Project Street Art 2 was a grass roots, juried competition for ten mural spaces in Stroudsburg, PA. There were hundreds of submissions, with artists participating from as far away as Australia. My design was the only one selected unanimously by the entire jury. I also received a commendation from the mayor and city council. The finished piece is 14 feet tall and 18 feet wide, mediums are spray paint, stenciling, hand painting... and it is also UV reactive, i'm planning some night time displays for summer 2015!

Very stunning street art painting. I really like the "interaction" of the colors with the white wall. Also the little detail with the handprints at the bottom, nice idea.

Thanks! The handprints were actually a a spur of the moment thing, and became one of the best parts of the day and the piece. Each muralist had a small team of art student volunteers from the local high school to help us on painting day, and i really wanted a way to include them in the finished piece. Up to that point they hadn't gotten to play with the paint, but had spent the day helping put up huge stencil panels, moving ladders, passing cans and doing touch up. I needed a way to fill the foreground and ground the piece, and the inspiration came from joking around with one of the kids. All of a sudden we were making a huge mess, lol. It made it a lot more fun, and (unlike that time when i was a kid and put white paint handprints all over the trees in mom's yard) nobody got hollered at. ;)
