I had an opportunity to get involved in an awesome February art project at the Lone Star Saloon. I’m honored to have been invited to sling paint with the likes of Charlie and Ricky.
It's about five feet tall, with a latex paint base and acrylic paint markers. The piece was designed to stand alone minimalistically, so that it will work in collaboration with Steve Pi’s rather amazing video artistry. The idea is to display various video sequences across it. I can't wait to see what Steve will do with it this Wednesday 01/31/2018 (starts at 7pm)!
This was a super fun project conceived by Charlie and made real through collaboration. What a completely pure experience!
Thanks again, Charlie, for the invitation.
Several base coats of latex were applied until it was just right (and we ran out of light grey paint).
Here is my temporary tattoo-head! We used a projector to speed up the process. The piece was done in one afternoon. We left off most of the contour lines in order to leave a video canvas.
Here is the finished mural with no video. It will be up on the wall through the month of February 2018.
See it live at the Lone Star Saloon - 1354 Harrison Street 94103.
