Redmond & Mardiah Gleeson Mural Tribute-KGB
The idea to do a tribute piece for my father, Redmond Gleeson sprang up organically. I have been a graffiti artist my entire adult life and doing something publicly in that medium for my him was a natural reflex, not just for me but for all of us in the crew and beyond that knew him. Our crew, KGB – Kids Gone Bad, are on a text thread and share stories and ideas all the time in our day to day life. Almost immediately the chatter started there with David Arquette initially volleying the concept of a tribute piece. It caught like wild fire with all of us immediately agreeing to the mission. Balthasar Adell took on the very important job of organizing the logistics behind the scenes. He secured the wall, assigned the design team of Gajin Fujita and David Arquette and made sure that no momentum was lost. And we all faithfully saw it thru to its completion.
