Lil' Angel's Garden

daycare garden angel wall

This mural was produced by myself and LUV-ONE for KIDS R FIRST Pre-School It is also the 3rd mural in the CITY OF ANGELS Mural series. This one was a lot of fun to produce! Our only obstacle was working around the pre-existing flower beds that surrounded the wall.

We began like we do all our walls; freestyling and flowing off of one another. The staff of the pre-school were the utmost supportive and gave us complete creative freedom.

The image pictured on the right is a portrait of LUV-ONE's wife as a child and the figure on the left is a portrait of my daughter when she was 6 months. As usual, our wall was blessed with the poetry of Raul Cortes, Jr.(POLO), who wrote a beautiful passage that sums up the entire mural.

Special thanks goes out to Andrea and the entire KIDS R FIRST staff for their hospitality and support of this project and our friend GENT who documented the entire mural process from start to finish.

Graffiti Heaven

S.A.G.E Collective and VS CREW

This is the second wall in the CITY OF ANGELS series entitled, GRAFFITI HEAVEN...a collaboration between S.A.G.E Collective and VS Crew. It was only right to do this wall at Terracycle Warhouse which is a landmark within the east coast graffiti scene. RAIN and DEMER of VS Crew held down the lettering duties while myself and LUV-ONE rocked portraits and background. Delve produced his usual abstract flare while Lank Williams Jr. produced some stencil angels based off of Michelangelo sculptures.

Other than the intense heat, we all had a great time painting. Special thanks to Ricardo Barros for the photo documentation of this production and Raul Cortes, Jr. for his words of inspiration which grace our wall.

NJTL Fundraiser

Last night had a blast with my wifey, Kasso, and his girl at the NJTL Fundraiser at the Westin in Princeton. Open bar was in full effect! as was big ticket catering and all that. Our mural was on everything! Thanks to Rob from NJTL for giving us the opportunity to help out. Got to meet the kid I painted, Zahir, and flick him in front of his portrait. Even got puzzles of the mural to give to our kids. It's going to be an annual thing, so look forward to more projects with the tennis folks.
