I painted this piece for my homey Peat Wollaeger's luchador masks collaboration project opening at Club 6 on March 8th. Peat will be stenciling in the eyes and mouth. Looking forward to seeing the finished piece at the show.

Check out this video from Peat's "Hillbillies and Mexican Wrestlers" show last year's where he painted and brought in a ring to wrestle his sons at Mad Art Gallery.
Also check out his "Casa de Luchador" installation in the Hotel Des Arts SF. Luchador's isn't all Peat paints, its just the theme for this exhibit. Check out more of his work at Stensoul.com and pick up one of his Mountain Dew bottles to tickle yer innards.
Spent a couple weeks in NYC loosely based around getting a free hotel stay in The New Yorker thanks to Greg and Chronicle Books. So many damn cool folks out that way in America's nexus. Tadashi jumped in on the trip and flew out with Greg. Cromies Ryan and Jesse from Reno flew out for a weekend for their first time in Gotham. Got to stay with my geeza Jesse Jones and newbie parents Logan and Kristen Hicks. Hoofed around with my homey Kristal who's living out in Brooklyn and Tadashi's buddies and cousin quite a bit as well as finally getting to check out Dan and Kalene's (Thundercut) Open Space Gallery upstate in Beacon. Checked out some brilliant and abundant artwork and had a shit-tarded face facing good time.
Posted up photos of the shenanigans HERE.
