And – we’re pleased to be able to share some of the praise for the project from media outlets around the country:
I did an interview with old homie Finok for the November 2013 issue of Juxtapoz. He has a big show in Sao Paulo this month, but he’s also been one of the most up writers in the megacity for a decade.
Here’s Me/Ise/Finok in Seville, Spain a few years ago…
Here’s an old B&M boxcar I painted (on all four sides) a couple of weeks in central Massachusetts back at its resting place in the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum – a little something for my sis.
As you may have noticed, I’ve gotten into painting dots over the past couple of years. The idea sprung from me wanting to have the most fun possible while I paint. I hit on the dots because they occupy a happy place in the process aspect of graffiti: you’re out painting with friends and you’re basically finished and are waiting for your slowpoke buddy to wrap up. You’re feeling good and your piece came out looking hot. As you sit around, happily exhausted with your other buddies, you take a few of your rattler scrap cans and do a few basically gratuitous dots and bubbles in and around your piece to floss it up and make it sparkle. It’s a really nice feeling.
So a while ago I decided I’d just try to pull that one good feeling out make it the whole thing. Just dots. See where it goes. It’s actually a lot more work to cover, say, a boxcar, with dots than it is to do a piece on one, but I think that’s kind of the humor in it all. The first action – a dot – is the same as the last action – also a dot. That’s it.
I was excited recently to partner with Converse to create a Chuck Taylor covered in dots. You can check those out here and order yourself a pair if you so desire.
A new 70″ x 90″ painting of mine. I believe it may be about fatherhood.
A very nice – and large – new book has just been released, called The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti, by Rafael Schacter. I’m pleased to be one of the featured artists.
The current issue of Juxtapoz has a feature interview I did with Norwegian artist Oivin Horvei.
A little (not that little) work-in-almost-finished. Each of these letters of the nautical flag alphabet is painted on a 14″ square wood panel and resin-finished. Here’s a shot of one of the single letters. I’ll leave ‘em here until I find the place I want to show them.
This past weekend was the Welling Court mural thing in Queens, and my buddy Katie Yamasaki and I did our annual thing.
Monday’s cool surprise was a mural of mine making a little cameo in this nice new Viva Viva video.
