OA in LA

OA in LA

‘OA’ stands for ‘Original Aboriginal’. I have used this term in my art in various ways: in lettering, neon and hand-drawn tags. OA comes from ‘OG’ – Original Gangster – a term used to represent someone who had achieved respect from doing what they did on the street or the neighbourhood for a long time. OG is also used in reference to mean something old-school and during the ‘80s and ‘90s it was referenced in hip hop, west-coast culture, graffiti and gang culture.
