#MYHOODISGOOD new piece in DTSA

MYHOODISGOOD art

DEC 2019- We come across many great artists, musicians and other creatives here at GCS. They’re all getting it done in their own right, making the world a better place with their efforts. We meet #MYHOODISGOOD team on a Tuesday and by Thursday night, they were leaving a mark on the downtown community. These guys were passing through Santa Ana on their trip from St. Petersburg and after talking with them, GCS helped them secure wall space so they can share their art with us. Located on the Bush St. side of 4th St. Market, their portrait of the native american chief Sitting Bull stands tall, almost taking up the entire side of the building. It was a treat to see them paint. With surgical precision, they got the job done in 2 days and less than 12 cans. I wish more local artists could have seen them at work, it never hurts to watch artists create. Here are a few photos we grabbed while @1m5orry was painting. Stop by and take a look for yourself.

First Art Walk of 2019 at GCS

DTSA art walk

Jan 5th, 2019- The first art walk of 2019 started off very well.. well, except for the water falling from the sky. But did that stop people from coming through.. no. Shout out to Ferin from BLACK OC for organizing the ‘block walk’ photographer/ videographer meet up here at GCS. They got Apollo Bebop and Allah’s Apprentice to come through and perform for the attendees. KENOS and BENG painted live during the event with good old MONATNA products … take a look.DTSA art walk
