The final wall for 2016 was in London town in December. Battling the rain was tough, but was finally completed! The Union Jack reference was used to influence my colour choice. it was an interesting time for me to be in London when the Brexit decision came through. My mural subtly touches on this issue.
Flora + Fauna – A Florida themed mural I was commissioned to paint, late last year in Jacksonville, USA. During my stay in Jacksonville I was surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean that helped inspired this piece.
I am very happy to have finished the largest wall I have ever painted! Big thanks to Art Republic for the support.
The mural, located in the city centre, took 3 weeks with an assistant to complete. 4 days to sketch up the design on a 9 storey wall x 100m (at least!) Here are some shots of the progression of the weeks.
What a Beast!
October 2016. I was invited back to Washington DC for a 2nd time!

“We were fortunate enough to work together with Reka in the short window he was back here in Australia to release this 7 colour screen print entitled ‘Eastern Dreams’. It is his first ever screen print release in Australia, and has been created from an original piece that was inspired by Reka’s recent time in eastern Europe. Painted specifically for this print release, forms of faces and architectural icons appear from the abstract. A puzzle of tessellating shapes and colour, Reka’s steady hand and attention to detail make this print shine.”

My two 9 storey walls I painted during my 2 week stay in Kiev were influenced by Kiev’s unique architecture and especially the Large monument “Mother of Motherland”(Батьківщина-Мати)
The 2 murals connect together as a diptych to depict A mother’s love for her Daughter. This theme has been explored through elements of female forms in motion, almost flowing like the river. The action of passing down knowledge to the next generation of Kiev…
Big thanks to the great team at Art United Us for the support and this amazing experience. Kiev is magical!
Currently in Kiev, Ukraine working on a project with ArtUnitedUs.
I get to play with 2 walls side by side! The plan is to join up the walls to make one larger design. Lets see how this one turns out! Love Kiev.
Some nice progress shots of the 1st wall in process.
Late last year, I was invited to paint a famous doorway of a famous Building located on the busy street of Lafayette, Manhattan NY.
October marked the occasion that New York was one of the only cities in USA, at that time, that was accepting Refugees. I decided to paint an Immigration themed wall that subtly touched on this issue that is still very current today. The mural is titled HOME. I hope since then USA has opened its doors up further. We shall see…
