Heineken | Restoring Miami Marine Stadium

I had the pleasure of spending two weeks in Miami’s historic Marine Stadium, painting and producing this spot for Heineken to draw attention to the national landmark. Thanks to Monorex for the opportunity to design, consult, and ultimately execute this bad boy. I was joined by Baghead, Jose Mertz, Nicole Salagar, Abstrkt, Frankzilla, Lorena, Andy, Terry, and some additional Miami powerhouses in the painting process. Take a tour of what it looked like before we painted the ad, here.

I went to Puerto Rico with my good bud Baghead to battle in a Miami vs Puerto Rico Secret Walls drawing expo. We were hosted by the wonderful people of La Gallera Drawing Club, and Mondo Bizarro, and MTN Colors Caribbean hooked it up with the paint. Every single person we met was awesome, and frankly I need to return to PR pronto. Shout out to Elwood Cruz for making me count to 5 in Spanish on Puerto Rican television, to Club 77 for letting us paint your building, to the cops that didn’t care that me, Bags, Fisu, Ricardo and Jonathan rolled up to jam on a big random wall, to the late night people of El Local and that delicious ice cream spot i forget the name of, and to the early morning mofongo rain forest crew.

Pearl Jam gigposter mural

I was fortunate to be commissioned by BBT Center and Schrift and the Farbe Group to design and paint a giant gigposter-themed mural to kickoff of Pearl Jam’s 2016 North American tour. The goal was to tie-in South Florida, so I opted to illustrate a surfing South Florida Skunk Ape and lady friend. Thanks to Fiorella for the backbreaking help :)

16 thousand approving eyeballs was a neat bonus! Thanks @pearljam!

Shoe Palace HQ mural- San Jose

brianbutler_shoepalaceHQ_mural

I was invited to paint a monster mural in the lobby of the Shoe Palace headquarters in San Jose, CA. The doodles around the logo reference the company’s rich history and locations throughout the country. Las Vegas and Hawaii locations are particularly easy to notice. I really like the little top hat dude at the top, the logo for the San Jose Flea Market, the first place the family behind Shoe Palace sold shoes. Thanks to The Stndrd for the connection.

I painted this mural at Carol City Middle School as part of the Art In The Gardens Campus Beautification Project, curated by HecOne. Very happy to have take part. I know the “Lil Chiefs” are going to be stoked on all the new artwork on their school.

I painted this on behalf of High Rise Murals in the historic neighborhood of Harvard Heights. Down the street from Ray Charles’ studio, and Marvin Gaye’s former home. There are some Korean and Mexican inspired tiger masks, chilling hard in the desert, eating delicious chocolate covered Los Angeles donuts.

Strangeways at KYI



Baghead, Marlon Pruess and I were invited by Strange Ways to rock a quick black and white mural inside Miami Beach’s famous Kill Your Idol. We knocked it out in an afternoon, and stuck around for Luis’ Strange Ways zine party that night. Homeboy even had shirts with Gucci Mane on em. Additionally
Chachichinikki, Yenta and John Vale were onsite to paint as well :)
