Miami-Times-4-020

2013 was one of the best years to date. Looking forward to what 2014 has in store….

This Art Basel was the first time I assisted in the making of a mural. Following street artists and constantly watching the process, i’ve always wanted to get my hands dirty. Who better to assist for the first time than the talented, Jose Mertz? The mural, entitled Gilda, was completed entirely with pilot markers. Yes. A mural with a marker.

The name, Gilda, is inspired by Jose’s eldest sister, who passed away earlier that week. Thanks to all of the friends and family who came by to support the mural during its progress. We are so thankful and fortunate to have had such great energy surrounding this piece, it is so much more than what can be seen by the human eye….

Not only did I push scaffolding, get dirty and help everything run smoothly, but I (of course) documented the entire thing. Check out the photos after the jump… and look out for the video in the weeks to come. You can see “Gilda” on the side of Brisky Gallery, located at 130 NW 24th St, Miami FL 33137 in the Wynwood Art District.

 

Kool Keith stopped by to say whats up.

Peep my Tumblr for more shots, as always.
