“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”—The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 2008 Based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The very talented homie Dan Nguyen aka DEMON SLAYER was recently commissioned to contribute to one-fifth of a permanent mural on the sports field at Riverside Community College. The work is one of the first permanent graffiti-inspired art murals in the city and is pretty fantastic.
Nguyen’s abilities don’t stop there. In addition to working on installations featured everywhere from Coachella to the Riverside Art Museum, he’s a burgeoning DJ and producer performing alongside electronic heavyweights like Daedalus, Free The Robots, and The Gaslamp Killer.
“In Berlin, a “group of cyclists” dumped many gallons of paint into the middle of Rosenthalerplatz, letting pedestrians, cars, and bikes create a colorful collective work of art.” I think this is one of the most beautiful art projects I’ve seen in awhile. Wish we could have more art concepts like this. More photos and info here: GOOD
