national suicide prevention hotline, 1-800-273-8255.
