We were back at Binkley's this month painting one of the classics, "Starry Night over Indy"! This was ABC Paint Party's first painting that debuted back in January of 2014 where we kicked off this fun venture at Binkley's. What an enthusiastic bunch of painters and all their artwork turned out amazing! A big thank you to Binkley's for having us again and we look forward to the next Paint Party at their establishment. Below are the pictures from this 3hour fun-filled event...check it out. Cheers, T
Now to catch up on some mural projects that I have completed recently... Namely REFINERY 46 and another piece for my buddies at BLACK CIRCLE BREWING.
First, I was contacted by Jesse at Black Circle to recreate one of their beer logos in large scale. We originally discussed painting this directly on the wall (and boy am I glad we went with the framed panel option!). This was a.. ahem.. complicated piece. I have always wanted to try something like, this because I really like the 8-bit retro video game look. The pixel art style proved to be a lot tougher than I thought it would be- But I eventually got the hang of it, finished up this framed piece, and installed it on the wall at the end of their bar. Make sure that you tell that you know the artist of that stunning piece next time you stop in for a beer!
They were also kind enough to refer me to the building owner, who, upon refurbishing this dilapidated building, wanted to complete the update by putting the name of this "new" property in bold lettering on the side of the building. He calls the place REFINERY 46, and it houses 3 business currently- along with BLACK CIRCLE BREWING and ELENS RUZ CUBAN CUISINE, there is also HOMESENSE HEATING & COOLING. This place has turned into a bright spot in an otherwise run-down neighborhood, and a sign of good things to come.. Just west of Keystone on 46th St, and now SUPER easy to find because of my handy work!
Pics of everything below, and more to come.. I have a lot of developing projects going right now!
