In celebration of Black History Month, Nike approached me to help them paint a mural to kick off an event at Gonzales Park in Compton last weekend.
They had a great image designed by Fuse Green and they asked if I could replicate it as a mural.
This was no easy task because of the level of detail especially in the background.
So I decided to create the mural using a combination of stencils, spray paint, and acrylic.
I had my boy Ando at search+resQ help me out with creating these mad stencils:
I hired the sign painting skills of the homie SINER LTS to help me out.
The result was pretty tight and seamless!
Along with the unveiling of the mural, I also led a community stencil workshop session with the kids in the neighborhood. I used some of the images from the mural as well as a few Man One specials. As you can see they ate it up!
