About Project Atrium
Project Atrium, MOCA’s bold series, features site-specific and site-sensitive installations by emerging and mid-career artists. The unique placement, dimensions and scale of MOCA’s Haskell Atrium Gallery provide a compelling challenge to the chosen artist—a call to reinvention and active collaboration with the architecture of the museum on a monumental scale.

Puritan Mill, Beneath the the Setting Sun, November 14, 2012- January 31, 2013

I recently completed a mural for the 2012 Living Walls Conference in Atlanta. The walls are below a train trestle on the beltline in Reynoldstown, Atlanta, Georgia on Fulton Tr. between Chester and Holtzclaw. It was really great working in Reynoldstown and I am so thankful for all the people who came out and helped paint. Special thanks to Living Walls for inviting me to participate--So far this conference has been my favorite project to date.
I hope you'll take a moment to check out the other artists involved in the conference and please take a moment to support future projects by donating to Living Walls.
The Living walls team has been putting together some really great videos of the artists working-Click below to get started on the Living Walls Vimeo site.

About This Book
Stickers features approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Cheap, democratic, easy to "tag," and not always fast to fade, the sticker has been an ever-present medium—from the New York and London underground punk scene to skate culture and political expression. Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium, Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. Stickers includes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon and Jenny Holzer; street artists such as Banksy, Neck Face, and Barry McGee; and amateur artists who "tag" the streets anonymously. With texts from artists and writers, including Swoon, Stanley Donwood, ESPO, Clayton Patterson, Carlo McCormick, and Michael Betancourt, Stickers illustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. Packaged in an oversized clamshell box, the deluxe edition features 23 large, original die-cut stickers, many of which are signed by the artist.
