Woodward Wall: Finished (Chinese New Year)

It is with great pride that I showcase the finished piece. Bearing in mind that the location is in Chinatown, I wanted to create a painting that represented, or at least respected, the neighborhood culture. I've always been inspired by the big colorful dragon masks that parade the streets amid fireworks and smoke and falling confetti. I think I captured that.
The size is approximately 14' x 6', split into 4 panels.
Big thanks to John and Kristine Woodward of the Woodward Gallery for giving me the space to hang this piece.

Woodward Wall: Part I

On August 30th I will be installing a large painting (aprox. 6' x 14') across the street from the Woodward Gallery on Eldridge Street in the Lower East Side. It will run for the months of September and October. The piece will be broken up into 4 panels that make up one image. This is my attempt to document its process.

Driggs and N.9th

This one was actually on the corner, but the workers at the site took it upon themselves to move it over. Perhaps I had blocked their entrance. Either way, they could have trashed it just as easy.

Keap Street

This is my first attempt at putting up a two panel piece. Its a little crooked on the right, but i know what went wrong. I had it lined up perfectly, put in a screw on the right side of the panel, and assumed it was still aligned. It wasn't. When you're using safety screws, you can't take em out. Either way, 8' x 8'. The start of a new adventure in dodging Jake while getting up.

This weekend I was given the opportunity to repaint a wall I had done in 2004. Those of you in NY know how hot it was out there. The streets were still filled with people showing there Puerto Rican pride. Everybody showed me great appreciation for what I was painting. Big thanks to Sinclair and Kristen Smith for letting me paint on their home.

This one gives you an idea of the size. The girl walking by, as I was trying to get some quick photos before the rain, just happened to be wearing a scarf and dress that matched the piece perfectly.

This is a photo I took a few years back from the roof of my old studio in Greenpoint on a beautifully clear autumn night. Great views and late night discussions were had in abundance.

I recently came across this drawing on an adult hotline card that I used as a bookmark when I read "One Hundred Years Of Solitude", by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Sometimes books become time capsules for things that might ordinarily be discarded. Pieces of colored paper found on the street, a flyer, stickers, jotted down notes that are tucked away and forgotten.
