photos from my recent road trip from Vancouver to LA. We took coastal highways pretty much the whole way down, and spent time in Portland, San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles.
Shouts to the homie CHEZ for hooking this wall up for us in Berkley. It was a really nice spot and really chill! Painted with WAN KEB THEMO and CHEZ
I had to rush off as soon as I finished so I didnt get any pictures of the rest of the wall =S

A few weeks ago I set out to paint this sketch that CHUCK had drawn for me. It was a smooth transition from paper to wall because it was easy to see the contours and shapes of the letters in the sketch. Overall I am happy with the way it turned out, I hope I did you right Chuck! Rime and Host were also in town, and Ensoe is on the wall too. Thanks for the good company and Jokes!

I haven’t been posting on my site much because I’ve been traveling down the scenic West coast. Ive been homeless in Portland, camping on the Oregeon Coast and Northern California, and through the Redwood Forests. I have a few photos to share right now but I promise there will be a plethora of flicks coming very soon

A couple months ago I was commissioned to create some artwork for the patio lounge area at Goldfish Pacific Kitchen in Yaletown, Vancouver. At first they were interested in getting me to recreate some artwork they had already reviewed and though would fit the atmosphere. After consultation and a review of my portfolio, we had agreed to create something new and original. One of my recent paintings titled “Separation” seemed to stand out with both parties, so I suggested using the painting as a reference to work from. At this point I got really excited about the project. The next step was figuring out the dimensions of the piece. I thought breaking up the piece into a trip tic would suite the space nicely. Goldfish then provided me with 3 beautiful birch panels.
The concept for this piece was to capture the idea of street art and graffiti based imagery simply through the materials used; not necessarily through depictions of the piece itself. The artwork is a balance between my graffiti practice and a more abstract ideology. I try to remove myself as much as possible from trying to create anything specific, I am more focused on building layers and the relationships between colours and lines. Theres alot of spontineity and happy accidents in the work as well.
As part of the installation, I wanted to create a backing to frame the paintings. The amazing contractors at Goldfish did a great job putting everything together.
Full size Image HERE. Overall I am really happy with the way these came together. Working with Goldfish was a not only a great oppurtunity but they were actually amazing to work with, The workflow was really smooth. Im glad I had the chance to create something not only original, but also something that fits in my current body of work. I have to give thanks to my friend Bikes for helping me with this project, and everyone else involved over at Goldfish. Untill next time
