Pennington Day 2015

After I painted the HV Stampede I was asked to do a live painting piece at Pennington Day on Saturday May 16, 2015. Pennington New Jerseys Largest Street Festival. So the concept that we talked about was when urban meets rural. So I created a rural scene and filled it with my signature patterns and designs. I added a grain silo and old truck as th focal points. The background sky contains a simple funky legible “Pennington”. I used warm and cool colors to give the piece depth. I got great feedback from everyone and I am very pleased with the outcome.

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.

Saturday, June 5, Will Kasso and Myself were invited to paint a car at the Grounds for Sculpture. We were very excited about this project being that the Grounds is such a special place and a great art institution. It was surreal with the sculptures and peacocks running around. Turned out crazy the car will be on display for at least the rest of the month. So if your in the neighborhood drop by.
Excerpt from original press release:
Grounds For Sculpture will paint a car! Gratuitous of a vehicle
donation by Suburban Wrench of Pennington, NJ, Grounds For Sculpture will conduct a very special demonstration as local graffiti artists Leon Rainbow and Will “Kasso” Condry invoke the spirit of popular avaunt garde artist Keith Haring and the iconic occasion in 1982 when Haring painted a BMW. Experience this unconventional art piece come to colorful life in a modern day variation!

Beauty

This wall is on the side of  T & T Auto, Pennington and Prospect St in Trenton, NJ.  The wall has always been some what controversial with the Neighbors, but the owner Cliff always had my back. It definitely did not help that the last two walls, although both had a positive message, involved the devil. So when I decided to re-paint the wall I wanted to do two things: 1. Do the wall in a similar fashion to the way I do my water colors. 2. Paint something beautiful that the neighbors would love. So I worked the background and Ras did the portrait ( a random picture of Model Sincerely Ward). Ras was half-way done with the portrait when one of the neighbors stopped and said that  the portrait looked like a demon, because it was blue.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
