Bear graffiti *

This and other happy bears have been painted on walls in and near Echo Park. Are they guerrilla art or advertising? Lucinda Inganni spotted the smiley bear above near Riverside Drive and Fletcher and a trio on Glendale Boulevard at the end of the 2 Freeway.

* Update: The bears are the work of Phil Lumbang. He posted a comment that says he uses a brush and house paint to create the bears – not spray paint as mentioned in a previous version of this post.
