You remember the MTV show Pimp my ride, well I really wanted to pimp my Macbook, so I visit with Eric Gonzalez of the Urbanists Collective, an alliance of independent street artists. Eric has been creating street art or graffiti for a couple decades now, and I love his work. He’s always down to do small projects and big ones too, like murals for city, and painting small pieces like my Macbook. He’s generous with his time and art and he’s one of the coolest people I know.
When I visited him at the Lumberyard he was setting up for this year’s Taste the Arts Visalia on October 17th from 12pm-6pm. Taste of the Arts is a festival that celebrates art in all forms from music, visual, and performance. It’s free to everyone and there are classes and clinics all day, so you too can learn to make art. So get out there and be inspired.
