NUART Brewery: Stavanger, Norway

NUART 2012 was a blast! Thanks to Martyn Reed for sending these pictures, taken inside an old brewery, which was the scene for some of the finest (and quickest) murals I've seen. Here is the collaboration piece I did with Saber...

Here's the long wall leading up to the Star Skull..

NUART Norway: Mural in Progress

Ron and Beau are busy painting a very long wall in Stavanger, Norway ahead of tonight's opening of NUART Street Art Festival...

Perfect Scandinavian fall weather and just dark enough to project...

RIP Tony Goldman

Tony Goldman was a true visionary, with a golden heart and a wicked sense of humor. He will be greatly missed. The Miami Design District that he created will survive and prosper, and Tony's spirit will live on.

Tony gave space to many great artists to pursue their visions, and I am proud to be one of them.

Ron x London Pleasure Gardens

Ron is currently in London painting for the London Pleasure Gardens as part of the 2012 Olympic celebration. The project takes part of the City's east end and aims to regenerate the mainly industrial, poor area with new parks and infrastructure.  Due to its location to the ExCel center (where the Olympic awards ceremonies will take place) the Olympic committees put aside money for the various projects involved in the Pleasure Garden. 

Mural in Milan

Thank you, Italy! And thanks to The Don Gallery of Milan for their collaboration and logistical support!
