This project was conceived by Javier Betancourt, co-owner of Ocho Placas Tattoo in Miami, who wanted to put together a book showcasing some of the best young tattoo artists from around the world. We stepped in and worked on the logo, photo-correcting the massive amount of images he had collected, laying out the book in an organized manner, and then helping to find a great natural canvas cover stock with black foil debossing, and a smooth MacGregor paper stock for the inside pages. It was an extremely limited release, but we were excited to see how well it was received, even being recognized with a Florida Print Award. Thanks for the opportunity Javi! Special thanks to Joe Clary for the cool pics!
Amazing project we curated with New Era and Cool J’s, a local chain, bringing 4 of our artists’ visions onto hand embroidered snapback hats. Also put together a fun gallery show to highlight the hats and the artist’s works, titled “Locals Only” during Art Basel 2014. Thanks Abstrk, Atomik, Pucho and Quake for the amazing designs, Peter Vahan for the photos here, Felix over at Cool J’s for the vision, and Doron and Steven at Midpoint for allowing us the space for the show. We hope to be involved in more projects like this in the future!
Another Miami-themed mural painted in 48 hours for the new Midpoint development & Locals Only art show in the heart of the real Miami. Featuring Abstrk, The Cool Hand, Douglas Hoekzema, Astre74, Arive, Luis Berros, Pucho, Atomik, Quake, Bulk, and Brandon Opalka – amazing lineup, all Miamians! Thanks Doron, Steven Frazier and Jill Weisberg for being awesome.
Got this one done just in time for NASCAR’s final race of the season, the Sprint Cup at Homestead Speedway, which was actually won by #4 Kevin Harvick (to our relief, as we painted his number flying away from the other finalists’ numbers!) Rush job done in 1 looooong day of non stop painting by Quake and Rage. Special thanks to Jill Weisberg for making it all happen, and Kevin at the Speedway for accommodating us.
Another monumental wall painted a few years back in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Inspired by the Zombieland movie poster. Thanks to the whole team for pitching in, particularly Abuse, Enve, Evils, Quake, Arive, Hest, Hox, Pucho, Gere, Edge, Crome, Sefer and Kemo. And to David Lombardi for putting up with us throughout the process.
The HistoryMiami museum in Downtown Miami hired us to paint an entire wing of their museum with our own creative vision for a street art inspired show. The theme was simply “Miami”…All brushes, no spraypaint, a lot of fun all around. This wall was painted by (in order): Atomik, Santi, Abstrk, Quake, Luis Berros, Astre74, Pucho, and Arive. Special thanks to Brandon Opalka for curating this madness. Click on the top pic to view the entire wall!
Painted in 3 days with a team of 7 mural painters, all while American Eagle was shooting for a Spring Break campaign. But we got it done before the deadline, as usual. Original design by our good friend Lakwena in London. And special thanks to Teddy & Meghan Coleman for overseeing the project, flawlessly.
