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!
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. CLICK ZOOM
