Fun little project here in Los Angeles Street in the heart of DTLA. These boxes look so much like the little boxes in out pockets that we use to communicate, entertain and feel with.
This one is at my neighbors new loft, cool dude named Kofi. We blessed it with some inspiring art.
So many good people passed on in 2016... David Bowie, George Michael, Prince...all great talents. I think they left this planet and their souls returned to the stars. This mural connects the two together. The green plants represent the life on this planet and the triangle represents the gateway into the other realm in the stars. As above, so below.
Shred hard Cuba! Here is a piece I did for benefit art show with www.amigoskate.com. Its made from an old well skated deck that has been cut into a skull shape. The proceeds will go to build a first skatepark in Cuba.
This hits home...I've been skateboarding since 12 and started skating in Poland in the 90's where there were NO FUCKING SKATEPARKS and one skateshop in Warsaw and prob like 5 in whole country. The boards were double or triple the price (basically avarage 1 month salary) of boards here and we had to do some innovative things like cut the old big boards into smaller modern shapes, take old wheels and mill them down to smaller size or to get rid of flat spots. We found bearings from Polish machinery that would fit (they were actually pretty good) and I even seen people weld trucks back together after they broke, all hardware was from other equipment ...you would skate your deck untill looked like chewed up apple core...bro, hard times.
Im glad that the relations between US and Cuba are getting better and that we can get some boards and parks build there, those kids need to shred hard, too.
I recently got hired to paint few murals and signs at Spoke Bicycle Cafe on LA River bike path in Frogtown. Spoke is a cafe and a bike shop. What a fun project! Tommii Lim jumped in and painted one section of the front wall. I did the wind/leaf man hustling hard on his road bike on the left and art directed this project. This mural almost feels like its coming out of the left folliage and on to the bike path. I also did some hand painted signage and painted the cool container doors that when opened, let the bikers and joggers ride or run into the large space inside of spoke.
I'm part of the team building a sweet video game arcade in La Mesa called Coin Haus. I did this temporary art on wood outside, I love it!
"update" The designer Philippe Beltran liked it so much that we cut it out and installed it permanently on the inside :D
Check out the video of F33L I painted on the patio floor.
I’m prob drunk
its sometime 2010-11
my brother is still alive
this place still feels new and exciting...
Its 4am and she answered. Her avatar popped up in a private mode on my augmented glasses. A slim viewing bar showing only her eyes surrounded by an quiet Spring Street in the background.
"Are you up?" - I asked
she replied - "Yes"
"I'm coming over now, b there in 10" - I said.
"Ok, the door is open"- and the avatar dissapeard. I started walking a bit faster to the building where those eyes live.
This print captures how I feel when I walk thru Downtown LA at night. It brings me back to time when I just moved here and the place has not been so busy and still very new to me. I have printed it myself with use of screen printing and stencil techniques. Size is 18" x 24" and available in my store here.
I painted another mural, this time its in the Arts District. Two hands guarding the Colyton and 5th corner. Check out the fake bricks.
Its about time, young and old on one roof in Downtown. An old man on the right used to be the kid on the left, looking at the clock of the late hour of 11:11.
Demonslayer and I painted this mural together. Our styles blended really nice. This is located on the roof of Hayward Building (6th and Spring St.) in DTLA.
Mikolaj Wyszynski's solo art show in chinatown at the Shadowbox Gallery in a heart of the Historic Chinatown. New work based on our temporary lifestyles and technological interactions. The opening is during the KCRW's Chinatown Summer Nights festival and runs during the festival hours from 5pm to Midnight August 22nd. The show will end on Sunday September 13th.
Big thanks to the Raw Materials and The Down and Out for the sponsorship and support for local art.
Virtual death avatar. I was inspired by my recent purchase of VR headset and the anime Cyber City Oedo where one of the characters stays alive by becoming one with a giant computer after death.
Silk screened by me with black/white on gray French Paper. size 16" x 20"
I was a part of BE STREET's Bootleg Bart art show. It was their first LA show and I think they did super well, even Matt Groening showed up! I did this Witch-house Bart... its a spin on the Crystal Castles cover. CCs have huge influence on my art.
We are living through a Virtual Space now. Our communications take place in a virtual rooms generated in the high tech homes we live in. Our electronic devices connect us with other users at a split of a second. We feel through our cellphones online...with others.
This exibit will show all of my new paintings 2014 and will stay up to view for the rest of this year.
Here are few photos from the opening, the man behind the camera is Michael Casatico
his collaborative mural between Tommii Lim and I was painted before and during the Born Modern art show at 72 and Sunny university program called 72U. We decided to go with the black and white theme to merge our styles together. In the modern world human interactions are often limited to expression via our cellphones. More often we say "I love You" over the phone rather than directly to the person intended. The phone is sort of telling us when to feel, and thanks to that we feel more often in this modern world. The art show was a blast, a warehouse full of creative "moderns" vibrated with DJs and mind blowing visuals. Check out the video from the art show here.
Doorway into the stars. There are so many doors in Downtown Los Angeles, some of them lead to amazing places.
It was hot the night we burned chrome...her pretty childface smooth as steel, with eyes that would have been on the bottom of some Atlantic trench, cold grey eyes that lived under terrible pressure. -William Gibson
