iPhone grab of a 4x6 print of me (circa 2001) standing in the men’s bathroom of Barney’s New York, taking a selfie with my beloved Leica Minilux, one of my favorite cameras of all time. My new favorite camera of all time is my Fuji X100F, about the same size as that Leica and just as amazing. Small cameras and selfies were my bag long before they became chic. Shit, I’m even wearing a messenger bag, before anyone even heard of it.  #tbt #leicaminilux #ishootfilm #fujinps160 #imissthatfilm #imissthatcamera #idontmissthatyear #aheadofmytime #backintime #vintagefuturism #martymcfly #mybag

Myself, @smitheone & Dhear @jesusbenitezf, Spring 2012
Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro campus, Queretaro, UAQ  Mexico
Curated by the Board Dripper during the #boarddripperfestival 3.
__________________________________________________
This was my first true trip to Mexico as well as my introduction to the work of Smithe and Dhear. I was quite taken back by their graciousness and talent as they both poses an indicative style and fantastic painting technique all their own. I always felt like this colab fell to the wayside as far as attention goes. It still is one of my favorite 3 man pieces to date. __________________________________________________

Vue intéressante du mur réalisé par Augustine Kofie @keepdrafting à Grenoble en 2016 pour @grenoblestreetartfest en collaboration avec @spacejunkartcenters. Cette peinture s’inscrit au milieu d’un quartier aujourd’hui en pleine démolition, Villeneuve, construit en 1972 selon les principes de Le Corbusier. Un beau mur de 11 étages et de 25 mètres de haut 👀👀👀

Recent capture of my Grenoble mural with a much clearer view with the recent demolition of the unused parking structure across the way. __________________________________________________
‘‘L’esprit Nouveau’ [Completed June, 2016]
Maison des Buttes of Villeneuve in Grenoble, France. 
11 stories. Roughly 27 meters x 15 meters. 
Painted in participation of @grenoblestreetartfest and @spacejunkartcenters with support by Actis and the Mayor of Grenoble. 
__________________________________________________
Villeneuve, originally built in 1972, a housing complex designed and built on #LeCorbusier theories of 'utopia' and 'the radiant city’. The location of 50 Gallery Harlequin is under a major rehabilitation, worth over 8.6 million Euros, which is led by Actis to improve the quality of life, reduce energy consumption, open the village to the city. This major upgrade prefigures the renovation of the entire neighborhood Arlequin in the coming years. This mural commission comes to give a final touch to the renovation of the building.

Workflow, [Completed in September, 2017] 
Acrylic polymer on drywall and exposed cement. 
Interior lobby of the C3 creative space campus designed by @gensler_design
5800 Bristol Parkway, Culver city, CA.
Commissioned by IDS realty.
__________________________________________________

I created this mural installation in dialogue with the staircase, so that both 
mural and staircase became seamless parts of the building’s whole. I played off of 
the staircase’s ascending steps and the 37° angle of its rails, creating diamond-
like reactions that crisscross and traverse the space.  Fractals bounce off their 
respective shapes, like ideas in a think tank, manifesting the ethic of worksflow: 
a harmony of orchestrated and repeated systems of business activity.  The rhythmic 
interlocution of shapes and patterns represents trajectory, technology and 
expansion, a visual manifestation of creative collaborations to come.

4 select legal size clipboards from fall 2016.
15.5 x 10 inches.
Acrylic on found pressed hardboard/ masonite clipboards. Finished in satin varnish. ◢ Purchase link in bio. ...........................................................................
This collection here is from the fall of 2016 and inspired some creative directions for my ‘Build from memory’ collection in OpenSpace Paris. I am pleased to share a small assortment of 5 legal size clipboards to the public via Keepdrafting.com for a short time. ...........................................................................
It’s been about a decade since I began to consciously make an effort to collect and paint on vintage clipboards. They were and are treated like raw, quick sketches of color and structural play. Many have gone on to inspire canvas and mural works of mine as others fall to the wayside in the studio. ...........................................................................

Now builder blush, 2017
24 x 36 x 1 in.
Found paper, acrylic, screen-print, ball point pen, graphite and white-out on cradled birch panel.  Sealed in archival matte varnish. Framed by artist with found yardsticks.
...........................................................................
For the group exhibition COMPENDIUM at TREASON Gallery, Seattle. @treasongallery 
Opening October 5th, 2017:
...........................................................................
COMPENDIUM is an exploration of the contemporary abstract movement post graffiti. Utilizing blends of color, line work, and space as subjects, each artist’s unique approach to their work is weighted in the individualism and self-determination that graffiti culture fosters. Graffiti, although generally frowned upon, has provided an outlet for the exploration of the individual’s expression. Cultivating a sense of self and independence, the once vandal evolves into something appreciated and sought after. Honing their skill set in often times illegal environments, these artists quickly expanded on their abilities to convey emotions through gestural abstracted imagery.

@jonathanlevineprojects is known for introducing the West Coast lowbrow aesthetic to the East Coast. With a particular style, vision, and palette influenced by comic books, B-movies, advertising, and car culture, the lowbrow aesthetic is both a cultural reality and a romantic encapsulation of how The West is seen from afar. It represents eternal sunshine, a way of life, the possibility of escape, and a fresh start. 'East Looking West' is a stylistic melting pot showcasing West Coast natives and transplants. Revisiting our roots, we focus the lens on the West Coast and take a look at what is happening now.  __________________________________________________
