LIVE ART AT FOLAR FANDANGO

As many of you know, I've been a longtime supporter of the Friends of the LA River.  This coming weekend they are hosting their big gala, FANDANGO.

I will be there painting an 8'x8' live mural that will be sold off in 64 individual panels!  I will also have other available art up for auction.

Below is the flyer and a link for more info if you're interested in attending or simply supporting the great work that they do for our LA River.

I leave you with my quick tag video that we've been using on social media.

GRAFFITI ON ZIPCAR

Hitting the #BullseyeU @zipcaru @target @ford #focus #streetart #graffiti #art #livepainting
This week I was commissioned by Zipcar.com to paint one of their cars at a huge Target event they were sponsoring for a day over by UCLA.

Untitled
Bullseye University was a real time, live streaming show that had top Youtubers living in dorm rooms for the week.

Every room on the "set" was furnished with Target's products and could be purchased directly via the live stream by just clicking on the product. Pretty intense marketing strategy and quite the production.

Untitled
I spent the whole day painting the car with washable paints and markers. People from all over the world got to tune in and see me paint the Ford Focus live as well as some short interviews which allowed me to tell my story as an artist, accomplishments, and insights to my art.

All and all it was a great time and good exposure for my art! Click below for more pics from that day.

LIVE PAINTING AT FUNKAPALOOZA





My art band UNIFICATION THEORY (myself, Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca, and Overton Loyd) painted LIVE on stage with headliners George Clinton and PFUNK at the FUNKAPALOOZA Concert at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA last Friday nite 3/23/12.





As usual we created live, spontaneous, mash up works of art with markers, spray cans, and inks. The pieces are created to the music as its being performed and its what moves us.






Then of course we gave away the pieces to lucky fans that were in attendance at the sold out show.






I never thought giving away the art during the concert would stir up such a crazy frenzy that literally had security holding people back from jumping on stage to get their hands on some art!






Sir Nose in the house!



Thanks to Overton and George Clinton for letting us do this again! 
Special shout out to the homie Baz for clicking away on my iPhone to get all these action pics!



Was a great nite of art and FUNK!

GAP: KIDS EVENTS

The GAP store (on Robertson in Beverly Hills) recently asked me to do a couple live painting events for them.

It may not be the usual type of live painting event I am used to doing, but what the hell (I mean heck), I'll do anything for the childrenz!

They are the future of the world, so why not expose them to some graff stylez!
