I've been working on a couple of projects taking place in Jersey City. One is an INDOOR art show featuring artists that create beautiful outdoor work. It's taking place as part of Jersey City Artists Studio Tour. I'd love for fans of street art and public art murals to come see the installation. All info is on the flyer. You'll also see that I've created a new website, which is still under construction. You can go to the site and sign up for my mailing list though! I've also finally gotten onto twitter, which you can follow @madmadmedia

I've also had a new mural commissioned by Viaquenti School in downtown Jersey City, on Newark Ave. It's being painted by local artist Megan Gulick, and features a big purple octopus that's fallen in love with a yellow submarine, complete with a window that looks into the school! I'll add pictures once it's completed.

Thanks for keeping an eye on the blog. I know it's been a while since I've posted anything new, but more is coming!

The SAGE artists came back to 172 Newark to bring additional color to the whale's brick surroundings. Next time you walk by, see what new sea creatures you can find in the design. This entire piece was created with spray paint.

An update is coming soon featuring a new mural from Jersey City artist Megan Gulick...

Tiger Mural by Pawn & Eyesor is complete at 172 Newark Ave

After several weekends of painting, local artists PAWN and EYESOR have completed their mural behind 172 Newark Ave in downtown Jersey City (in the parking lot on 1st Street between Jersey Ave and Erie Street, just next to the Whale mural in the previous post).

Friends hung out, listened to music, ate lots of pizza and BBQ, and showed their support while the guys painted. Neighbors and shoppers stopped to take photos in front of the wall before it was even finished. It was really great to hear all the positive comments and praise from the folks that were surprised to see wild tigers in the middle of downtown.

The Jersey City Independent ran a story on the mural, complete with artist statements, additional photos, and video from Serringe/Element Tree, which is linked here:

Please comment. I like to know what you think!
I'll also add some photos of the mural during the stages of completion soon!

New Mural started by local artists...

Over the last couple of weeks, a new mural has been started in downtown Jersey City by local artists Pawn and Eyesor.

The work is created entirely freehand by spray paint, without stencils.

The artists will be completing the work over the next few weekends, weather permitting. Please come by to the site of the Whale Mural if you'd like to hang out and watch the artists create their new piece.
