Forest for the Trees mural festival has come to a close. It was such a great week with an exceptional group of artists. Yoskay, Joe, Dave, Tyrone, Kamea, Mhak, Enrico, Blaine, Zach, Gage, Mark, Taka, Jun, Marcelo and Erik; You guys are incredible and it was truly amazing working with you. Thank you so much. The city of Portland rolled out the red carpet for these guys and I hope everyone enjoys the murals. I would like to acknowledge the ridiculously good job Gage Hamilton did in acquiring equipment, walls, supplies and sponsors for the event. This guy is exceptional and it was great working with him on this project.
Artists are getting on planes, some are lingering for a while, paint is dry, hangovers nursed, sunburns treated and now sleep is required.
Check out the weeks worth of photos.
