It's a lovely experience walking around in such a beautiful city by yourself.
Вставайте, бегите из дома прочь,
Оставьте свой сон у порога.
Сегодня такая же звездная ночь,
Как когда-то была у Ван Гога.
"Todo a la vista" - FIRST FINISHED MURAL OF 2018
Starting the year in Koh Tao Thailand I think its an appropriate time to elaborate on my artistic process more publicly. I mainly paint with exterior house paint and stick to RED, YELLOW, BLUE, and WHITE paint. I mix my own colours and mostly avoid the use of oil based paints and spray paints due to the contamination it brings to my health and more importantly the global environment. I also use my painting process to prove the point that large scale beautiful paintings can be done without the need of large sums of funding. I am honoured to work with local and small businesses and do my best to always be considerate to their resources. I also try spending the funding locally as well, as I find it much more prudent to support local hardware stores than importing expensive contaminating supplies such as brand name spraycans. More than money I have constantly enjoyed the kindess and abundance of local businesses and the resources they are willing to offer me such as housing, materials and sometimes even great adventures touring their beautiful countries. I am honoured and greatful to all the support the people of the world have given me in my journey for so long and I credit my growth to all the people who have been involved in my process.
For this particular mural I would like to thank Matt and everyone from @crystaldivekohtao for their ongoing support of my art and the beauty of diving. I thank Fran for being a beautiful muse for my project. Thank you @thetalesofthemermaid for being an amazing mermaid. I thank @florebersat and @jochugonsebatt for helping me paint ( un abrazote gauchitas! espero cruzar caminos mil veces mas!) And more importantly I thank the local people of Koh Tao Thailand who have kept up a humble and beautiful environment for people of all over the world to come and enjoy.
