I love the AWOL crew; not only are they from Brunswick (always a bonus), but their work is outstanding, both as a crew + individually. I’ve loved watching them over the past few years, + I am constantly amazed at what they put up, whether individually, in pairs or as a whole crew, on walls + buildings ,+ in exhibitions. So this week I was very excited to paint my first collaboration with Lucy Lucy, one of the AWOL crew.
I love Lucy Lucy’s elegant feminine characters, draped in gorgeous patterned textiles + often arranged around Slicer’s striking shards, Deams’ geometric lines, + other AWOL crew members’ fantastic aerosol work. I have often thought that her characters would work well with mine, + was stoked when we were offered the chance to work together on a wall for the launch of Dean Sunshine’s Land of Sunshine book launch.
After planning the design together, we hit the wall. I was surprised that we built our work in a similar way, at a similar pace. After many fun hours, we completed the piece, which will be unveiled at the launch this Thursday 15 November. The finished wall is superneat!
To see it in person, check out the Land of Sunshine book launch Facebook event page, register to attend, + get down to the warehouse this Thursday evening. It’s going to be an amazing night.
