#REPRESENT #THE MAYOR Atlanta, GA 2017

September 04th, 2017 | Category: Graffiti / Street Art,Hip Hop Culture,Pressed,Travel,Video

During the #Grafiteras trip in Oakland I got word that our Crewest Studios locked down a few walls for our team to paint in Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles. The timing couldn’t have been better! I was already in the states and client just had to make the flight switch. My schedule was open and ABC studios covered all expenses. Gotta love when those gigs come in because the hotels are fly, transport is taken care of, and you can work with quality materials and hire a your team. The mission to rock a fun, and colorful letter piece that captures the essence of the show and characters. Hip Hop is a huge element in the series #TheMayor and I drew from the culture that bred me. This was my second time in Atlanta a growing and booming city. I love how green it is too! ¬†The heat not so much. Not too long ago my family moved here and I was so happy I got a chance to see them once job was complete. It was an awesome trip and job! —- Thank you ABC, Crewest Studios, Richie, Sean, and Paul for all your help on this wall. Shout out to The Mayor premieres October 3rd on ABC!

The job perks. After them long and hot days at the wall hitting the pool was a must! The Marriott hotel was amazing!

Last time I was in Atlanta I flew in did a job and flew out. I did not get a chance to check out the street art scene. Once job was approved I hit the streets in search of walls, Atlanta has some great spots! Would love to return and paint at one of their festivals.

Thank you Atlanta! Thank you family! Till next time…

VISCERARTE MAGAZINE LAUNCH

June 30th, 2014 | Category: Community,Ecuador,Graffiti / Street Art,Pressed

Now that I am back in Ecuador I can get started on a few other projects + take a nice break from the busy bee mode of the NY grind. I was invited last weekend for the magazine launch of Ecuador’s first official graffiti/street art magazine VISCERARTE¬†”revista de arte urbano” -¬†¬†The folks who run the magazine have been clicking away at many of the graffiti events in Quito I’ve attended. I met them earlier this year when Abusa Crew was in town. They are a lovely couple Alex, and Eli who’s love for the urban artform in their city has turned into a print project all their own. I want to give a special thanks to them for taking on the publishing world here in Quito to help document the movement through words, and photography. There’s some nice things going down in this city it’s nice to see it unfold in person. Here’s some flicks of the magazine launch at El Centro Contemporaneo in Quito. Participating artists like La Ratona, Jason, Bonice, Enaone and more…

TOOFLY ON UNIVISION! “DESPIERTA AMERICA” 4.14.11

April 13th, 2011 | Category: Day in the Life,Pressed,Uncategorized,Video

Whoa…did I make it on the latin network? Univision interview airing on Thursday morning nationwide over 100+ cities. ( “Despierta America” 7am-10am Channel 41) Many of us grew up with this channel because our abuelas, mamis, and tias watched their novelas, our abuelitos, papis, and tios caught the futbol. Occasionally we all sat around to watch that silly man Don Francisco on Sabado Gigante too. My family has come a long way. This one is for you Papito lindo!

THE ART HUSTLE – DROPS JULY 1st!

June 20th, 2010 | Category: Art & Design,Pressed

Cardhacks Drops The Art Hustle artist trading cards July 1st 2010! Sneeky Peek…

Art Hustle_Toofly


The Art Hustle is a set of art and artist-based trading cards produced by The Cardhacks and manufactured in the USA by SideKick Media. The set is very much a collaborative effort with artists, and exhibits an international group working in multiple disciplines, including street art, toy art, kaiju, sketch, illustration, painting, aerosol art, poster art, collage, digital art, sculpture, photography and more.

What makes The Art Hustle so cool is that it gives you a completely new experience as a collector; the set is a tangible exhibition of talent that you can experience and learn about. You also have a chance to get an original piece of art! Plus, being inspired by trading cards produced in the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s, the set offers up some vintage-inspired flavor including chipboard card stock and the much-loved wax paper wrapper.

Price: $126.00/Box ( Boxes are limited! ) – quick facts below:
