New Mural: LOVE IS PARADISE

LOVE IS PARADISE, site specific mural, 30 x 12 feet, mixed media on wood, 2015.

"Love one another with all of your hearts and do not fear, do not hold back. For the more you give, the more returns to you." - Dr. Brian Weiss

These words inspired the creation of my recently commissioned mural for the Wooden Walls Project, part of @SeaChangeap, right around the corner from the historic Carousel House on the Asbury Park Boardwalk, New Jersey. I had so much fun painting there over the weekend right in front of the beach. Thanks to the wonderful ladies of Parlor Gallery for representing me, the fantastic staff of Madison Asbury who also organized the project and the lovely community of Asbury Park.

KNOCKING YOU OUT WITH “SUMMER LOVIN” AT PARLOR GALLERY
 THE COMBINED FORCES OF CONTEMPORARY POP & STREET ARTISTS Asbury Park, NJ (JULY 1, 2015) Parlor Gallery is pleased to announce their upcoming curated Summer Group Exhibition “Summer Lovin” which features an explosive array of artists for whom the landscape of Pop Culture feeds their artistic drive and by doing so reflects the multi-layered visual experience we all live in. Parlor Gallery and the artists have curated a colorful, witty and contemplative collection of new works for this exhibit. Although working in different media and environments, all of the featured artists have been deeply inspired by the urban landscape. The work of the artist Indie184 is quickly becoming one of the most recognized both on the streets and in galleries and museums worldwide. Influenced by abstract expressionism and pop art, her paintings are raptures of colors and textures fused with her original graffiti, street art imagery and designs, juxtaposed with personal messages. In conjunction with her debut at Parlor, Indie184 will be painting a mural on the historic Asbury Park Boardwalk as part of the arts and mural initiative “Sea Change AP” which is co-curated by Parlor gallery and funded and sponsored by Madison Marquette.
