My talented friends Kamea Hadar and Tristan Eaton recently collaborated on a mural, then they threw a party and buffed it in front of everyone! Can’t imagine spending all that time painting to buff only to turn around and immediately erase it but must have been fun for those that were there! More images below.
Mexican artist Smithe painted one of my favourite murals at Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year; it was a collaboration with German artist Case, and you can see it here. When I first posted his work back in 2012 I didn’t realise that in addition to being an insane painter and illustrator he’s also a musician! His band, .Stendal will be playing SXSW this month!
Seeing his work nice and big in Hawaii took it to a whole other level for me. I love his line work and the way he colours his pieces. Take a look at some more images below.
I was walking down West 4th last week and ran into my bud Luke Ramsey, painting a little mural out front of what will soon be the Patagonia Vancouver shop. I love everything he makes! This one was inspired by the movement of a circulatory system, and if you’re in Vanvouver it’s at 4th and Maple. More images below.
My good friend Mark Paul Deren aka Madsteez is one of my absolute favourite people to hang with, and one of the most talented artists I know. He’s painted murals all over the world, and done so with one regular eye and one crazy eye. By crazy eye I mean he can’t see anything out of it other than random colour gradients; a rare condition he was born with.
Mark is teaming up with a filmmaker named Jamie Heinrich to make a short film, and they’re using Kickstarter to fund the project in a pretty unique way. Mark will be painting a mural made of up to 1,000 20″ x 20″ sections and donors to the project will each get one of the painted sections.
Watch the video below to get a better idea of the film they’re making!
