My heaven: Wynwood Walls in Miami. 

I recently got to experience the magic that is Wynwood in Miami. It was brief and limited in area, but I’ll take that over missing it entirely. For this mural and street art lover, this is paradise. My favorite piece in Wynwood Walls is a mural by Maya Hayuk. So colorful and graphic, it screams my name. I could have spent so much more time wandering around the walls and the surrounding area. But I’ll have to return one day to do so.

10x10” acrylic on canvas

I have no idea where it comes from. The thing that I do know is that after a while, you begin to realize, A) how little you know about everything and, B) how vast the brain is and how it encompasses everything you can imagine — but, more than that, everything you can’t imagine. What is perhaps central to this is the impulse to make things, which seems to me to be a primary characteristic of human beings — the desire to make things, whatever they turn out to be. And then, supplementary to that, is the desire to create beauty — which is a different but analogous activity. So, the urge to make things is probably a survival device; the urge to create beauty is something else — but only apparently something else, because, as we know, there are no unrelated events in human experience.

Self-portraits from a photo shoot last month. Too excited to play with the new mural & my new shorts.
