An anonymous street artist who goes by the moniker Skid Robot has been helping shine a light on the issue of homelessness in Los Angeles. His artwork often creates a visual representation for the dreams and hopes of the homeless people he meets out on Skid Row. Other times the artwork is of a beautiful background -- a throne, a serene landscape -- that forces the viewer to confront the disparity in what is depicted and the reality of everyday life on the streets.
Skid Robot is currently raising funds to produce a film that will give a voice to the homeless community of Skid Row. With this film, Robot hopes "to inspire a revolution of compassion for your fellow human being." He continues, "We can no longer neglect the global humanitarian crisis of homelessness and must bring the dialogue to the forefront of public discussion and find a solution to this crisis."
