I’ve travelled across America for the last two weeks and completed 3 murals in New York and L.A.
In the Bronx
The TAG Public Art Project, curated by local painter Sinxero, has welcomed many artists to brighten up walls and shutters in the Bronx in New York. I painted a 7m large mural of local hip hop legend: Grandmaster Flash. The image shows the famous DJ looking over his shoulder while holding a ghettoblaster.

Run is a young female artist living in Iran where she paints, skates and embrace the urban lifestyle. I decided to paint her portrait for my first mural in Los Angeles, right opposite Gabba Gallery (who are helping artists to paint around the area). I love the determination in her eyes!

I stopped at the Container Yard in Downtown Los Angeles to paint this not-so-innocent boy holding a slingshot. The image is inspired by a photograph by H. Sorensen of O. Lacour.
