Volo Calvariam


last week was the opening of 1975 Gallery's 5 year anniversary show Volo Calvariam and to commemorate this milestone, gallery owner, Erich Lehman, decided to celebrate with a skull themed show.  above are my contributions in collaboration with local illustrator Justyn Iannucci.  we had so much fun with our skull piece from this summer's Wall Therapy event (seen here), that we decided to work on some smaller pieces particularly for this show.  be on the look out for more collabos with Justyn in the near future.

Wall Therapy 2013





this past week i was fortunate enough to participate in another Wall Therapy event hosted right here in Rochester, NY.  the roster of participating artists, which tripled in size from last year (!), was no joke and our city was blessed with over 40 new murals around town.  it's been so encouraging to see the amount of support from our community and i can't express how great it was to spend a week outside painting a mural and interacting with all the wonderful people exploring all the new art.  i just want to thank all the great folks and organizers of Wall Therapy, along with the countless volunteers who helped make this such a great event.  i especially want to thank Ron Maier of KenRon for not only supplying the walls but for being incredibly gracious and hospitable.  his enthusiasm for the entire project was infectious throughout the week and he was such a pleasure to have around.

so, above is a series of pics, taken of course, by the lovely Hannah Betts Photography, of my contribution.  there's also a picture of a bonus collab wall with the super talented, Justyn Iannucci.  justyn and i have been wanting to collab for a while and this wall just seemed to be the perfect opportunity.  this was his first mural and he rocked it!

thank you rochester!

peace!

up next:
'Adventures in Technicolor' - a solo exhibition at 1975 Gallery in Rochester, NY opening Sept. 7th

Postcards from the Lab


i know it's been a while so i thought i'd share some insider pics of a few things i've got in the works.  the lovely and talented, Hannah Betts, was kind enough to spend sometime in the studio and capture some great shots of my hole i call a studio.

i do have a few things lined up for the future including a solo show at 1975 Gallery in the fall (more details on that coming soon), a few murals in line for the summer and coming up next month is a HUGE group show at portland, oregon's, BreezeBlock Gallery.  Wider Than a Postcard, is curated by Sven Davis and opens May 2.  a ton of super talented artists have produced works on a 4"x6" postcard format.  above are my contributions and for anyone interested in pre-sales or inquiries contact Paige at paige@breezeblockgallery.com

make sure to stay tuned for more news as details develop on all upcoming projects.  thanks for visiting!

peace!
