THE KIRK REEVES MURAL
I just finished painting a 10 by 38 foot mural of Kirk Reeves, the street performer who passed away in 2012. The project is on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon.
For more about the making of the mural, check out the articles and videos in this section of my blog. This one describes why this memorial was so important for me to make, this one gets into how the mural was funded, this one talks about why Kirk isn’t wearing a Mickey Mouse ear hat, and this video shows process shots.
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.
