Got invited to be a part of a fun show at our local Barber Shop & Streetwear spot, Prime Cut & Sew! Prime Art! opens this Saturday, February 27th at 8pm. Come check out new works by TheEarwig22, Ryan Marquez, FIN, Erika Jaynes, K.U.T., AztecSmurf, JR, Steve Caballero, Mark Matlock & myself. Here's a peek of my Basquiat tribute piece. Hope to see you out tonight. Also, please excuse the missing house hardware...we're in the midde of repainting! Never a dull moment around here!) UPDATE 3/1: This piece is SOLD.
The intenational street pianos exhibit called "Play Me, I'm Yours!" is coming to Downtown Mesa this year, and I just got my acceptance email! So I will be working with a community organization, College Bound, to create a design for one of the 24 pianos, and then I will set out to make that vision a reality in time for my piano to hit the streets in March! I am so grateful to be a part of this project. Thank you once again to Mesa Arts Center for bringing yet another amazing exhibit to Mesa!
From the Street Piano's website: "Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. More than 1400 pianos have now been installed in 50 cities across the globe, from London to Lima, bearing the simple invitation Play Me, I’m Yours, and the project has already reached more than eight million people worldwide."
Stay tuned for my piano progress and the event grand opening! #streetpianosmesa
