GUN Short Scene

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011


Last winter a crew and I hit up a wall for the filming of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Val Kilmer’s new movie GUN. Its a short scene but it made the cut.
Props to CAIN and KUSH. I’m sure that royalty check is in the mail…

Artprize>The Games Begin…

Friday, August 14th, 2009


Well its official…I will be competing in the 1st Annual Artprize.

Erwin Erkfitz will be transforming the building facades of South Division Avenue from Cherry to Williams St.

The mural includes aerosol stencils, brush paint, screen prints, wheat pastes & sculptural elements.

This mixed-media installation will bridge a gap of street-art and the gallery. Look throughout downtown GR for the installations of We’re All Connected 2.0, with its epicenter at S. Division and Cherry.

Urban Art Workshop Summer 2009

Saturday, July 18th, 2009




I spent the last 8 days teaching the Urban Art Workshop for the Grand Rapids Public Library.

This was the first year for the program and I believe that it was well received.
Nearly 80 students went through the workshop ranging in age from 11-18.

Spray paint markers and concepts was the focus of the workshop and each

student was able to take home a 2x2fft creation on panel.
