What you'll do

We kick off on Abbot Kinney which has seen an explosion of street art in the last five years, on top of the art we dip into the history of Venice and Abbot Kinney himself. After an hour, it's the back streets to the beach uncovering some hidden gems and some classic murals rolling back the decades. The tour includes artists from Portugal, USA, Ireland, Italy, Germany, UK, France, Netherlands, South Africa, Argentina & more. We will see sculptures, stencils, murals from portraiture, typography and plenty of graffiti - we discuss each piece of work as we go, the artist and the style. In between it's up to you to make the tour, past topics include issues the community faces, from internal fall outs, corporate commissions, gentrification of the area, finding wall space, you name it.

Beyond Abbot Kinney, we pass Venice skate park, Muscle Beach, the Venice sign and the beach - where skateboarding was born, finishing up at the Graffiti Walls.
Other things to note
The tour covers around 2 miles and takes between 90 mins - 2 hours depending on the group. Our previous guests have been all ages.

After a career in corporate finance, I decided to up my London sticks and move to LA, where I was sponsored by a gallery on an expert arts visa.

I first came across street art in East London and my travels across Australia, Europe & Asia quickly connected me to global network artists, gallery owners, photographers and curators.

My experience has seen me facilitate everything from bloc parties, to mural festivals, numerous non-profit art projects and work with a number of charities via my art world.

I have lived in Venice for over 3 years and have deep ties to the neighborhood, so figured it was time to bring art to the people.

Great experience and tour of Venice and its street art. Lots of great stops and stories along the way, and learned a bit about Venice as we went. Definitely recommend if you're looking for something in Venice.

Having lived in LA for a few years, I’ve passed by the murals in abbot Kinney and Venice many times. It’s great to get the stories behind them from a real expert and someone who is so passionate about the subject. I think it is the beauty of airbnb experiences. My friend visiting also enjoyed it.

I organized this tour for my friend who loves street art for a group of 8 women. We had people on the tour who personally owned a lot of art down to people that know nothing about street art. Dan was incredibly responsive and organized. He tailored the tour to exactly what we needed, down to sending me a menu ahead of time of a place we could stop for a quick bite. He had great explanations for each piece, how it was created, insights about the artist and how it is relevant to the street art world. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. It was a great way for a bunch of women from the area to explore parts of the city we normally would not.

The tour was really great! We learned a lot about all the art pieces, even somethings that you couldn’t look up on the internet. Dan has a really great way of showing and telling about the art, and even though he talks a little fast, we understood everything he said. His passion for the street art community is big and that shows. His passion also makes the tour better and more interesting and exiting. You could tell that he had researched Venice’s history which was really interesting to hear about. Definitely a BIG thumbs up to Dan. Him and his tour is definitely worth the money and time. We left there with great knowledge and a new perpective on how the street art community is and works.

Absolutely loved the tour with Dan! Even as a Venice local, Dan shared stories and information about the art and area that I had no clue about! He's very friendly and well informed. I would absolutely recommend this experience to others!
