Last month (May 2013) Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill, two Bay Area based artists, drove across the United States on a spontaneous mural tour. Flanigan and Dill created a series of nine impromptu collaborative pieces.
Dill’s intricate black and white illustration styles contrasted beautifully with Flanigan’s bold non-contoured steams of color. The works were themed around nature (e.g. animals, trees) and at times grew into such abstraction that they could only be referred to as the Wild Style of Character Graffiti.
They painted murals in Denver, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Brooklyn, with a grand finale collaboration in New Orleans with MRSA (Nola local) and GATS.
Make sure to check out Brett Flanigan’s upcoming art show with Joshua Mays at Old Crow Tattoo and Gallery in Oakland. Opening reception June 7th, 2013 (First Friday).
