AWR’s 2Tone directed this over the top video featuring Iggy Azalea. Never been into the sound of foreign rappers, but this shit is somewhat bearable…
Another video documenting our time in Detroit preparing for the Revok / Rime / Roids Perseverance art show. This video by Noah Banks focuses on Roids and I, painting abandoned walls and pulling all nighters in the studio.
At the end of this video is a clip of me on a mushroom trip in a vuala moment… “Everything goes with dungarees!” (jeans), aka everything goes with blue. With brush, hands, a broom and a drill bit, I spent that night painting with devilish enthusiasm…
I had the pleasure of Painting with Patrick Martinez during February’s Magic trade show in Las Vegas. Coming from slightly different ends of art making, I found it easy working with Pat and hope we can do more in the future…
Known Gallery presents “Divided Attention”
PUSH’s first landmark solo show opening October 23rd, 2010
On October 23, 2010, PUSH’s street-smart installations transform into gallery worthy paintings, celebrated by Known Gallery, Los Angeles until November 23, 2010. To mark the opening, PUSH will be painting larger than life feature installations both inside and outside on the façade of the gallery building.
A self-taught painter and sculptor, PUSH was inspired early on by skateboarding and the burgeoning west coast graffiti scene. He credits his friendship with fellow AWR/MSK crew member SABER as helping to define his path in life as well as shaping his art making work ethic.
In 2007, PUSH’s early work caught the eye of media sponsor, LA Weekly: “Trying to define Push’s work is unfair, and nearly impossible. It’s easier to say it’s like nothing else: informed by postmodern abstract splatter paintings, yet rigid, neon and precise. Introverted and quiet, he’s the thinking man’s graffiti artist.”
After his many years of global graffiti writing invitations and participation in numerous group exhibits, DividedAttention brings together PUSH’s latest paintings, debuting an evolved style and introducing a new, sophisticated color palette. When asked why it took so long for the Seventh Letter’s man of mystery to have his own show, he demurs. “I want to show something that is natural, balanced, and thought out. And timing is everything”

Here are some finished shots of a wall we attempted to do during the heatwave that went down here in LA. We tried showing up early enough to get shade and struggled through to finish with the sun beating down on us (it sucked). I brought a few sketches for this wall but ended up getting into a groove and freestyling. It’s good to see Witnes out doing his thing again!
