The 2018 AIA Conference & Exposition on Architecture kicks off at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York tomorrow (June 21-22) and one of the highlights will be a work of art in-progress at the Sto Corp booth — #1768.

Sto AIA Mural

Work In Progress: Andrew Spear fills in the details of his 2018 mural for Sto at the AIA Expo in NYC.

Andrew Spear, @spearlife, a NYC-based, “live mural artist”, will be creating a mural on the walls of the Sto Corp booth during the show. This socially provocative scene designer is back by popular demand after creating a comparable mural at the 2017 AIA show.

Using the versatile Sto Acryl coatings – and no other medium – he will be transforming the walls of the Sto booth into a work of art entitled “Funky 4 + 1”. Spear, who describes himself as a community activist, cultural instigator and music enthusiast, is consistently testing the boundaries of his artistic imagination. And the AIA project is yet another demonstration of how Sto’s state-of-the-art building materials can also test boundaries and enable creativity.

If you’re at the show, swing by. Don’t miss the master muralist at work, and register for a free print of Andrew’s work.

The Finished Piece: Spear’s hommage to fellow artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons and Jean-Michel Basquiat riding the NYC subway is called “Funky 4 +1. The mural “ingredient” is StoColor Acryl Plus.
