cascading living room (i can't stop)

cascading living room

the last few days have been spent wrapping everything that's not nailed down with fragments.
i'll be taking this approach to the urban environment in the next few months.
it has been very cathartic to immerse myself in this project, i'm just not ready to let go.

the cascading confession was originally conceived and created for the TEXT-BASED THROWUP THROWDOWN. after accepting a friendly challenge from fellow street artist ANDREW01, ninja and i created this 8 and a half foot by 5 foot piece as the background, sub-text layer. my intention was to cover this layer up with banners, which i did, partially hiding the message.
it wasn't until after i had come clean on the city streets that the piece really hit me.

i'll go back to that in a future blog.

peace and love

my first blog

like a moth drawn to an open flame, my first blog.

with the 2010 olympics getting closer in Van, i have enlisted the help of several other artists to assist me on a massive project that will encompass SEVERAL city blocks and provide a stark critique of the city's handling of the homelessness and addiction crisis that is plaguing Vancouver's downtown eastside neighborhood. as with all olympic shames, people are being displaced, but not helped. I hope to bring this project to fruition on the streets in about a year's time, as the olympic build-up hits full throttle. i will be working periodically on this project as well as keeping up my frantic pace of annotating and providing quality gonzo jermalism.

a few spots i decorated this week include...

the peak of grouse mountain in North Van
