RJFC Hits Art Week Miami 2016

I took the opportunity to head down to Miami again for Art Week in December of 2016. I literally got blisters on my feet from walking so much. I managed to meet many great artists and see a lot of inspiring work. Only put up 3 pieces on this visit but I was pretty happy with them. rjfc sticker # 82

RJFC sticker # 82 was made on a CD label using trash from the street. It was completed on 5/12/16 while sitting at the Starbucks on Belcher at SR60 in Clearwater, FL.

This, my 121st “relationship” collage was completed on 12/4/16. I used a base of the album cover “Wunderlich Pops 2.”

Then I arranged only trash found on the streets of Miami. I started it while sitting at the Starbucks at 2937 Biscayne Blvd, at the intersection of NE 30th Street on the evening of 12/3/16, then finished it after midnight in my room at an Air BnB apartment in Little Haiti at 335 Northeast 53rd Street.

I left it the morning of 12/4/16 on a wall outside the Lulu Laboratorium on NE 23rd Street at the intersection of NW 1st Place, right beside a SacSix piece of Oprah Winfrey. This was about 2 blocks from Wynwood Walls, and just a block away from Panther Coffee, where I was meeting Colorado artist Frank Kwiatkowski an hour later.

RJFC sticker # 80


RJFC sticker # 80 “Looking For A Good Time” was made on 5/11/16 with trash from the streets on a CD label. I made it while sitting at Starbucks on SR 60 at Belcher in Clearwater, Florida.


On 12/12/16 I sent it as a submission for the 2nd edition of the zine Be A Pal (of Jude & Val Lobasso). I don’t think this zine was ever published, even though the first one was really great.

That time when RJFC hit Denver in 2016

Back in April of 2016 I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to Denver, Colorado for the first time. We stayed on East Colfax Ave, near N.Downing St.  I sat several times at (what was then) the Sanora Cafe to work on my collages with trash found on the streets of Denver.

I also began my first Urban Price Tags here. Made and left four of them in Denver. I need to revisit this fun project soon. These little red price tags are “numbered” in a random fashion depending on what numbers I discover in my found objects. They could be a dollar or euro amount, a percentage, or just any kind of number.

I made two stickers and one “relationship” piece while in Denver: stickers # 77 & #78, and Relationship CXIX. But I also left some stickers I’d previously made, and brought with me.

Sticker # 68 (above) was made back in Tampa Bay on a CD label on 12/14/15. I stuck it on a cool “Route 40” green bike rack in front of the Sanora Cafe on East Colfax at Marion St. on  4/11/16. (below)

RJFC sticker # 76 was made on a small rectangular sticker using trash from the streets. I made it while sitting at a Starbucks in Pinellas Park, Fl, in The Shoppes at Park Place on 1/23/16. It was left on a lightpost outside the old 14th St. staff entrance to the Denver Art Museum on Sunday, 4/10/16. (below)

RJFC sticker # 77 (above) was made with trash from the streets of Denver on a 2013 USPS Priority Mail Label 228, while sitting at the Sanora Cafe on East Colfax at Marion St. on 4/9/16.
I left it the same day in a Labeauratoire Sticker Bomb (below) on a trash dumpster in the graffiti alley between Larimer Street & Walnut Street, between 29th & 28th St. along with work by Mimi le Clown, dwkrsna, C0rpse, Neverfart, Sara Conti, GATS, Artissin, JPO, Obey, Kryptc, CistOnes, SoreInfest, Jacuzzi & more…

And finally, my larger collage, Relationship CXIX – (THE BLOODY BARBER HIT MY fantastic PONYTAIL COACH) was also made on 4/11/16 while sitting at the Sanora Cafe.

It was made on a vintage album cover using trash found on the streets of Denver (above).

Relationship CXIX was left on 4/11/16 on an electrical box at the corner of East Colfax Avenue and North Lafayette Street, near Ice Cream Riot.

So altogether I left nine collage street art pieces on this trip to Denver. I also discovered some fantastic artists while there. Hope to visit again sometime..
