David Flores, a street artist and close friend of the House of Marley, has been creating incredible artwork on the sides of buildings, shoes and skateboards for a long time. Getting his start at Shorty’s Skateboards, David has designed iconic skate imagery for companies like Flip, Vans, Real, Anti-Hero, Powell Peralta and so many more. Now with his sights sets on back the street, David has been comissioned for some killer work all over California.
His latest piece was a large scale project for the side of the revamped Viper Room. The infamous Sunset Strip bar is in the middle of a makeover and David’s brand new Johnny Cash piece on the building will remind of it’s rock ‘n’ roll past, present and future. Talk about #LiveMarley? Not only is the artwork phenomenal, but David goes to some pretty great heights to finish the piece via a cherry picker.
