It was a good weekend. @arborism @scoutpines @518prints Thank you.
Out To Live was started a little over 30 years ago by REK in East Baltimore. This past weekend @arborism and I put in some work @518prints. Special thanks to Jesse ,Mel, and the 518 crew. And to Justin @closedcasketactivities for the bringing the Vegan steak subs!
In honor of the men and women who helped construct, maintain, and rebuild the WTC in NYC. In honor of those who lost their lives and who survived. Last night @joeiurato and I created "The Rising" at 4 WTC. Special thanks to Doug and Sophia @worldtradegallery and @joshuabgeyer for capturing it all. Also a very special thanks to my good friends @loganhicksny @matzarob @joeiurato for sharing the evening and creating lasting memories.
This year I was honored to participate @coneyislandartwalls in Brooklyn. Working from a photo by the always inspiring @marthacoopergram and with help from Capn Chesapeake we completed the wall in three days. It opens this Saturday May 20 at noon and goes till 6. Stop by, say hi, grab some fries ..."and you know I can't live without my radio!" Detail of a photo taken by @captainsunnshine
In the early 90's I experimented with words and images. Inspired by VOKE, MODE, and the Baltimore poet and MICA teacher Joe Cardarelli. As Bill reminded me recently, "There are no rules" when it comes to graffiti. I recently decided to revisit that style with this piece,"The Second Arrow."
The Get Down drops today on Netflix. For the past year myself and other members of local 829 United Scenic Artist Union worked in earnest to replicate the styles and atmosphere of mid to late 70's NYC to help tell the story of those times. It was a pleasure to have worked with @ladypinknyc @crashone @dazeworldnyc @the_curvazoid @arborism as well.
