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!

(Jan. 6, 2010, 4:40 p.m.) — On a recent late afternoon, as the sun set on the underbelly of the dingy and dimly lit Route 3 overpass in East Rutherford, vibrant markings from a graffiti artist caught their final rays of illumination.
The illegal murals are permanently displayed on pylons that hold up the bridge over the Thomas E. Dunn Memorial Highway and NJ Transit train tracks. Some consider the work to be art, some a way to gain notoriety through tagging and others see it as vandalism.
Others believe it’s all of the above.
