Since we now have a new mural ordinance allowing for permitted murals to be erected around the City of LA, I have decided to finally launch my own citywide mural campaign!

I'm calling it #FACESLA.

My murals for this campaign will focus on creating large multi colored portraits of people I consider worthy of recognition, not because they are famous or celebrities, but simply because they are common Angelenos.  Ranging from community leaders to family members or just happy playful children, these murals will serve to re-shape the landscape of our City of LA.  I will also be hiring young apprentices to help me create these works of art so that they may learn to one day create their own works of art on the City's streets.

As a native Angeleno, I know that L.A. is more than just Hollywood glitz and glamour.  L.A. has countless stories to tell that are hidden within beautiful communities of multi-ethnic people.  Most of these people are hard-working and thankful to live in this "City of Angels" and I am proud to put the spotlight on them.

Although I have secured private funding for the first few murals, I will be looking for others who are interested in this campaign to offer their walls, give financial support, or by simply nominating possible "faces".  I plan on producing at least 1 mural a month (indefinitely) throughout L.A. County.  

Mural #1, entitled "voLAr", will begin in August in Downtown L.A. Please share the campaign using #FACESLA on all your social media accounts and help me re-brand, re-shape, and re-face
 Los Angeles!

In honor of the World Cup, here's a flashback to late 2013 when I was commissioned by Blue Shield to paint a bunch of soccer balls for a campaign.

I really like the way they came out. Too bad they're all gone!

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 MCLA stepped 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!
