A few weeks back I had the pleasure of doing a mural for the Skid Row Housing Trust. Shepard Fairey and I collaborated on the mural. The mural was especially important to both Shepard and I. Not only did it allow homeless people to enjoy the same art on their walls as wealthy collectors. It was also the first permit issued for a public mural since the mural Moratorium had been lifted late last year. Both Shepard and I have had a controversial past with the city for illegal murals. Certain city officials said I would never paint legally in Los Angeles or ever be issued a permit. The murals themselves are a testament to issues of social justice and human rights on a few different levels.
