So the mural is all done and I have only a couple of days left before I head back home. It's been such an amazing experience...to be here, to be with friends and to meet new people. And the weather has been warmer, compared to the last few weeks.

So far, I think it's going pretty okay. The mural will extend right to the top with the help of a cherry picker. I'm looking forward to getting onto the machine. It's quite taxing on the body. The arm gets heavy and the shoulder starts to ache after an hour and I have to take regular breaks in between. But I love it.
It's the beginning of my second week of my residency in Paris. I'm settling in pretty okay. Work on the mural at Palais de Tokyo will start tomorrow and I hope to be able to share some pictures of the process when I can. Currently listening to the Best of the Smiths in the studio. The weather has been pretty kind.
Am currently in Paris to prep and eventually start work on a mural for the Secret Archipelago show. Have already been here for 72 hours and will continue to be here till the end of March.
