THE KIRK REEVES MURAL
These days, I’m painting a mural of Kirk Reeves, the Portland street performer and comedian who died in 2012. The mural is on the building located at 430 NE Lloyd but it’s on the wall that faces Grand. It’s approximately 10 by 38 feet, and it’s by far the largest painting I’ve ever created.
To learn more about Kirk and why I am painting him, go here, and, for more information about the funding of the mural, here. You can follow the evolution of the project in this section of my blog where I’m posting every other day or so, and you can also stop by in person. I sometimes work in the morning, but I’m there more regularly between 3 and 8 PM.
There will be a celebration to remember Kirk and to officially launch the mural on 15 August from 6 to 9 PM! More details soon.
I spoke at TEDxGeneva in April and this is the video. Currently, I’m working on a book that digs deeper into the issues addressed in this talk. If you want to be notified when it comes out, please email me and I’ll put you on my mailing list.
TALKINGS AND WRITINGS
Not too long ago, I talked with the Creative Insurgents crew about art marketing and copyright. The video of the interview is here. Also, my work was featured in a recent article on The Abundant Artist, and I was interviewed on Artist Think here.
These days, I’m working on a new collection of portraits. Cover/Flaunt explores the ways we minimize or emphasize different facets of our identities in order to navigate mainstream culture.
ON ART AND SCIENCE
Last year, as part of The Art Of Science Policy exhibition at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in DC, I was invited to speak at Visualizing Science Policy in 20x20 along with a number of other artists and scientists. You can read more about the event here on the AAAS site.
POSTERS AND PRINTS FOR SALE
This poster is one presentation of Crime Against Nature, the book I published in 2012. It combines an image of the work with the text from the book to create a punchy little meme that sums up the point of the project: that we don’t know as much about what is actually natural as we think we do!
In the last decade, I’ve been pleased to paint lots of fascinating people. If you’re looking for one in particular, check out this page listing all of my portraits by the subjects’ names.
