Cardinal

This hangable work of art is raised off the wall by a 3” wooden frame that follows the outline of the work. Adhesive vinyl and acrylic block print make up the image. The title of Cardinal refers to the four cardinal directions. The image is an abstraction of the human face, a personal totem that is used as a vehicle for artistic learning through process and repetition over time.

YENOM WEN

For this CoCA exhibition, the New Mystics explored what we discard, where we find value, and where we find “coolness.” This show navigated the space between being complicit in the current homeless struggle and reflecting on one’s disconnection between detritus and desire. MORE INFO

Life Cycle

Commissioned by Sound Transit in 2015 for University District’s Golden wall, dimensions 28′ by 4′. Acrylic paint on banner vinyl. Titled Life Cycle, this is an abstract representation through lines, color and personal iconography, of birth, death, returning to the earth and being reborn again, all the while the interconnectedness of everything persists.

Public Action

Speaking to the needs of our city and region. Expressing thoughts that have to be seen, heard and acted upon. A sense of permission emerges as one contributes clear messages into the public realm. We must do better to support the most vulnerable among us, we must recognize factually the displacement taking place in this area. We can not stand idly by as this effects all of us. Cardboard letters created with the help of Angel179 and NKO, approximate size 20′ by 20′. Posters made with adhesive vinyl or hand painted with acrylic paint, varying in size from 3′ by 4′ to 7′ by 16′ roughly.

Barcelona Legal

While traveling, finding connections in new lands lead us to this legal wall. Barcelona in the last few years outlawed graffiti, as a result, what once was a vibrant street mural and graffiti city has been somewhat cleaned up. The artists will never stop and thus new paths emerge to allow artists to create works in public. Acrylic paint and rollers on wall, approximate dimensions 22′ by 10′. Barcelona Spain, spring 2017.

Ibn Batouta mural

Mural painted as a gift to the neighborhood community of Ibn Batouta. Painted with amazingly brilliant acrylic paint, wanted to bring this paint back home. One coat light or dark would cover any other color. While painting here we experienced such completely generous, warm and welcoming people. Memories and friends were made, we can’t say thank you enough and hope to get back there again soon. Acrylic on wall, Ibn Batouta Tangier Morocco, spring 2016.
