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!
I’ve always been fascinated about what makes graffiti artists choose a particular spot to paint. Some times it’s about high visibility and other times it’s about safety and seclusion. Whatever the reason might be, we invade these spaces, sometimes with heavy planning and other times it could be totally spontaneous. I always felt a bit like an urban explorer. Graffiti has taken me to some pretty strange places over the years.
Back in 2010, I had spent some time thinking about all of this and decided to start a website that was less about the graffiti but the total environment of the spaces we create our art. The site was called Graffiti Spaces and was basically a person photography project of mine. It only last a year or so, but I wanted to document some of the photos I posted because there were some good ones in there.
I went back to paint another mural at the ultra-cool offices of Pulsepoint in Lower Manhattan. Had some fun with this one, incorporating a bunch of imagery related to their office and values. Check it out…
Big shoutout to my partner in crime, Mimik, for all his help! Also, I took a pic of the other lounge area we did last time we were there…
