Known also as Gamma Gallery, he is a talented and lively mural maker who captures the eye with skillful public art not paid for by any commision I can think of.
He just does it.

This is another angle of his work combined with other uncredited artists at the Williams Street demo site.

This is talent let loose for all to see. Without a Scientific and Cultural Facilities taxpayer handout.
How cool is that?
This is why I love Denver.
It’s just a leftover building, scheduled for destruction.
A witty public space for art.
Bloody brilliant.
