STREET ART MURAL TOUR FOR FOCA MEMBERS

Yesterday I led another one of my street art mural tours in L.A. I had the pleasure of showing the murals and art of our wonderful city to a nice sized group from FOCA. We walked around the alley projects near Gabba Gallery and ended in the Arts District at the Container Yard. I love the excitement in people's eyes when they experience something they've never seen before!

HUE MURAL FESTIVAL IN HOUSTON

I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this year's HUE MURAL FESTIVAL in Houston, Texas which took place in the middle of October.  Over 100 international and local artists created over 80 new and unique murals. It was such a great time and experience to connect and re-connect with old friends and new ones.

Title: "Reaching for the Tip Top"
Location: 2801 Polk St, Houston, TX 77003

Here's a time lapse video of the wall I painted entitled 

Some final pics of the wall as well as in progress shots...

Special thanks to Gonzo247 and Carolyn for organizing such a great event! Big ups to my trusty assistant Logan, Frankel's Costume Shop for giving up your walls, the Holiday Inn for hooking up the rooms and all who had something to do with HUE MURAL FESTIVAL 2016!

THANK YOU!!

BREEDERS CUP

Crewest Studio has partnered up with the Breeders Cup this year and I am one of the 5 lucky L.A. artists who is turning a life size fiberglass thoroughbred into a piece of public art!

My horse titled "PONY UP" was on display at Pershing Square (in DTLA) during most of the month of October.   It will now be on view at Santa Anita Racetrack to celebrate the Breeders Cup starting this Friday Nov.4th and 5th.

 

The other four Crewest artists included in this campaign are: Yolanda Gonzalez, Andre Miripolsky, Michael Massenburg, and Clinton Bopp. Check out this cool little video that the Breeders Cup put together:

 

See you at the races!

LIVE PAINTING: LA TOCADA FESTIVAL

Got to do some live art during La Tocada Festival, a latino rock music festival which took place in an indoor/outdoor Santa Ana venue called The Observatory.

Admittedly, I got a little political on this one. I don't usually like telling people who to vote for but in this case I will tell them who not to vote for!!
