Let It Grow / Historic Farmer’s Market

Shawn, Craig and I all applied for a collective grant to run a mural program with youth in Halifax on the Historic Farmer’s Market. We were successful and received a generous grant from the 4C’s Foundation. While Shawn and Craig were in New York, I worked on gathering together a group of kids to work with us. Since we’d done so much work with Inglis Elementary, we already knew a lot of kids there. I also went to Citadel High and found some people that seemed interested. We ended up with a really great group of kids ranging in age from 12-17. We got together a few times before we started painting to share food, hang out and plan. We ended up painting over three days and it came together really successfully. A HUGE Thank You to the 4C’s for making this possible! And to all who contributed: Nora and Kelly Featherstone, James and Chris Davy, Marlon Perez, Thanasi K., Bryson V., Carlos R., and Nick M.

Here are some process photos:

Let It Grow / Brooklyn #2

Here are two more murals they painted. The first includes a portrait of our dearĀ friend Chris, as a memorial piece. When the property manager of the buildings they were painting on heard the story, he asked them to paint a memorial piece for his friend who had died while surfing. They started it at night, and when they came back the next night, Obey had put up a piece on the wall above theirs. Both are around the corner of Meserole and Waterbury in Bushwick.

Let It Grow / IDC / Brooklyn

Craig and Shawn spent June in NYC, and spent a lot of time painting. They collaborated with several other visual artists and performers in the IDC Art Show at AMOS in Bushwick. They covered the inside of the gallery in 24 hours. Here are some photos from the show:

Let It Grow / Shawn’s Work for the Canada Games

This is a large wall mural that Shawn was hired to paint for the Canada Games, along with three other artists. The mural is much bigger than this photo, but this is the part that Shawn painted. We’ll post a full image soon. It will be installed on the wall of the Pavilion facing the skate park. We are really excited about this and so proud of Shawn! He has INSANE spray painting skills.
