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.
