Mi Oración: work in progress

I've been collecting broken skate decks around the neighborhood for a while. So far my idea is to paint on them, but we'll see what else this might turn into. I like the idea of composing graffiti on various surfaces around the city. (not necessarily walls, and most definitely not illegal spots) City, or dwelling place, as canvas goes back to early man painting on cave walls; it's one of our oldest art-forms. What I like about skate decks is that they have been all over the city and grinded/board slid over many surfaces with their previous owner. This provides a unique artifact from the street level to tell stories on.

Lately I've been working on one piece called Mi Oración. My prayer for L.A. is that death, in all of it's forms, would lose it's sting in our city.
