This 2ft x 3ft canvas (image below) is one of many pieces that was displayed and sold at my exhibition in Virginia in December of 2012.

  2. aksis2 says:

    I have spray paint experience (one poster) and I know how difficult and risky it is. It is an amazing technique, and you do absolutely amazing work. I love all your collection.

  3. Makes me think of the portrait of the Afghan girl … powerful!

    Lovely! Congratulations!

  11. F. Mohr says:

    These works are so awesome ! Look at the hair on this little girl….How do you do that! I have a little girl coming in 12 weeks and I would love to have you produce a portrait of her one of these days.

  12. rika9 says:

    I love the hair texture. Just curious, (and I appologize if you’ve been asked this a million times) do you work from photographs or sketches when you make your stencils?

  13. You are having such fun unwrapping one memorable gift after another for us.

  24. puresusan says:

    Hauntingly beautiful. Any time I see a fellow artist create something that speaks to my soul, I give a standing ovation! One cannot claim to create great art without speaking to another’s heart. You create great art.

  34. Shari Kelley says:

    Your work is so beautiful!

  35. Cardin Lee says:

    I really like the contrast between the sharp lines in her hair, compared with the soft glint that seems to reflect off her face. The shadow at the corner of her lip almost seems to turn her expression into one of a grimace. Nice work!

  36. Wow, this is a beautiful piece of work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. matewhawk says:

    Loving your work mate! Reminds me a lot of the street art that decorates my city (Bristol UK) Keep it up!

  38. Wow, this is amazing! You do beautiful work with spray paint. I never even knew something like this was possible.

  39. I have to say this is absolutely gorgeous. Green with envy here as I’d be lucky to spraypaint a “for sale” sign without messing it up.

  40. My brother lives in Williamsburg…. I’m sending him this link. Thank you!

  41. fromthericefields says:

    Wow I like this one, it’s very nice and well done!

  45. mightwar says:

    I just love the detailing of the hair, as it creates such movement. Stunning image.

  46. JWB says:

    That image portrays a great deal of frustration. Excellent work.

  47. belladonna23 says:

    I can see that you get so many comments that you probably don’t have time to read them all, but I must say, this is absolutely amazing… my mother is an artist herself so I grew up loving and appreciating art. The way you construct such moving and detailed images is by far something incredible.

    • urbanwallart says:

      I was a businessman for a long time. I have my MBA from a top school. It didn’t feel right. Art found me and my wife was very supportive of my ideas. She was right!!!!

    It’s beautiful.
