Welling Court 2017

I had the pleasure of joining my AdHoc Art friends and art compadres for the annual Welling Court Mural Project in Astoria, Queens, NYC. I enjoyed painting for the first one back in 2010 and finally got back there to join in on another round 7 years later!

It was a blast painting in the New York summer heat, welcoming the cool breezes coming off the East River with the Manhattan skyline at my back, neighborhood block party, skating, and reconnecting with friends and family I don't get to see very often these days.

All the previous murals get painted over each year so unfortunately I had to paint over this Elephant piece by Mike Makatron and Dirt Worship.

I swear I didn't sketch these to look like the figures were into some hot elephant sexy time.

And we buff...


Solid dude that Abe Lincoln Jr. Kids walking by asked him to paint their names so he put all their names up on the t-shirts of each of his characters on that roll up gate over there.

Finito!

TONDO - Spoke Art Gallery, SF - May 6

This piece took me on quite a journey and I am looking forward to debuting it in the round amongst a humbling sea of 49 other circular works. Hope you can join us this Saturday for TONDO at Spoke Art, SF.

Details:
SPOKE SF is pleased to present TONDO, a dynamic group exhibition featuring over 50 artists working in the round. We challenged some of our favorite artists to work on a round surface and left the rest up to them. The result is a stunning display of the endless possibilities contained within a circle.

Tondo has historically referred to a round painting or low relief derived from the Italian rotondo or round. Simultaneously working within the bounds of the circular form while coloring outside the lines only as artists can, each piece plays with the definition of tondo. Using neon, painting, cut paper, embroidery and more each artist has taken the challenge of an unconventional format to give new dimension to their work.

Participating Artists:
Peter Adamyan | Bagger43 | Jonathan Bergeron | Robert Bowen | Brandon Boyd | Stephanie Brown | Bumblebee | Adam Caldwell | Sandi Calistro | John Casey | Peter Chan | Damian Chavez | Nomi Chi | Dan Christofferson | Charles Clary | Cannon Dill | Dulk | Jason Edmiston | Jayde Fish | Jeremy Fish | Greg Gandy | Sergio Garcia | Frank Gonzales | Greg Gossel | Serge Gay Jr. | Happy D | Evan B Harris | Brandon Holt | Christine Hostetler | Zoe Keller | Caia Koopman | Alex Louisa | Cathy Lu | Ryan Malley | Jen Mann | Jeremy Mann | Caitlin McCormack | Meggs | Jose Mertz | Nadezda | Joanne Nam | Reuben Negron | Nicomi Nix Turner | Chelsea O'Byrne | Meryl Pataky | Daryll Peirce | Relm | Matt Ritchie | Jessica So Ren Tang | Amy Sol | Kevin Earl Taylor | Henrik Uldalen | Roos Vandervliet | Wiley Wallace | Helice Wen | Alex Yanes | Lauren YS | Kate Zambrano

The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, May 27th.
