American street, graffiti and fine-artist Greg “Craola” Simkins, recently linked up with Branded Arts and Graphaids store in Los Angeles, California to create an impressive mural in Culver City.
Facebook recently reached out to Greg Mike to commission him for a large mural for their ATLANTA office. After a initial meeting with their team and a studio brainstorm session the artist worked up a sketch which incorporated a number of my characters and the 8 letters that comprise their name.
Colossal Media and Sky High Murals have teamed up with fine/graffiti artist Greg Lamarche for their first installment of The Big Brush Project. The mural features falling letters in Lamarche’s signature collage aesthetic and was painted in a way that matches his process. The video depicts how Lamarche paints his murals letter by letter, instead of by section.
After creating art work for 20 years under the moniker, CRAOLA, Greg Simkins prepares his latest exhibition at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery entitled “Stop Haunting Me.” Recently, LRG caught up with CRAOLA as part of their ongoing Artist Driven series to explore what brought him to the art world in the first place and the various experiences that have helped him during his diverse career.
