Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to help Los Angeles-based artist MR44 install an indoor mural at the beautiful new Beer Belly Long Beach location in Downtown Long Beach. 44 executed the wall swiftly and expertly like the pro he is! Here are a few photos. [See More]
Here’s a nice video about public art in Long Beach, which features several POW! WOW! LONG BEACH murals from both the 2015 and 2016 festivals as well as a new indoor mural by The Draculas (Jeff McMillan & Gary Musgrave) the only artists who have participated in both years of the festival. The video is by Scott Nichols of Sickboat. Via Supersonic Art.
A new 3 day music festival launches in Long Beach this weekend and it looks to be absolutely epic! Presented by KCRW and produced by a group of super talented and accomplished Long Beach-based musicians, find out more at the Music Tastes Good website.
Some more great coverage of the recent POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 mural festival I helped produce, via Havoc TV. This clip features incredibly talented Hawaii-based artist Defer, who really has a lot of great things to say about the event, and really nails how much extra work goes into it. It also features amazing French artist Kashink, who I was lucky enough to meet during the event. There’s a chat super-accomplished photographer, Martha Cooper, who was also in Long Beach, documenting the event. And last but not least, a visit with my new friend Pantonio, who painted at the wonderful Aquarium of the Pacific.
