505 NM Labor Day 2011
Labor Day weekend I made the drive out to Albuquerque New Mexico for "BOMB THE CANVAS 4", a well respected and highly publicized event in Albuquerque. I was fortunate enough to be able to showcase a couple new vinyl pieces from a new series Im working on. Thanks to SUG RTD.
I can't find my photos from the friday evening canvas event. However, the entire holiday weekend was full of non stop wall action throughout the city of "Burque". The ACME wall on Saturday was full with about 50 graffiti artists/writers from around the country including: SUG(ABQ), PERISH(S.FE), KAPER(PHX), KING 157(CA), WANE COD(NYC), CAVS(NYC), PATH(ABQ), BANX(ABQ), TAZER(CO), SLOKE(TX), PERSK(ABQ), DISKO(ABQ), CLOSER(PHX), and SHOCK(S.FE) just to name a few.
A few back and forth trips up to Santa Fe, I was able to paint the other side of this cool little traveling camper that I actually painted one side of last summer during the Santa Fe Market. "Tortuga" as its owner Metta Ravenheart calls it, is hitting the road throughout the western states. Keep an eye out.
This year's trip and painted sides.
The 1st side I painted last year. Look in the archives from last August.
This photo was taken near Laguna Pueblo on the way home. Nothing like NM rains.
Great weather, food, people and good times all around. Looking forward to another 505 trip in the immediate future.
