Sept. 30, 2017 Part One: Painting with Niko/Limbo.

About a 10 minute walk from my apartment lives my two good friends Annika and Niko. Niko is an artist of many mediums, one of which being painting. Niko invited me over one day in late September to chill and photograph while he worked on a piece he'd had in progress for some time. As opposed to a conventional canvas, Niko had chosen a piece of very heavy wood conglomerate he'd found tossed on the side of the road. While he didn't finish the piece in the one afternoon I was over, seeing the progress was pretty rad. When Niko did eventually finish the piece, he very generously gifted it to me. The piece now lives on display in my apartment.

Finished for the day but not finished.


Here's the final product in my apartment. JMB = Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of my favourite artists and who's style Niko's sometimes reminds me of.
