Last week I got to be apart of the creation of my first mural alongside Nessie Blaze and Le’Jon Devorier, two super dope artists I’ve been dying to work with. I was beyond excited to be asked to be part of this project painting two legends, Nipsey Hussle and Tupac Shakur.
I’m happy to contribute to memorializing Nipsey Hussle Tha Great! His passing shook me to the core and I’ve been painting him constantly since his passing. I’ve never been moved to paint a celebrity before. Anyone who follows my work knows it mostly consists of a sensual expression of womanhood. This is something much different that has been pouring out of me.
As honored as I was to be part of it, I had a very hard time feeling real joy in the process. That week I just felt weighed down by a very heavy energy, as did most of Los Angeles.
At the same time, I feel this surge of inspiration and motivation to go all in on my dreams. I feel like I can make things happen and I plan to. The marathon will continue…
You can see this mural at Para Financial Services in LA on Pico and Hauser. If you see it, please take a picture for me :) There is so much more to come, stay tuned!
