Never Surrender

Been away from the computer for awhile, taking a break to relax the mind a little. Will share some photos from the past few weeks soon, but for now heres a look back at some work from the a few weeks back. The good brother John is back in the studio from Chicago. Building on what we had started on his last visit, we made some good progress with this meeting. Pulling inspiration from the trials and tribulations of Hercules, John can easily relate to those unthinkable feats embarked on during his time spent in Afghanistan. One of the first deployed after 9/11, his stories that he shared were nothing short of amazing that he is still here with us. The funny thing about John is, you would think after all of the shit he had been through over there he would hold bitter feelings of anger or resentment. Actually he is the opposite. Probably the most approachable guy in the room he is full of life and always has a smile on his face when he's here with us. A true soldier, he did what he had for us and was able to maintain himself in the process. A real inspiration for all of us...

Vandal Squad

Here are some flicks from a recent trip to the "Art In The Streets" exhibit at the MOCA in downtown LA. Jeffrey Deitch did an amazing job at bringing the worlds most dominating graffiti artists from all corners of the globe to showcase their talent, and most of them did so right there on the spot, straight bombing the walls in the museum. Being a graffiti artist myself this exhibit was very inspiring. The bridge between so-called fine art and "street art" is slowing disappearing into thin air. Now we are seeing living proof with this exhibit. Whether it be Tattooing, Graffiti Art, etc. I wont let supreme talent be overlooked by a certain label that is put upon us. We WILL overcome our being enslaved for so long, break the chains, storm the world with OUR style, and earn our respected level in history with the rest of the greats!! Keep moving fam were well on our way.... in the meantime enjoy some inspiration..

On a day like today…

On a day like today the greatest painter to ever live was born. Rembrandt Van Rijn has been a artist under close observation lately, with an ongoing master copy of his currently in the works. His process, technique and magnificent brushwork is something to be schooled on time and time again. Here's a look into some of the works we witnesses in Florence earlier in the year. Notice the evolution of his brushwork from the earlier more refined to later more abstract.

Dangerously Beautiful

Long days lead to longer nights. Much exciting work has been in the works in and out of the studio lately, that will be revealed shortly. For now, take a look into a recent project with the brother Sal.

To kick off Sal's collection he chose to pay homage to the strong and beautiful mexican women that have impacted his life.

Never underestimate the strength of a woman, especially one ready for war...

Remember fellas, it's a man's world, but it wouldn't be nothin without a woman or a girl.

UNLOCK THE CODE

Flashback to London, heres a few a looks from the British Museum, which holds some of history's most amazing ancient artifacts.

From Greek to Egyptian, the collection educates one with the world's most precious gems.

Probably the most impressive piece in the collection was the Rosetta stone. To think how much we came to know of the ancient world from this one rock is amazing.

The answers are all there, we just have to know where to look...

Life AFTER

The brother Mike is in for another round with his life and death inspired collection. Homestretch with Mike as we come full circle to wrap the lower leg. Diving into the transitions that lead to the afterlife, there is a beauty that lies in death... rebirth.

The skull plays its part to symbolize mortality and the notion of memento mori, while the butterflies symbolize rebirth and growth.
