Accenture Mural

Here is a new mural I just recently completed for my friends at Accenture in Florham Park, NJ. This was a fun project and it was a long time in the making. We initially began working on this project a few months before COVID hit hard in New Jersey and the project was put on hold indefinitely. So it’s great to see that the world is taking some small steps at going back to normal, and that this mural got a chance to happen. Check it out!

No paint, no gain!

Over the years, I’ve done a lot of painting at all types of gyms, fitness centers, athletic centers and basically any type of facility related to athletics from crossfit to gymnastics to powerlifting and even home gyms! One thing is for sure, people like to get amped up while the work out (not to mention a cool wall to take some selfies in front of…haha). I thought it would be cool to take a look at all of this work in one spot, so here it is!

Klas Reunion

I’ve painted with a lot of people over the years, but always enjoy rockin’ with my long time friend, Klas! I got a lot of love for this dude cuz we hooked up in the mid-90s and partnered up for a while and worked our way up the ranks in Jersey. He always put in a ton of work though and went on to become a Jersey bombing legend and clean train monster! It was always an experience painting with this dude, whether in a yard or at a wall…talking graff, politics or pretty much anything.

That’s why it was so cool to finally get a chance to paint with him after more than 20 YEARS! We decided to go big and rock some big ol’ styled out roller pieces. Felt just like a time machine back to the 90s…a few beers and lots of laughs…or maybe it was the other way around…I can’t remember. Haha!

Morris Museum Model Train Gallery Mural

I recently had the pleasure of working on a mural for the Morris Museum in their Model Train Gallery. We painted a 360° mural on all four of the gallery’s walls that depicts typographic lettering and illustrative landscapes including a painting of the Museum itself. The installation is named “Art, Sound and Motion” after the Museum’s mission statement of “Interpreting the past, discovering the future, through Art, Sound and Motion”.

I would like to send a big thank you to Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Ron Labaco and the entire staff at the Morris Museum, all of the generous donors including the Levitans and Andy Frish, and Leo “Mimik” Alban for the assist.

Swing by the Morris Museum and check it out next time you are in the Morristown area!

Love Over Hate

With a global pandemic changing everything, followed by a series of horrific events related to racism in our country, the world seems desperate and divided. It only felt right to paint something that could help inject a little positivity so I went with a “Love Over Hate” message. This one was inspired by my boy, the late Jerome “Cuzo” Gonzalez. I originally painted this phrase as part of his memorial mural in downtown Somerville, NJ.

This time around, I kept it simple and straightforward, but with a little style. Check it out!

Alphabeta

I was originally working on this collection of letters for the 36 Days of Type project, but was sidetracked by the craziness of life and decided to stop at “Z”. In any case, I am happy with how these turned out. I’ve always been really critical of my own letters and making sure they have good flow and movement. Graffiti should feel like the letter have come to life. I was also intrigued to play with layering different types of mediums and the abstraction of the form. Alphabeta is an exploration of those two things. Here is what I came up with…

Aerosol Exhibition

I had the honor of being chosen as one of the artists to create an installation for an exhibition at Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey named “Aerosol: Graffiti | Street Art | New Jersey | Now”. Here is a write up from Morris Museum:

New Jersey—uniquely positioned between Philadelphia and New York City, the two historic centers of graffiti and street art—plays a vital role in the ever-evolving aerosol art narrative. This exhibition, co-curated by Will Kasso Condry, celebrates the vitality of graffiti writing and street art in New Jersey today through the work of twelve established and emergent artists, painted directly on the Museum’s walls.

Participating Artists
4sakn, Acet TM7, Dave Mek One Klama, Dean Ras Innocenzi, Demerock, Distort, Elan One, Felipe Prox One Rivas, Jonathan Conner (LANK), Leon Rainbow, Maliq Griffin and Will Kasso Condry

I’ve got to give a huge shout out to Will Kasso for including me in this show and creating a stellar lineup, Ron Labaco and Dr. Cleveland Johnson of the Morris Museum for opening your doors to us, all of the other artists for pushing the culture forward and everyone who has helped make this show a success.

Aerosol runs until March 15, 2020. Visit Morris Museum for more info.
