Handpainted with spraypaint at MODA in North Bay Village, Miami. Fun surf and ocean references, painted by our guys Quake and Bluze. Special thanks to Brett for having a cool vision!
When Joey Scoreseze handed us one of his newest mixes, a strange reconstruction of various 70’s and 80’s zombie movie scores, we knew we had to handle the visual aspect of the album. It spoke to us, from beyond the grave. Our idea was a post apocalyptic Miami, from the vantage point of our very own street, and it just sort of escalated from there. Special shouts to Joey, Jerry Morris, and Quake, for coming together on this appetizing project.
The University of Miami reached out to us to create a visual narrative of their history, for their 90 year anniversary exhibit in the main library. We were given full access to their photo archives, and created this “timeline” using some of our favorites. Since it was set in the Richter Library, we decided to give it the effect of torn paper, collaged and layered to reflect the history of the school. And for the adjacent wall we created a grid consisting of 90 photos of various people who have either attended or worked at UM, spanning the full 90 years. A “job” that was very close to our heart, we felt that our passion for this project really showed through. Extra special thanks to Dave and Javier at Miami Sign Shop for the intensive installation work, Jose Cabrera at UM for the amazing insight and enthusiasm, and Peter Vahan for the tricky photographic documentation, it’s all about the U…!
Another quick painted mural in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami. A study in blue by Abstrk, Quake, and Hoxxoh. Special thanks to Chef Leo for reaching out!
The Cushy Gigs Crew was selected by Broward County for a mural grant as part of the exciting Broward 100 project, celebrating the county’s centennial with a mural in each of its cities. We were assigned to paint in the City of Sunrise, an extremely rewarding experience, as both city officials and Sunrise citizens responded with overwhelming enthusiasm for the project. The enthusiasm rubbed off, plenty of research was done, and the artists all brought their Sunrise inspired themes to one amazing collage-style wall. A special thank you to Leslie Fordham, Beth Zickar, Rosemarie Marco, Christine Pfeiffer, and Jill Weisberg for their hand in navigating through the red tape, as well as all of our artists that were involved: (in order) Hoxxoh, Abstrk, Atomik, Astre74, Angel Five, Erin O’Dea, Quake, Max Arive, Tati Suarez, Brandon Opalka, Luis Berros, & Rage Johnson. The piece is aptly titled “Welcome To Sunrise”….To be continued!

A few of our Cushy Creatives represented as part of the Miami Dolphins’ 50 year anniversary Artist Series. Each artist was given a blank helmet, with the idea that the finished products would be inspired in some way by our beloved home team. Thanks to Omar Khan for helping coordinate it, and to the participating artists from our crew (pictured above, in order): Quake, Crome, Omar Khan, Sniptease, Luis Berros, Angel Five, Hoxxoh, and Stephan Enmity.
Painted in Wynwood’s Arts District as part of the Beck’s Urban Canvas campaign. One of our artists, Abstrk, took care of the colorful and creative side, and Quake helped put together the bottle. We painted the wall completely with spraypaint, no stencils, as is our custom!
Quick mural painted in 2 days for the Florida Panthers’ post NHL draft party in Fat Village, Fort Lauderdale. The Panther’s requested something graffiti style, but clean, using their team colors, logo, and a fun illustration we created with the palm tree and hockey stick. Special shouts to Quake and Rage for getting it done properly, Jill Weisberg for coordinating, and the good people of Fat Village for being so accommodating under intense Miami Summer conditions.
Great project for the new DLA wing at the Federal Reserve Building in Doral, FL. Three themes: Movie Quotes, Multi-Cultural, and Comic / Anime Art. Two of our artists, Quake and Abstrk explored these themes, and also painted 5 of the columns as well as the inner & outer ring. We definitely felt like we created an energizing mood and environment in an indoor working atmosphere. Amazing to work with the fine people at G. Alvarez Studio, who were in charge of the architectural planning of the interior space. Looking forward to more stuff like this. Special thanks to Antonio, Diana, and Gigi, for all their help and support.
Hand painted mural in Hialeah, FL, just 200 feet from where the old Orange Blossom Special used to run back in the 30’s. Based off an old postcard we found and brought to life at about 25 ft x 60 ft. Special thanks to Abstrk and Quake for a job well done!
