Car Tagging

Setting up at the french market has its perks for sure. One is I get my artwork out to great people all around the world. The other is that i meet great people. Sometimes it goes just beyond the exchange of money for art into a very unique conversation or experience with new people. In this case it took a very different direction with me tagging their car with oil paint.

This lovely couple was taking a road trip from Boston to Seattle, and along their route they planned on hitting numerous cities. One of them being New Orleans. Along the way they were having different artists in different cities tag up their car as a souvenir for their journey. When its complete I’ll update the the finished product but i wanted to at least share with you my contribution to their driver side passenger door.

The funny part about this story that we didn’t realize right away was that we already knew each other. We met in Boston when I was playing with the band Stereogrove, and it turns out that they work with my guitar player. It really is a small world.

    Tony,
    You make a great point about getting your art out all over the world. I’m one of the guys from Utah (the one who painted portraits of his five kids) who stopped by the French Market today. They guy I was with loves the piece he bought from you. This couple having their car tagged by artists all over on their trip is pretty fun! Thanks for sharing!
