Seeking new opportunities

Leave a comment

I do murals. I am always seeking for new walls, new opportunities. In the foto montage you will see the Cirque du Soleil mural that I was a team member on, it was the first ever mural I ever worked on, it was under the guidance of Jamie Osbourne, Global Colors (http://www.globalcolors.com/Gbl_home.html). Jamie taught me everything I know as well as some of the other members of the team. It was a 7 story wall, there was 5 of us on the job, 2 Cubans, a Basilian and 2 Canucks. It took us 23 days and was amazing to work on in every possible way. We used every technique, guided by Jamie, a true master. Since than I have independently beginning with working on a mural on a hardware store called Hillhurst Hardware, a door on 11:11 Boutique, painted over Cirque du Soleil with an Air Canada ad ((Global Colors), which only saving grace was that we used the color cobalt teal a lot! I painted a bus called Furtherer, Big Hau, or Bassbus depending on how you look at it. Recently I installed a couple murals that were meant to be painted over, which I installed as protective deity murals. This is my passion, my love and joy. I love quality and beautiful full vibrant colors, and love working with dynamic, bold imagery. These murals touch people’s lives in so many ways, it is my passion and the passion of the communities I have worked with that make it what it is. I am looking to do more murals, so if you know of someone looking for a mural of awesomeness look no further, I am ready and prepared. I also do interior murals which range from cutout stencil, brush and airbrush. I do background paintings for electronica shows, there’s no surface I would not paint given the opportunity. Please share with those people who would be interested, and contact me directly for more info if you are interested. I do negotiate value prior to working, and believe a fair exchange is key.
