The crosswalks were painted over the course of 3 days using the City’s roadmarking tools, traffic paint and equipment. I only designed a portion of a section in advance and trusted my ability to ‘play jazz’ with all the giant stencils of symbols and letters while on-site. My mission was to achieve a balance as far as ‘weight’ and color goes, but also to find patterns and new symbols along the way through configuration. Big shout out to the city workers who assisted me: Chris, Dave and Gary! Painted for the City of Lancaster in collaboration with the Museum of Art and History, curated by Museum Manager Andi Compognone.
‘The Sunset Experience’ // I painted and added my touches to 14 locations along the Sunset Strip - in collaboration with Gehl - the project aims to make Sunset Blvd. a safer place to walk, welcoming pedestrian interaction and engagement. The project was commissioned by the City of West Hollywood.
