State Fair Graffiti Demo!

Dusty GilpinComment

I was recently invited by Jenny Grigsby at the Great State Fair of Oklahoma to do a graffiti demonstration. I was extremely honored by the invitation, but wanted to include a wide variety of graffiti style within the single demonstration. Jenny told me to draw up some drafts for the wooden structure that I would paint, and I decided to draw plans big in expectations that they would downsize the demo. Here is the draft image of the structure I sent Jenny.

To my surprise she sent a follow up email with this image:

I am very excited and extremely grateful to the people behind the scenes at the State Fair that put together this massive structure without complaint of complexity or budget. This will by far be the best demonstration I've done.

Since the structure is 72 feet around and eight feet high, I've invited 5 other artists from across the state to join me in painting. We would love for you to come out and watch us paint on the first Saturday of the State Fair, Sept. 18th. We are scheduled to paint from 10am until 5pm. Hope to see you there!
