I took the leap a long time ago.
fotoMahaloness -right on the edge, the moment before the leap into the world of large scale painting (the first image is looking down off the swing stage quite often used for painting large murals on high rise walls.
a magical bus I painted a couple years ago, a labour of love. I do not receive a lot of recognition or acknowledgement for this project, it was a massive life lesson which took a while to accept, we have all been there.
in this image taken from the ‘net, everyone and their cat has their name on it except for the artist who painted the bus, me, this has been a pet peeve of mine, when artists do not receive acknowledgement and recognition for their work, unfortunately it happens far too often. The saving grace is that it is the style of the work that itself is my signature.
Maui project (2 murals one permanent in Paia and the other impermanent painted on a concrete shack in the middle of a field next to Ho’okipa, a very special place, the black mural was literally painted in pitch black at night on a new moon, it lasted 2 days before it was painted over by the Kony 2012 fake it until you make it campaign
This was the first mural I ever worked on, I worked with a group of guys from Toronto (Global Colors Inc.) spearheaded by Jamie Osborne, who along with Christiano, and Ramone, taught me the ropes on mural making and working at large scale.
