HITCHHIKER BACKGROUND INFO:
There is no better feeling in the world to me than going to a new city and painting a fresh wall! I’ll be the first to tell you (and those who have unfortunately met me) that I have some serious addiction problems. Dealing with addiction is not always easy. Being honest with oneself and to not be in denial about such problematic issues is the first step to recovery. I must admit now that I am addicted to traveling and painting. I just can’t stop doing each, and when I try to stop for small amounts of time I become crazier. This piece was more of a personal tribute and way of dealing with this addiction. It’s a honest reflection of what matters to me in my life and why I live each day! .
Cities edition (9) INFO: The texts on each of the 9 CITIES prints have been individually hand painted. ” I thought it would be fun to exchange the normal edition texts and insert 4 European cities that I recently visited these past 3 months. I hand paint (Paris, Rome, Berlin or London!) on each print. The romanticism of hitchhiking through Europe with a backpack filled with paint is something very close and personal to me. I have enjoyed doing this myself several times and thought It would be nice to reflect those experiences in this edition.”
