DESIGN & ADVERTISING
RVA Unity logo
Following the death of George Floyd, Richmond, Virginia became an uneasy location due to the confederate monuments in the center of the city.
To try and help unify, I redesigned the city's logo and placed it in front of the most prominent statue, Robert E. Lee.
After installing the sign, the reaction was extremely positive. Pictures of people with the sign began coming in and there were many calls for t-shirt and stickers.
After the success of the logo, the sign was unfortunately graffitied and broken. Instead of fixing it completely, I painted back the design over the graffiti and made the broken legs
take a knee.
Eventually, the local Richmond press wrote about the success of the logo. I uploaded the design to my online shop and promised to donate half of all the profit to Art 180 and the Richmond Public School art department.
Soon, local businesses, like the Richmond Kickers, asked me to create murals of the design. I painted one of them as an ode to Kehinde Wiley, for his statue Rumors of War only blocks away.
Through the sales of my online shop, I was able to donate two thousand dollars to both Art 180 and Richmond City Schools art department.
Champion Grill asked me to turn a blank wall in their new sports restaurant into a piece that would attract attention in Charlottesville. UVA had just won the NCAA Tournament, so I painted their Coach, Tony Bennett, dunking over Mike Krzyzewski.
