I want to thank the The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles for helping me secure funding and commissioning me to restore my mural "They Claim I'm a Criminal" at Southern California Library on Vermont in South L.A.
Originally painted in 2010, the mural was hit hard in the last year with a wave of graffiti that had turned the mural into an unrecognizable wall of bombs and tags.
This is the first graffiti art mural they have ever restored!
Earlier this year, the MCLAstepped in, thanks to my dear friend and Exec. Director Isabel Rojas-Williams. She told me it was unacceptable for my mural to be in that state of ill repair as we were all celebrating the passing of the new mural ordinance city wide.
She worked with Councilman Price from the 9th District to secure funding for me to repair the mural and give it a much needed anti-graffiti coat. We were able to hire SPARC to give it the sacrificial coating.
Now it looks great! Hopefully for many years to come!!
Thank you Isabel Rojas-Williams, the MCLA, SPARC, Razer, Easi, Yusef, Michelle,
Socal Library and Councilman Price for all your help!
In serious development for the last year or so, I am finally ready to announce the launch of our own creative communications agency: www.creweststudio.com
Partnering with my longtime friend & veteran branding expert Scott Power, we've decided to combine our efforts and take the "Art of Business" to the next level. Coinciding with the launch, we are doing our 1st trade show (SURTEX) this weekend in New York City!!
Opening day we'll have our good friends, Marka27 and Werc, knocking out some live paintings for all attendees to enjoy. Monday I'll be taking over and dropping some acrylic on canvas as well. Come by our booth #556 and say hello!
