My upcoming solo show, ‘Rise & Fall,’ opens at Stolenspace Gallery in London on February 5. This means I am burning the midnight oil and working around the clock. This show is inspired by my recent residency with Inner State Gallery in Detroit, and plays on the current fractures in urban society, such as over-indulgence, fallen idols, and the detriments of pop culture. If you’re near the Shoreditch area, come by and say Hi!
See you (very) soon, London!

Congratulations to Thinkspace Gallery, who recently celebrated their 10-year anniversary. The ‘La Familia’ exhibition showcased the works of over 100 artists (including myself), who painted on 10″ x 10″ wooden panels. The piece above is called ‘Endless Summer,’ a mashup inspired by my new home, Venice Beach, CA, and by my recent trip to the Big Island and Oahu’s North Shore. Cheers to Andrew and Shawn and the rest of the Thinkspace family, I am honored to be a part of the familia!

Last month I was lucky enough to be involved with Pangeaseed once again, for their Seawalls: Murals for Oceans, Miami project in partnership with Sean Havas Gallery and 1xRun in Wynwood, Miami during Art Basel. I am honored to be a part of this non-profit organization and to have the opportunity to paint alongside the talents of Nychos, Hannah Stouffer, Naturel, Aaron Glasson, and Brian Hebets.
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism – or as Pangeaseed likes to call it, “ARTivism.” Pangeaseed collaborates with internationally renowned artists, to create large-scale public murals and organize community-based educational efforts. These projects focus on addressing major environmental issues the oceans are currently facing and promote the importance of long-term sustainability of natural resources.
I’m stoked to be able to contribute my art to an organization that has a broader social cause that I align with. Big shout out to Pangeaseed’s Tre’ and Aaron, Sean and Emma Havas, the 1xRun homies, my assistant Miya, and Stache, the most legit security guard in Miami.
