IT'S MY BIRTHDAY ! CHECK THIS OUT !

MY FIRST MURAL OF THE YEAR ! CHECK OUT THE IMAGES BELOW...

I got to be a part of a really cool concept restaurant in Los Feliz the other weekend. El Chavo got together with The Most Famous Artist to curate an amazing variety of local street artists to take over the restaurant and give it a new look. This was my first mural ever in a restaurant and pretty much 3rd mural I've ever done and it was so much fun! I got to meet so many great artists and saw a few old Friends as well. The street art community is so cool to me and its a very very small world as well. I had a blast doing my piece for this project and it was a great way to start 2016. I look forward to doing much much more this year and can't wait to show you all!  

HERE'S A FEW PHOTOS OF MY "LOS BEATLES" MURAL IN PROGRESS AS WELL AS A FEW OTHER IMAGES FROM THE "EL CHAVO PROJECT".

Jersey City Street Art

I got to go back home to Jersey City, NJ for a few days and saw some pretty cool new and old street art. This huge 147 foot Shepard Fairey mural is up a few blocks from my old high school and right underneath a very old KAWS tag. It would have been cool to have something like that to walk by coming home from school, I did get to see the KAWS one in high school thou! Apparently there will be a graffiti museum across the street from this location. There may even be a ghost balloon lurking around...

Come on by the Street Art Fair at Siren Studios 1050 N. Orange Dr. Los Angeles

I ENTERED THE BE-STREET "BOOTLEG BART" CONTEST YESTERDAY!

I ENTERED MY SUBMISSION FOR THE BE-STREET "BOOTLEG BART" ART COMPETITION YESTERDAY. THE SIMPSONS AND BART ESPECIALLY HAVE ALWAYS BROUGHT ME GREAT JOY. I GREW UP WITH THEM, THEY'RE LIKE ANOTHER FAMILY TO ME, I THINK IT'S SAFE TO SAY THEY HAVE BEEN LIKE THAT FOR MANY OTHERS TOO. THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO GET INVOLVED IN AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE OTHER SUBMISSIONS. MY SUBMISSION WAS A PLAY ON BACK TO THE FUTURE 2, ANOTHER AMAZING 90's PIECE OF POP CULTURE. BARTY McFLY FLOATING THROUGH TIME ON HIS HOMER BOARD, ANTI GRAVITY DONUTS ATTACHED AND HOMER OF COUSRE TRYING TO GET A PIECE OF ONE.

WISH ME LUCK.

Finished work on a KAWS tribute fireplace mural today.

I've always been a fan of KAWS, especially since he grew up in the same city that I did. So when I was approached to do a KAWS style fireplace mural I was super pumped. I worked on this piece for roughly 65 hours over 8 days. This was my first mural of this size, pretty much my first mural at all. Come back and check on my page as I will be adding shots of the progress over that week as well as some cool time lapse footage of the job.

UNCLE KARL !

Decided to bring one of my favorite idols into Wicky's World the other day. He is such an amazing   human being, well I'm not sure if he is human...

Karl is an amazing photographer amongst many other things, but he looks just as amazing in front of the camera.  In this image you see my extremophiles staring on in awe at Karl as if the whole world stopped in his presence. I am not sure who the photographer was, it could have been Karl himself but if not, thanks for the great image for me to remix. On a side note, i think i may have scanned it wrong...
