During April/May 2013, I was staying with friends in Venice Beach (LA), an area with a traditionally diverse artistic community and history surf/skate culture. Thanks to Brandedarts I had the opportunity to paint a wall at the ‘Love Shack’, a well-recognised Venice Beach local-institution located on Lincoln Boulevard. We decided to paint one of my recent ‘Lion’ pieces as a tribute to the culture of the area and I place I consider my homebase in LA.

Special mention to my homies in the Rose Street house where I stayed, known as the ‘Rosebuds’, the inclusion of the rose on this wall is for you guys!
