Alter by Traz and CISA Crew
Arte Muerte Exhibition @ CISA Gallery 2009
My birthday is in December. It's a month where I reflect on the year, probably, earlier than most do. I think most start reflecting after XMAS when the hooplah is over, wallets empty, and scales read 5 more pounds.

The exhibit runs through Jan 2nd.
ArtPrize was a no go. There was not a meeting of the minds. Was concerned about lack of insurance + location. This was my proposed installation. I call it "Sadatay"
View of installation for Unusual Suspects exhibit organized by Risk and Bill Weyna. It was a great exhibit.

Posing with locals from Guthrie neighborhood of East Chicago, IN. This wall (bldg.) was home to graffiti art since 1985. It was demolished last year for the "North Harbor Project". We called it the Maravilla Wall after Mr. Maravilla. Anyone who's painted on it is one of "Los Maravillosos". Maravilla in spanish means miracle. So I am one of the miracles!

Painted on the "Aerosol Wall" this weekend with friends from Chicago, Indianapolis, and members of my crew.
The "Aerosol Wall" is one of Chicago's public painting walls. T-Sel oversees the activity at the wall to ensure high quality productions.
This wall was a study piece in the 90's for graffiti writers. At that time, it was wrapped by "Aerosol Crew" whose members included Solo, Dzine, Casper, Tsel, Disrok.

Chilling with my lil' brother Michael @ studio. Friend of mine Analu was taking some photos for a project she's working on documenting Midwest graffiti pioneers.
I love this picture. My lil' bro 30 yrs. younger than me. I can only imagine what's going thru his head in this shot. He draws a lot. He's observing some paintings I have on the wall. My studio is located on the 2nd floor of my parents used furniture store. I wonder how many times he goes up and checks things out, you know.

My 2 pieces are in the white frames in the center. I did not take any of the photos.
I was not able to attend the opening. I found the photos on Flickr. Thanks to Luna from Crewest Gallery who's been merciless in promoting/updating their mailing list on photos and stories online.
These are from "The Sharpie Show" in Los Angeles organized by The Crewest Gallery
Zach de la Rocha (Rage Against Machine)
George Clinton had some artwork in the exhibit.
This is my contribution to the show. I did 2 similar pieces.

Ish, Diana, and Carmen @ Hinkle Fieldhouse
Last week was in Indianapolis prepping space and hanging show for Feb. 6th opening. Steph's cousin treated me to a game @ Hinkle Fieldhouse in Butler University. It was a trip back in time. The fieldhouse has had very little cosmetic upgrades in 60 yrs. Even the energy was electric.
