new wall painted with my friend Xuan Alyfe for Living Walls
Atlanta, GA, USA
We love to experience the conference through the eyes of volunteers, artists, and the city as a whole. Did you have an experience at a wall? A chance encounter with a paint sprayer? Did you learn how to build scaffolding, have an impromptu dance party at a wall, meet your very own water goddess? Tell us whatever moved you this year! Use the hashtag #LW2014 and tell us your story, and we might feature it!

Johnny & Zelda Bling Necklace
Sometime in March 2013 I photographed all of my NES games for an art show about nostalgia. At the opening I talked to my friend Brooke Hatfield about creating a bling necklace out of the gold Zelda cartridge and staging a photo shoot. After a year’s time we finally arranged to make the necklace. For the shoot I called up my friend Johnny Apollo and he was game. Literally. Johnny also brought his girl Shareese with him.
It was blazing hot that day but we had a lot of fun. We didn’t even bother to look up any references and it seems as though Zelda Bling has already existed for awhile. C’est la vie.
Atlantan Jason Travis took some awesome photos with LW as the backdrops. Awesome shots!
Our fabulous Production team - Emily, Ed, and Adesuwa - are busy putting together piles of Montana Cans and paintbrushes together for our LW2014 artists! HENSE has got a great pile going.
Great photo in front of Sam Parker’s #lw2013 wall!
