The Streets IZ Watching: Pioneers

This wall is a dedication to a few of the many graffiti pioneers that came before me, with paintings glorifying few of the many  innovators that paved their way into graffiti history. Featuring Cornbread, Risk, Iz the Wiz, Bode's Cheech wizard character, Gkae, Stayhigh and Cope 2.

The Streets IZ Watching: Roller Door Install

Roller door was created using recycled corrugated metal , found objects and purchased materials, giving the gallery the illusion of a back alley corridor instead of the normal sterile gallery feel.  The mural was created in an evening , the way it would be done painting illegally in the streets, far different than painting a commissioned mural for a business.

Jeff is an amazing artist and I was thrilled to work with him. i have painted several stop signs in the past and wanted to do something new the use of neon was far beyond my expectations and I couldn't be happier in the way it turned out.

hand embellished photocopied prints. The box truck always has and always will be a sought after surface for a graffiti writer , the mobility and smooth surface are great attributes to the iconic vehicles.

Acrylic on canvas painted in 2011. Depicting an injured Iraqi woman showing the peace sign despite her circumstances. The faintest skull is painted in the surgical mask protecting her from the harsh air of warfare.

This wall was mustard yellow so what better thing to put up than the the hotdogs. The cubbies allowed room for some small sculptures and objects. The painting on the left is acrylic on 16x20" canvas board, based on a photograph I took of a lazy sign waiver at a local N.Y. style hotdog joint. The piece on the right is a L.A. style dog, spray paint and paint pen  on canvas wrapped around broken skateboards.

this wall has paintings created with a very surreal feel. Once I really started appreciating fine art Salvador Dali definitely stood out to me. His use of fine portraiture against absurd and abstract was appealing to me and I really started to use the ideas in my work. "opposing'' on the left was one of the first of those pieces ,the rest of the work was created for this show using elements shown throughout the gallery.

This wall is a reminder of the street work I have created in the last few years. The wall is set up as a map ,the center line represents S. Virginia st. from south to north west being up with murals stemming off in each direction. The highest concentration being the south east section in "Midtown"  Reno.

This installation was made of shit I had been collecting for the last few years. I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like but I just brought it to the gallery and went to town, urban Mr. Rogers on acid is what i was going for.

 the box truck is a sought after object for graffiti just like trains and phone booths. I painted this in early 2011, it's been floating around for several years at different shows and businesses collecting dust. I got it back right before the show  and it made a perfect addition to the body of work.
