I’m back from Italy, in Prato.
I was invited to paint a big fiber glass tube during a festival. I had 3 days, and new there will be the full moon on the main night.
Someone, one of the technician, told me that it was crazy how the front side of the tube was looking like a full moon at night, with the light projector inside the tube. I believed him ’cause even if was day light when i arrived, i could really see that the texture of this big fiberglass circle was close to the moon texture seen from far away…
So i worked on that, trying to build a dialogue with the moon. Paiting around her while waiting for her to be full.
“WORDS TO THE MOON”. Acrylic and spray, on enlightened fiberglass tube. 2010. ITALY
During the week i was preparing an exhibition in BROOKLYNITE Gallery, in NY brooklyn, i’ve been able to paint a big metal wall of a garage in Prospect heights…was so cold, but the sun was over me and the vibe was good..so i just spread some color for the people. U can see on the paint, that there is some light coming out from the broken wall, feeding the body, that with one hand, spray this light back on the wall.

Another wall i”ve been painting this week, brought me some great surprise.
on Malcolm x boulevard, brooklyn. while i was painting this kid and much more, came out of school, and start beating on the metal door close to this wall, and made awesome beatbox, and were dancing reaaal great, i loved that vibe.
I also met a 45 years old guy, passing by with a bike and a spray in a plastic bag, who asked me if he could tag beside my piece…i was amazed to see this guy (big up Dr.007) who may have started spray before i was born and was still an activist.
Much respect and love for the street !!!
