In the heart of La Jolla, one of San Diego Counties wealthiest communities, sits the University of California at San Diego, recognized as one of the top 15 research universities worldwide. On this sprawling campus in the Sixth College area is Wolftown, one of the newest eateries featuring an authentic taqueria with tacos and burritos.
Enter Maxx Moses. The Art of Maxx Moses is a journey that began with the name Pose 2, painted on the sides of New York City Subway trains. During College days at SUNY Brockport, he merged WildStyle lettering techniques with Surrealism and formed a creative process called Concrete Alchemy, the transformation of blank walls into massive monuments of abstract symbolism. Through large-scale mural making, my work is always communicating with the public. As an Art Educator, I facilitate workshops and lectures that illustrate the importance of art and self-expression as a necessity for being in sync with the rhythm of life, says Moses.
So, with a non-traditional approach Wolftown and UCSD commissioned Maxx to create a centerpiece for the restaurant that would be his vision entirely without any restraints. With an urban feel the mural serves as a statement to Maxx’s artistic brilliance and Wolftown’s willingness to embrace diverse artistic expression.
