Rooftop Legends 2011

20 Oct

2 weeks ago I painted at the Rooftop Legends event, was really fun painting with friends and enjoying the session. The rooftop is filled with pieces and art along with a mini skate park that kept it fun and active throughout the event. If you’re in the LES go check out the rooftop space- its really inspiring!

This piece is inspired by my brother in law- Joe who passed away 3 years ago. Whenever I paint walls, butterflies often come to visit me. I feel like its Joe coming to say hi, I see you:) It makes me feel so comforted.  Hence the title “The Butterfly Effect”.

Thanks to JOSEPH PAIS for putting this dope space together for artists to come and do their thing…
