Last week I spent 18 hours painting a brand new mural at The Gold Spike hotel in downtown Las Vegas, NV! This is exciting for a few reasons, one being that this is the first public mural of Yerman that anyone can see and second, Gold Spike is the official filming location for the next season of Real World! Here’s the news from Entertainment Weekly:¬†http://www.ew.com/article/2015/10/12/mtv-real-world-returning-las-vegas!

I’ve included a gallery below that details the scope of this project (it covers three walls) from sketch to completion. I had a small team helping me paint which made it go by a lot smoother and I can’t thanks Miguel and Sabriel enough! I was in charge of sketching it out, I had help painting in the cups while I did the Yerman pieces and then I went in and finished filling in colors and adding details. It was a fun project to work on and I can’t wait to see it show up on MTV’s Real World next season!

Hope you enjoy and if you’re ever in the area, come say hi to Yerman and his friends!

 

NEW MURAL ALERT!

I will be painting a mural at Life is Beautiful Festival this year with art collective PRZSM. In preparation for it, we decided to do some murals on the Zappos campus and film it for an announcement video. This is my contribution, a FORTY FOOT YERMAN!

We started this on Friday at 9pm and painted throughout the night, finishing that first night at 5:30 am. Then on Saturday we reconvened and painted from 10pm to 3 am. It was a pretty busy weekend, but so much fun.

Here are some pictures from the night:

The cool dudes over at Arts Vegas were gracious enough to include my Yerman mural in their write up of the murals at Zappos headquarters! Along with my buddy, Juan Muniz, only a few were selected to be highlighted so a big thank you to the fine folk over at AV. Also, been keeping it a secret but there’s a gallery show opening at the end of the month in the Zappos Lobby with works of art from all muralists so come down if you’re a Vegas local! Will post more deets once I get them. Party on, Wayne.
