Carlsbad artist Bryan Snyder announces Morley as the next artist to paint the Carlsbad Art Wall
Following street artist bumblebeelovesyou’s inaugural Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) mural, Los Angeles street artist Morley takes his turn and will be painting the CAW’s 2nd mural to be completed on Sunday May 3, 2015.
The east facing wall of Señor Grubby’s located at 377 Carlsbad Village Dr. has become an urban canvas for each visiting Los Angeles street artist rotating every 1-2 months curated by Carlsbad based artist Bryan Snyder. Snyder hand picks each artists and is very excited to introduce you to Morley.
Morley is an LA-based street artist. His work has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, LA Magazine, TheChive.com , LA Canvas and on the television series Workaholics and Betas. His work has been shown in galleries around the world and he has lectured at numerous universities, LACMA and The Artisphere in Washington DC. Recently, he toured the country with his book “If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time” (published by Cameron + Company in 2014) and was featured in the AOL original docu-series “Vicariously.”
Morley’s typography based posters, including his portrait, can be found pasted to the urban landscape all over Los Angeles. Morley will be bringing this aesthetic to the Carlsbad Village in a mural titled If I Knew Then What I Know Now beginning on Saturday May 2. On Sunday May 3 around 2pm, Morley will be introducing a community interactive element of his mural. He will invite the public to add their own messages within his mural.
“I’m inviting people to use the wall as a sort of artistic time machine to write messages that they wish their younger self could have heard,” Morley explains. “I will put a bunch in myself in the harder to reach parts of the wall and hopefully people will help fill in the other parts.”
Expanding on interactivity, Morley will introduce a unique scavenger hunt into the Carlsbad Village on Sunday.
The scavenger hunt will continue along the idea of messages and time,” Morley explains. Messages that are directed to your future instead of your past will be hidden near the wall.
