Connection of humanity, painting inspired by Contemporary artist Lousie Low, an incredible artist I met during Urban Exchange in Penang.

Last day in Tokyo during the rain had the real pleasure to paint the shutters for Akane & Noriyuki – Nico Hair & Foot Care. Super lovely place and people with big hearts and love for art.

Thanks to Takuma of SNGK Gallery for curating this mural, making the connection and introductions. Good people good friends.

Finished – Memorial in honor of the memory of Jorge Palmas. One of two brothers that work at The Bakery LA. Horses were a favorite of Jorge, something that gave him pleasure and happiness. Throughout the week of painting there were small conversations about Jorge and who he was as a man. It helped to bring this artwork and myself closer to him. His brother Sergio called him “Carnalito” – which means “Little Brother.” You could tell that there was a deep loss for him and a lot of love. He worked extremely hard, and would do everything he could to make those around him have easier lives. Jorge is survived by his parents and 4 siblings.

I can only hope this painting will give some relief and happiness for his family and friends. Jorge will be dearly missed – my heart and thoughts go out to you – hope you are in a better place and at peace.

Thank you to everyone at The Bakery LA for being so kind while I worked on this, Amy for being the best and so supportive. Sergio for all your help and talking with me. Levi Ponce (muralmile.org) for the scaffolding and being a humanitarian. Marinda for helping me get paint and being incredible. Thank you all.

Title: Symbiotic
Medium: Mural – Acrylic & Water Based Paint
Size: 27meters x 15meters
Year: 2014
Location: Penang, Malaysia

Finished – Its quite beautiful when you have a situation that makes you so uncomfortable – so you dwell and dwell and think about it. You calculate in your head the possibilities and how you are going to pull it off. For large scale Muralism I generally always use MTN 94s – so having this mural due to it’s Historic Nature – Natural Water Based Paints were the only option. Terrifying… for me a bit — but also a chance to push and try something new. To paint and be messy and let colors mix as they flow down the wall. To let the wall paint itself and be in a natural state.

Homeless man down the street from Hin Bus Art Depot – inspirationally fitting to the beauty of the wall. There and a part of the overall structure with details and history – but sadly relatively un-noticed.
