Earlier this summer I created this fun mural in association with LACCNP for Mayor Garcetti's VISION ZERO initiative. The City's goal is to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2025. I figured that creating a large mural aimed at the kids in the neighborhood would be best for the initiative in this particular location. The mural is located on the side of Sam's Market on the corner of Westlake and 6th St. The title is "Cuidado Niños Jugando" (Caution Children Playing). I hope people enjoy the mural and the message as they travel around the MacArthur Park area.
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!
Although painting in hot, humid, and thunderstorm conditions of up to 110 on the heat index is not one of my specialties, I was able to get a nice production done over a couple days last week while visiting Tulsa, Oklahoma. Thanks to @JakeBson (aka YoMoms) for teaming up with me and getting this wall for us!
Was a great time, looking forward to the next one. I might be willing to sell the final 8'x8' piece, so hit me up if interested. In the meantime, enjoy the pics!
