A couple of weeks this spring, as the cool air became sticky with summer, I stood in a basket 35 feet in the air and painted the Quackenbush parking garage in downtown Albany. The idea started over a year ago when the Albany Center Gallery approached me. The concept comes from the language that the gallery and the Albany Parking Authority used. I heard what they were saying and translated their words into the piece. Things like, “We want people to flock to the area and to be excited when they land in Albany,” gave way to what is now 6 birds in flight.
During the year the project grew and once the concept was locked in we were able to paint. Overall the 6 story, 85ft project took two weeks to paint and complete. It was a great challenge and we capped it off with a party. Couldn't ask for more!
Though many people gave their time and support, I want to recognize the incredible team at Death Wish for providing me with some gear, amazing footage and of course, coffee. Watch the video collab below:
