This piece was inspired by a late night commute on my bike. I was headed downtown on Harrison Avenue crossing East Berkeley Street… I’m pretty sure there was a deep jazzed-out instrumental resonating in my headphones.

Painted in memory of Keith E. Elam (1961-2010) aka Guru of Gangstarr. Their cds were on heavy rotation whenever I wanted to focus on new work. They were and still continue to be one of hip-hop’s greatest groups of all time.

Finding out about this event the day of, gave me little to no time to plan for the difficulty the acquired space had in store. However, the problem that stood right in the middle of everything later became a clever solution.

Painted in a space one could only dream of and a skip away from the subject matter. This piece was created as a representation of the Big Dig, one of the most expensive highway projects in the U.S.

This homage to the community was shelved for several years before getting the green-light. Finding a large high-traffic space where anyone could see it was a key, yet a slow process. The wall which currently stands in Roxbury on Warren street, measures at approximately 17ft tall by 100ft wide. The mural was scheduled to be painted at the tail-end of summer 2014, during one of Boston's hottest weeks in history. The sun was relentless, and production took 4 days to complete, with the help of 2 other artists Byg & Kwest.
