Collaborative Project for Apple in Chongqing, China

I'm so insanely excited to finally be able to share with all of you why I went to Chongqing, China last month.

Apple invited me and the amazingly talented painter Yangyang Pan to China to create a collaborative artwork for the new Apple store in Chongqing, opening January 31. As you can see in the mini-documentary that Apple made of us and the project below, our painting/photo combination is now wrapped around the new store until it opens on Saturday.

After many nonstop days of shooting, editing, being interviewed, being filmed with drones, climbing on rooftops, etc, I'm really very thrilled with how everything came together. I’ve also included a few behind-the-scenes images from the project below. All in all, a great success!

Lightbox exhibition in the NYC Subway

I am so excited to announce that seven of my NYC Intersection images are now on display and will be through all of 2014 in Bowling Green subway station in Manhattan!

The installation is part of the MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design program. My images are displayed in 66"x45" (huge!) illuminated lightboxes, and I'm absolutely thrilled with how the exhibition looks. It’s the largest I’ve ever seen any of these images printed, and definitely the first time I’ve ever seen them illuminated.

If you're in NYC, be sure to stop by and check them out!
