Here is a video of the piece I painted at the new offices of the Montreal architecture firm Aedifica last month. Very cool! Video directed by Phil Arsenault & project curated by Basta!/Nicholas Coupal
More photos here.
Retna and I just painted this mural in Salt Lake City, Utah last week. I think this is the tallest mural either of us has done so far, at about 44 feet height. This was commissioned by FICE. It was a special project for everyone involved. Many thanks to Corey B for making it all possible, and the rest of the cool folks at FICE, OTRA, The guy at the gun shop next door who gave me a beanie and hand warmers, Este Pizza, the lovely Bri Acsani for modeling, and everyone else who was supportive of this in any way. The text in the halo is in Latin, the beginning of the Ave Maria (Hail Mary).
"The catalog offers a unique glimpse into the the preparation, installation, and execution of the artist's first ever collaborative exhibition.

I did some painting in Montreal, Quebec recently..the yellow paisano was venturing into a Hasidic part of the city, painted with local aerosol kingpins Senck & Omen. The other piece was a really special project for the new offices of the architecture firm Aedifica. The two kids serve as a subtle reminder of the importance of creating a better environment for the next generation. I'll try to post more shots later.
Merci to my friend Louis C, Val, Snoop, Poutine, and all the fine folks at Aedifica.
