My talented friend, DALeast, painted this stunner in Berlin not too long ago. Definitely one of my favs this year. 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!
Pow! Wow! Taiwan has officially begun! I’ve been out in Taipei for a week now, and it has quickly become one of my favourite cities (the food miiight have something to do with it). Here’s a quick re-cap of the first couple days. If you want to follow along on Instagram I’m posting to @Booooooom and you can follow @PowWowTaiwan as well.
We started with a tour of all the potential walls in the city (photo above: Madsteez and Brendan Monroe), which was followed by the official opening of the event. Yesterday we had a little rain delay, so most of the artists are getting started today. James Jean, Kristen Farr, and Mr.Ogay were among the artists able to put some work in, and you can see images of their progress at the bottom of this post.
Lots of images below, have a look!
