A New Journey

A New Journey

In 2010 I went on a personal creative mission first by opening a gallery shop in Wynwood, Miami, the new urban art capital of the planet and in that shop setting out to paint 13 paintings a month for 13 months, 169 in all. In this blog I will post as many of those paintings as well as new works and try to describe something about each new piece. That adventure I called “An Unusual Journey” This new blogging experience I will call my “New Journey” (at least until I get a more clever name for it!)

I learned a lot from that painting journey, one thing, totally by accident was that each painting has a little story, or blurb that goes along with it, I will include my original blurbs and my thoughts that come about now too! The blurbs were a simple thought that people loved so much I couldn’t omit them so now they, as well as the paintings are a part of me! Oh, one more thing because I’ve been asked before, EVL stands for Erni Vales LTD.

He may be best known for his development of the 3D graffiti style that has influenced thousands worldwide to follow his technique; however, Vales, has a portfolio reaching far beyond what might be expected from a graffiti artist. Now a creative powerhouse, Vales has completed many successful projects ranging from large-scale murals, to art directing films and videos, fashion, photography to restaurant and nightclub interior design worldwide. His collaborations have placed him in the heart of Google’s NYC office and the surreal world of photographer David LaChapelle. He has also worked closely with video director Hype Williams, spanning his art across all mediums.
