Batch Brewing Co.

Corktown, Detroit, MI

July 2021

I created a massive mural for Batch Brewing Co. that transformed a former parking lot into an immersive experience for outdoor dining. This incredible video was shot and edited by [Peasant Life]

The project was the largest painting I had created to date, and I'm so grateful Stephen Roginson (owner of Batch) asked me to create this piece for him. Stephen and I go wayyyy back as he was a champion of my work from the early days. We worked together on several projects while he was with vitaminwater.

I think the project took 2 days? Maybe 3? Having a brain fart right now. I'm doing these write-ups all in one go (a whole year's worth of work right now) as I neglected this website during a massive year. I'm making a shift to document these projects as I go, and have my website be the center of my world, not instagram.

This is Demetrio, who shot the video above. He helps give the mural a sense of scale.

This photo from outer space also helps give a sense of scale.

Jk.

But for real, Award winning photographer Stephen McGee photographed this with a drone from way up because it's ginormous.

He so generously donated his talents to help the Horangis raise money for ArtLab J during our first event which was held at Batch Brewing Co.

Stephen and I had a fun with scale, and you can see me cliff hanging off the left side of the mural :)
