Peace Rises – The Exhibit

18 Oct

For those of you good folks in Eellay, make sure to check out the Los Angeles Premier of the 2011 Peace Project on October 22, 6-10pm at 3830 Main St. Culver City, CA. 


 Through creativity and community, we can change the world.

Last year, The Whole 9 asked the question, “If one person can singlehandedly get World Peace Day on the calendar, what can an entire creative community do?” Our accomplishments have answered this question and shown that when creative people come together and take action – lives are changed, communities are changed, and countries can be changed.

On September 21st, World Peace Day, The Peace Project will lead a coalition of partners (including UNICEF), and get the country of Sierra Leone off the ground by providing 10,000 pairs of crutches and mobility devices to everyone in need throughout this entire post-conflict country (home to over 20% of the world’s amputees). This historic effort will be publicized around the world in an effort to show that dramatic change and sustainable peace is possible if people work together.

We gathered the momentum needed to launch this heroic effort last year with The Peace Project’s Call for Artists. This competition, the submission fees and the resulting sales from exhibit artwork displayed were instrumental in funding the early days of The Peace Project. This year, we’re launching another Call for Artists. Please join us and keep the momentum going.

 

A painting I made for Libya was lucky enough to be chosen for this event. It will also be making its way to the Bay Area on November 9th at the Swarm Gallery in Oakland. Might you kind folks join me?

These last few days have been a trip and half. So to catch you up to speed:

Loading up three 4ft x 8 ft panels into that damn Uhaul

finally done. time to kick off the grown man shoes and sleep for the next 3 days. thanks for coming along for the ride.

 

Above all, I’m grateful. I’m super humbled and blessed to have been a part of this experience. All day everyone kept asking me what I was feeling and I kept saying, “I just can’t believe I did that.” It’s weird, and maybe I shouldn’t be saying this on here but wutevvvaa..sometimes I super doubt myself. But don’t we all? I guess what I’m trying to say here is that you never know what you can accomplish. Just because you’ve never done it before, or just because the idea seems crazy doesn’t mean it can’t be done, doesn’t mean YOU can’t be the one to do it.

Anyway, I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone that has believed in my art and supported me along the way. Thank you Kendra and Sara Sperling. Thank you Mom and Dad, Alex and Carol. Don’t worry, I’ll have us all in Hawaii in no time.

Madonna for your Mama

14 Oct

Ok so here’s the deal. Less than 24 hours left until shit needs to be handed in. For some reason, Madonna is being a little asshole and not drying correctly. But after much stress (and ok I’ll admit tears), shit’s done and done. At the end of the day I just kept reminding myself that putting something out there at 90% is better than waiting until it’s 100%. Because while you’re waiting for that next 10% to happen, some else out there will put it out first. Done is better than perfect, riiiight. Enjoi!

Puttin down layer one..the start of a VERY long day

 

layer two's all set!

And no, this didn’t just take me a day. Remember those stencils that were twice my size I had to cut out? No fancy Shepard Fairey interns cutting for me over here. Till next time! Stay clean, kids!
