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
Kodak Moments: Bill and I were getting paint one night and this kid and his mom were in line ahead of us. I noticed his tattoo and it tore me to shreds. I told the mom I was collecting pictures of tattoos for a project I was working on. I had to have some line to get the photo. The kid was 13. I didn’t ask how his Dad died. Didn’t want to make things worse.
One from way back in 2001 titled "Casual Destruction". Owned by my man Justin @closedcasketactivities. Today he brought it into @jack_somebody for expert framing. In this piece is my father in Vietnam, my uncle in his winter hat and gloves on Kenwood ave, and William Casby. The girl jumping rope and boy with ore were random images from the first stencils I ever cut in 1998. Thank you gentlemen from shedding some light on this old piece.
Prints available! Hot off the @pepperspraypress ! My man @scoutpines re-birthed an old design I worked on many moons ago. We originally printed them on Postal stickers circa 2001 when we worked in Chatham at EVR. "Beat Street is a lesson too, cause you can't let the streets beat you, ungh!"
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.
