This is me painting ADA music studios in Nairobi. Its located at this place called the Alchemist Bar. I met many talented people and some of them produce content for Whats Good Network. They featured my mural process on their site along with a conversation about their perspective on graffiti and street art in the city. Check it out here: link to article.
I bought another 1-way ticket and I'm headed back to Africa (for the first time). I'll be a featured muralist at the Chale Wote Street Art Festival in Accra, Ghana. I figured since this is my first time flying to The Continent, I might as well make it an adventure. My goal is to do exactly what I did in Europe only better- make art and build with the people. In addition to street art, I'll be engaging the local startup scenes to see what issues they are dealing with and how this current push for technology is empowering or hendering their communities.
People wonder how I do this whole "1-way traveling thing". To be honest its fairly simple. I focus on the journey, not the destination. Trust in God and rock out. I'll be fully documenting and sharing my experiences this time around. If you would like to collab or link just message me.
Tour Schedule (tentative)
Casablanca, Morocco. Aug 15 I dont know anyone in Morocco and I wont be there for very long. Only 23 hours to be exact. It's my layover before landing in Ghana for Chale Wote. Street art does exist there and I want the inside scoop. My goal is to meet a local artist(s) and experience how they get down.
Accra, Ghana. Aug 16 Ghana bout to be crackin. You can believe that. I'm landing two days after the festival officially kicks off. I have no idea what to expect. Just point me to the nearest wall. After the festival I'll be doing personal studies and developing an art series that I've been dealing with since 2012.
Nairobi, Kenya. Sept 15. I'll be in Kenya for 2-3 weeks. Dont have any concrete plans except to find artists.
Johannesburg, South Africa. Oct 1. I'm good when I make it to SA. Got relatives and friends.
