Was nice to work with @myfinbec again doing this live painting in Geneva over the weekend. Was a hectic schedule having flown NY-Frankfurt-Geneva then painted right until I had to leave to fly Geneva-Reykjavík-NY. Had a few hours to rest and now en route to Canada for @seawalls_ 🤣.

All good things come to an end - thank you @oiyoustreetart & @taurangaartgallery for the incredible opportunity, I'm so immensely proud to see a show like this in a New Zealand public art gallery let alone see that it had such a huge response. Thanks @madi.randall for being a great person to paint, thanks @louie.rooks for all the help & thanks @janijamani for this photo.
So inspired after seeing the Villeglé show today I went scavenging for material in Geneva. It's a pretty tidy city but still found some gold. Fragments of posters for protests & a feminist manifesto amongst this pile. Going to start making some much smaller pieces while I'm on the road.
Help me, I'm meeeellting!! When everyone thinks European paint is awesome but it lols 😂😂😂 - a long time ago with an NZ legend.
I just described this piece to a friend as a Semi-Diamondism tag with simple letter (abstracted) with throw up elements 🤷🏻♂️. Not bad for about 4 hours painting in yesterday's incredible weather! I could go way further with this and it might take a few to get the rhythm but painting quickly really helped me be decisive and forced me to land more/accept some of the imperfections. Thanks @indeliblefunk @18ism & @modernclassic for a good day!
I've got so much more to say about my experience at @seawalls_ Churchill over the past week than Instagram will let me post in the caption. Just want to say a huge thanks to all the team, the artists and people of Churchill that helped me push through against what felt like insurmountable hurdles this week in getting paint on every part of this wall 😄 - thank you, will never forget this experience!
A very productive day at @seawalls_ Churchill ✨✨✨✨✨✨ almost everything's blocked in & started to work some of the environmental textures over top!
Today's progress at @seawalls_ Churchill. Feel good about today but flat on my back right now feeling old 😄
Gotta give some love to these absolute champions - @crackedink @artworkofkai & the legend that is Dennis for holding it down for everyone here at @seawalls_ Churchill. Hugely productive day today thanks to a lot of help!
Started blocking in today - feeling it right now after a day in full sun and improvising a bit with the access situation. Given that the railway is closed and Churchill is cut off from easy supply, the 3 additional lifts booked couldn't make it. In that scenario I'm sure there's some Prima-donna's that would've definitely struggled but instead everyone is sharing and the incredible team are rotating equipment from wall to wall. With events like @seawalls_ where everyone's here donating their time to promote positive messages it's great to see everyone be resourceful and unafraid to work a little harder!
The very beginning stages of this epic wall at @seawalls_ in Churchill. Stoked to share this building with the incredible @case_maclaim ✨✨✨✨

Pretty awesome to see @mmeredith27 recognised amongst the Queens birthday honours list this year. I'm almost certain he won't like all the fuss & attention but I just wanted to say that this guy is a real genuine hero. I'm so blown away by how much energy he puts into giving to others through his stem nights & Eat My Lunch which provides school lunches for children in need. An absolute master at what he does but also someone that has used his talent & platform to do something so immensely positive. This is something I really aspire to as well! Congrats on the recognition bro although I'm sure that's never been the motivation 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
My dad, step mum, her cousin & partner made it to @taurangaartgallery yesterday to catch
