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.

This wall was created by DELVE www.flickr.com/photos/delovate/ ,Will Kasso www.flickr.com/photos/kasso_vs/ & Leon Rainbow www.leonrainbow.com. We decided to do a tribute wall for Guru of the hip hop duo, GANGSTARR. Guru passed away recently due to a battle with cancer. His death was a huge blow to the Hip Hop community. This wall is in honor of a legendary emcee who left a wealth of material for future generations to come.
