Italia!! Asta Art Tour is currently in Tuscany! This is my second International job and WHAT A PLACE TO BE. I am living and painting at a Villa in the Tuscan hills. Just incredible. The owner of this Villa saw my work on social media, reached out to me to see if I would be interested in painting his Villa, emails were exchanged, plans were made, and now here I am! This mural is in one of the 6 bedrooms at the villa and I am so happy with the results! Was truly inspired while working on this mural with the incredible views outside. Breathtaking!
This mural is located on Wilson Ave between George and Melrose. This is my second mural in Bushwick! I used to live in the neighborhood for YEARS... but I lived there before the Asta Art Tour was a glimmer in my eye. I was so pleased to hear from and be commissioned by an old friend and acquaintance from my Brooklyn days... I was asked to do a medium sized public exterior mural on a very busy street on a wall that was all graffitied up and tagged... The wall is part of a garage and I was able to bring life to a very sad wall. A homie of mine, Adam Fu, worked by my side on the garage roll up gate. Together we created a pretty eye catching dual mural project! I am always happy to go back to my old stomping grounds *(especially if it's for work!).
Always happy to work with Vans. One of my favorite clients! This was my 5th job with Vans.

Super fun and look forward to the next gig!
