MAN ONE X ESTRELLA JALISCO X THRILLIST

This summer I had the opportunity to create a wonderful mural to honor my lovely parents. Something I've been wanting to do for a while now. It is definitely one of my highlights of the year so far.  Thanks to Estrella Jalisco and Thrillist for sponsoring this project and documenting it in such a great way. Check out the video, in depth interview, and pics below.

MY FIRST METAL SCULPTURE!

Last year I was asked by my friend and art collector, Jan, if I would create a metal sculpture for her home. I immediately said YES!  Mind you, I've never created any sculpture of this kind before. I also don't know anything about metal fabrication or welding, but why should I let something like that stop me! As an artist it's always exciting to learn new things and push yourself into uncomfortable territories. Sometimes you need to stretch yourself to grow. Here's my journey in pics.

NEW MURAL @ ARTS DISTRICT PARK

Very happy to announce that you can now view my mural at the new Arts District Park located at the corner of 5th and Hewitt!

The mural titled "Graffiti Spirit of L.A. Renaissance" depicts my version of a modern Quetzalcoatl & god of the arts. It's hands on the tools that created the Arts District (brushes & spray cans) it's wings and halo represent the City of Angels and how it's currently balancing all of it's weight on one hand. Underneath the spirit is the landscape of the Arts District and it's future with a nod to the new 6th street bridge to be erected soon.

Big thanks to ArtshareLA and Councilman Huizar for making this happen.

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!
