Was working as a muralist/sign painter throughout 2014 for Overall Murals- hand painted outdoor media company. Projects ranging from large scale detailed pictorial ads to commercial lettering signs and fine art projects.
In this project I got to explore interior design, and working with a specific predetermined aesthetic. The Brooklyn restaurant Woodland commissioned me to make images for decorating the environment. The work is themed around forest/trees, and is following an earthly palette of umber, sienna, and ocher, with limited color. I used this as a personal study of some of my favorite tree painters/paintings: Ivan Shishkin, Andrew Wyeth, Alexei Savrasov, Caspar David Friedrich. Main painting is in the central area of the restaurant, three mural paintings serve as restroom decoration.
I was commissioned by the punk band World Inferno Friendship Society to paint a banner for their halloween concert at the Warsaw Concert Hall in brooklyn. Derived from the conceptual/lyrical content of the music, the imagery is mimicking the Citizen Kane election scene, with a pumpkin puppet as the politician.
Assisted Sean Mellyn in the early stages of his Madava's World at Dover Plains Mural.
Was employed by Evergreene Architectural Arts, primarily to make the murals for the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. The design is largely baroque, and the paintings are based on Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's frescos. The process of work at the company is heavily grounded in time and efficiency: the labour is spread out between the studio artists. images below are showing the paintings in an unfinished state, murals were eventually completed/refined by other painters.
