This is a permanent "outdoor mural installation" I just painted with Kofie in Los Angeles titled "Inspired". It's at Mid-City Arts/33Third in conjunction with the Pasadena Museum of California Art's new 'Street Cred' Exhibition. It's our fourth collaborative mural together and only our second in LA, (unless you count a small mural we also painted with Retna in 2003). Kofie is one of my favorite modern/abstract artists, and one of the few people I've ever collaborated with on walls aside from Retna and Reyes. A number of other respected artists from the PMCA exhibition will be painting at 33Third as well in the coming days. Many thanks to: Med & Shig for the support & materials, Lacheln for modeling, Kim, Ixchel, Todd, & kohsh for documenting, and thanks to the loud Jamaicans next door for the soundtrack.
