Series of interventions in Atlanta, GA where after discovering a loophole in the State's policy on road conditions, I painted the potholes to reflect the colours of the sky and bring awareness to neglected concerns within the community.
 Series of interventions where I painted the debris and bits of discarded gum on the pavements (sidewalks) of London, England. Another loophole in Governmental policy where it is illegal to paint on the pavement, but not the rubbish on top of it. I used acrylic paint to recreate my ethnographic studies of humans from above.

 I was approached by security and applauded for bring awareness to causes often neglected, however his line manager asked him to encourage me to "carry on elsewhere".
 Continued the series in Picadilly Circus, London. Spent two days (5am-7pm) covering the entire area surrounding the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain with yellow and orange figures form my paintings to comment on human connectiveness and to raise awareness of neglected rubbish from human consumption.

 Approached by security and was questioned. The guard told to come to his district sometime because he thought the colours on the street were rather beautiful. Was not asked to leave, but encouraged to continue.
 In Covent Garden, London.

 Again questioned by the authorities. My French is okay, but it was a funny situation explaining why I was painting discarded gum on the streets of Paris. We enjoyed a good laugh together and the police dismissed me and wished me a good day.
 Earlier work from 2012 which began the series of interventions where I matched paint colours exactly around London using acrylic paint and reassembled the colour squares in my studio to reflect a colour map of the city.
