Remi/Roughe, Scott Sueme, Joker and I were commissioned by Moda Hotel/Vancouver to produce 2 large scale murals for the exterior walls of their hotel and this would be #2. This was the larger of the two walls and a bit of a challange due to the fire escape, so the mural was designed based on these obsticles. Sueme managed the lower half of the wall as Remi took over the left side so Joker and I could merge the right side. I cant express how seamless and easy it was to work with all three of these cats. They understood that the overall result is a cohesive wall where we all could shine. Egos down - styles up. The overlaps and inter weavings of each others works throughout the mural are those special points where partnership and conversations merge.
Many special thanks go out to the team at Montan Colors North America, Inc. for the paint sponsorship. The MTN94 and Alien paint supplies helped to keep the mural bright and cohesive and we can’t thank yall enough!
There were many photographers documenting the creation of both murals. Here are some sets via Flickr to sort through and view the process.
