Anonymous Los Angeles street artist Skid Robot wants to “ignite a global revolution of compassion.” The artist brings attention to the issues of homelessness by making Skid Row his canvas and its inhabitants his muses. Best known for his graffiti, Skid Robot gives food, money, and toiletries to homeless people on Skid Row and then includes them in paintings done around their makeshift homes.
