This painting is going to Berlin, Germany for “LAX/TXL” an exhibition hosted by Thinkspace Gallery. It’s part of the opening process of a brand new museum, “Urban Nation” featuring New Contemporary art. The museum will have window murals by Joao Ruas, Glenn Barr, Nosego and more, with the 5 story building facade painted by Dabs Myla.

"LAX/TXL" will be situated in a temporary exhibition space opposite this museum making it a killer double punch combo of artness opening May 17th and closing July.
