I’m contributing to tonight’s ‘Paint The Future’ event happening on Windemere tonight. What I understand, it’s a fundraiser to raise money to buy paint to create more community murals. In a way, it’s a small backlash to the unlawful arresting of 7 graffiti artists a few weeks ago. It should be a really mammoth vibe for a very good cause, so check it out.
I’ll upload my piece in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy the Gil Scott-Heron quote. Happy Wednesday!
I finally got my grubby paws on some paint this morning and got to do a quick piece at the Collective Gallery on Florida road for the Follow Your Art show happening tomorrow eve. It was great to be excited to paint again - looking forward to missioning hard to do some more, but we know the ways of life: Time, time, time.
Lately, I’ve been feeling the pressure to capture and organise my work onto behance and all that type of thing. It sounds easy enough except for the fact that I’m a lazy bastard who would much prefer having a spliff and sketching angrily while listening to records rather than organise my life and be professional. But I’m trying! I’ve just updated my behance with a collection of works from my 2009 solo show ‘Youth and Young Manhood’.
I’m pretty new to behance so ‘follow me’ or whatever - I’d love to see what everyone is up to these days! Check it out!
Busy days ahead! I’m one of the organizers and contributors of the upcoming ‘Our Lives of Deckadence’ skateboard exhibition that opens next friday at Gallery415. It couldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the folks at Verb and Revolution! Too stoked!
Follow the link to the facebook event and I’ll see you at the opening for a drink and a vibe! The Madness!
Man, it’s gonna be a crazy month. I’m taking part in the fundraiser for To Skin A Cat - a documentary about the dwindling numbers of leopards in South Africa and Zulu Tradition. Its a really important cause that I’m really stoked to be a part of. The film makers have organised a gig and art show that looks like its gonna to be pretty awesome. Check out the facebook page and I’ll see you all Friday!
