New Paintings at Aspen Lodge and Universal Conciousness Festival

August 30, 2014

A recently completed series of my paintings are now available at Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa’s gift store in Colorado.

In September the originals will be available for sale in the silent auction at The Universal Consciousness Festival.

 The series is inspired by the concept of the journey into universal consciousness: over-coming struggle, harmony, balance, wellness, growth, community, cultural diversity and nature. Integrating different symbols along with the iconic yin-yang but Americanized into Ying Yang to emphasize the mixed cultural aspect.

The Aspen Lodge is indeed a great retreat located in the beauty of an amazing natural habitat, The Rocky Mountains. They have recently renovated, reopened and rising up strong from last year’s major damage from Colorado’s massive floods. To see more information about Aspen Lodge and/or to book reservations visit:

Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoyed my work. Cheers!

Working with San Francisco Community – Recent Endeavors

August 12, 2014

Lately and with great honor I have had wonderful opportunities as an artist and graphic designer to work with my direct community in San Francisco.

Currently and recently launched is a very crucial fundraiser to Save The African Outlet and help them establish a dynamic African Cultural Center in San Francisco. A place that is safe and accessible for all SF residents and visitors to get in touch with Native Africa, the roots of all human culture.

Working with store owners Judah Dwyer and Horgan Edet, I edited the video, constructed the graphics, advised and assisted with setting up their crowd-fundraiser campaign.

The African Outlet is my favorite store in the whole world and even more so like a shrine. Any of your help with this cause is deeply appreciated.

Also over the last couple of months I have been working on a collaborative community painting project with Jason Wynman of 14 Black Poppies and Rebbeca Shultz for CHP Housing Project in San Francisco.

We ask people the question where do you belong? For there they constructed their own visual about the subject matter and pasted onto a large canvas which Rebbeca and I have been painting around, making it look a bit like a map or topological view of a landscape.

Very much looking forward to the next phase and very happy to be working along side so many creative constructive forces in my direct community: San Francisco, California.

Earlier this month (Nov. 7th) I attended and displayed newly completed works in Fern Alley.

Curated by 14 Black Poppies, this Art in the Alley event was a great success and I personally had a great time with the community. I recommend checking out their blog for all the latest info about their events at http://www.14blackpoppies.com/

They have also posted a music video with footage from the Nov. 7th In-Flux Art in the Alley show, the direct link to the video is: http://www.14blackpoppies.com/1/post/2013/11/in-flux-a-music-video.html

Here are some of the new works which I debuted at the Nov. 7th show.

Last Friday’s Art Show

September 17, 2013

Last friday Sept. 13th I had the honor of hanging more art at Plug n’ Play Music Studios.

This time my good friends Keegan and Tina also showed their works.

Everyone attending was invited to participate in collaborative live art. Image

We got to see my art displayed under the black lights!

This will be going on again once every month. Every month we will try to change up some of the art. All the art is still up in the halls providing inspiration to musicians, If you happen to be at Plug n’ Play check it out!

Much thanks to everyone involved with making this happen.
