“Ride shotgunnin’, Bobby keep the love comin’. I’m sittin’ pretty and my love is digi” – RZA as Bobby Digital
Felipe Pantone painted the mural in our outside shots in Downtown Las Vegas for the Life Is Beautiful Festival in 2016. I had been a fan of his work since seeing it on social media and was excited to see one of his pieces in person. If you search Google Maps or Google Earth for the location of the mural (S 7th St, Las Vegas, NV 89101), you can find our crew - Malissa, Genix, Krystyl, Norman, and I, as we caught when the Google Maps Camera Car passed.
“Felipe Pantone’s work is at the cutting edge of street art. Straddling conventional graffiti, typography and abstraction, his work fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly evolved geometric shapes to create an ultra-modern aesthetic which complements and reacts with the stark modernity of our cityscapes.
Drawing on our concerns of the digital age and the speed at which technology is developing, Pantone’s art is like looking several light years ahead into the future and discovering a new language in which to communicate.” – James Buxton, Global Street-Art (www.felipepantone.com)
