Waiting on the final photos from the project in Delhi so here are some teasers while we're patient. Such an incredible project, the community, the organizers and everyone who stopped by, thank you for making this one so special. All thanks to @startindia and @canadainindia for making this project happen.
Made it to India guys! Deep in the sketch with a brain of mush zeroing in on those dots and strokes to find the lines. Out here with the great people of @startindia and the Canadian Embassy. Oh and the coolest kids hanging at the wall each day.
Working on some new projects so here is something from the past. Still one of my favorite shots of my work by incredible photographers @smwhitesnow . With @urbannationberlin and @artmossphere for the first urban art Biennale in Moscow
Was recently in Amsterdamn where I painted this giant canvas for their soon to be Street Art museum. Here is a detail of the 30x17' canvas. Thanks to @droos86 and @peterernstcoolen for reaching out and @streetarttoday for having me back in one my favorite cities.
'Nature's Arch and Visions of Altered Landscapes'
When creating this mural, a partnership between two nations, I was asked to speak to an issue that impacts them both. This image arises from contemplating Climate Change and how it can alter the landscapes of two very different nations. The painted leaves become something of a hopeful gateway for the viewer to walk through. One where we can envision a future with respect to the earth.
With the recent death of Sudan, the last male White Rhino, the issue of extinction becomes a very real one. The natural rate of extinction is about 1-5 species per year. Scientists estimate we’re currently losing species at a rate of 1,000 – 10,000 times more than this base rate. In a world that is losing the grip on its biodiversity, how do we quantify something so large in scope? It’s hard to feel empowered when issues feel so grand. I’m not here to say I have an answer but sometimes the smallest actions can ripple out. Here is to a hopeful future beyond our human-centric vision.
Thank you @startindia and @canadainindia for making this possible. To @julia_borowicz for the surprise assistance in painting hundreds of those leaves. And of course to @bheem8504 (the wonder kid Deepak) for being the muse and standing here for scale. Awesome shot by @pranavgohill . And a massive thank you to everyone here and all over the globe for the years of support, for giving me the hope I can make a ripple.

• 'Apparition of The Past'
Based on concepts of a post apocalyptic future, one where ecosystems have collapsed, this images speaks of an unwritten story, a metaphor for the perils of our time and that which is yet to come.
A human figure wearing a filtration mask drudges through a harsh environment. Holding a talisman or totem of a bear skull, he knows not what it is he carries but knows it holds the power of the past. A time of potential and plenty. An apparition appears, one that only we can see but he feels in presence. We know what it is, he knows what will be.
Huge thanks to @st_artnow for the fantastic spot. Stitch shots by @just_a_spectator (thanks for stopping by each day!) Corner of Ludlow and Delancey.
