West Coast Trip 2016

In May 2016 I went to see my Dad in Yuma for Memorial Day. So I decided to meet up with my friends Isaias Crow and Pose 2 and get some walls in. We started in San Diego.

Then we went to stay in Rosarito, Mx for a few days at Pose 2’s beach bungalow. I had an amazing time the ocean, landscape, and people were so chill in Mexico. We did a 3 man wall in the compound. Next we went to look for a wall in the city of Rosarito. We were able to get permission for a large wall at a fish taco spot..Win, Win! We were able to paint the 100ft +x 10ft wall in a day in a half.  I think we all learned a lot, created and stretched out of our comfort zones. I really needed this trip to Mexico to bring my creative energy back to life. Not one I will soon forget!

The last part of my trip was spent visiting my dad and benching trains in Yuma, Az. It was a slower tempo then i am used to and I got some much needed rest. I was able to paint a piece or two on my own in Yuma. Kwatsan Nation!

Ras x Rain Bobby Fischer Wall

We have been waiting since 2006 to paint the back wall at Terracycle but never could because it was owned by another company. This year I found out that Terracycle was buying the building and we would be able to paint this “virgin” wall. Ras and myself had not painted together in a while so we decided to paint together on Sunday, April 27th. Ras recently saw a Bobby Fisher documentary and said he wanted to do a chess themed wall. Being a chess fiend I was excited. Ras showed me the reference for the portrait and I worked the chess theme into my piece.
