Puppeteers in Flight - Phantom Galleries L.A.

You are walking along and you think you see something but you are pressed for time.

Or you are standing waiting for the bus and there is something out of the ordinary, a shift you can't put your finger on but it is present.

In certain cities in Los Angeles there are Phantom Galleries where there use to be retail stores. Until they are rented they act as silent art galleries for many of the local artists.

This is a short video of one that I encountered a while back. The artist is Farad Kohan and to see more of his work visit

For more information about the Phantom Galleries Los Angeles visit

P.S. Thanks for the encouragement and offers of psychic chocolate. I think I did ok on the final and I kept my chocolate consumption to no more than three pieces. All I can tell you is be nice to your local librarian. They work darn hard so you don't have too.


  1. Hi. I really like your blog. I just started building mine,

    Would you like to trade links? I encourage you to read "Make It Real" and "Prophecy Song."

    I had no idea about Phantom Galleries, but I will make sure to keep my eyes open when I'm down in LA. I will ask around in SF about them.
