It all started with a stranger and a birthday wish…
When Hey Artist was a few days old, a stranger messaged me on Facebook, asking if I was an artist. After I gave a very profound reply about how I want to redefine what it means to be an artist, he said, “What I mean is, I am wondering if you could help me. I have a wish. I want to paint a wall on my birthday. But I don’t have paint, and I don’t have a wall…” After considering my neighbors’ walls, I offered my gate to Egon Layson. And the rest is history.
Street Art: Private or Public? It doesn’t matter.
Hey Artist is out to transform communities into a STREET GALLERY! Starting with one home, one street, one town, one city….. aaahhwoooo!!
Open up kids (and adults) to creativity. Let’s not be box and brown. Open up the private for the public. Blur the lines that separate us all.
Express home personality with the touch of art — this is a collaboration among skilled artists, and artists of all kinds :p
Art for the community, by the community. Call this project whatever you like.
And watch as art crawl into your homes
If you want to share your creativity and organize wall painting in your community (or at your own house!), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request for collaboration in Google Map.
