It’s almost been a year since I painted my first mural, so I decided to collect them all and publish them in one super-duper mural project. The murals have largely been created for Zizzi, who use an artist in every restaurant they open or refurbish and always set a brief which is relevant to the [...]
This is my new 8′ x 20′ hand painted mural in Miami, Florida, for Art Basel week. The mural is of Tracy and Raymond. Both are friends of mine from San Francisco. Raymond stopped by my studio to chat the other day as I was finishing up his portrait, on the right. He had cut [...]
Dan Seaton Brown must have a soft drink addiction. Seriously, he created this stunning portrait of Michael Jackson using only discarded aluminum cans. It was all for a good cause, of course: promoting the opening of the Michael Jackson movie screening at the Regent in Los Angeles. Wink wink.

Brad Eastman (aka Beastman) has made my running errands around Darlinghurst, Sydney days all the merrier thanks to his recent blue faced mural which graces The Recordstore’s side wall. It looks amazing on the street, so swing past the corner of Arnold Lane and Goulburn Street for a mesmerising geeze.
