The artist who goes by Gazoo To The Moon has spread his message everywhere he goes. Often carrying spray paint in his bag, even when he’s traveling, his work relays the idea that you should always be shooting for your dreams. So why not shoot for the moon?
He wasn’t really into graffiti at first, but friends encouraged him. He began with sharing his message on doors, and later, spread it to sidewalks. People immediately began asking him about it, and Terry Richardson even posted a photo of his Gazoo’s work on his blog.
People began to get his message, and really “connected with it so hard.” He was determined to spread his message as far as he could. Using only paint and tape, he created art wherever he could.
Lately, he’s been doing commissions for buildings, an installation for Splash That, some upcoming shows, and will even be doing some rooms for Refinery 29. He’s busy.
“I’m making a living from my art. My mom said I’m living the dream.”
Indeed he is.

His next show is called Boldly Refined, a group show featuring seven different emerging artists, who all use unique mediums to create their work—it opens Saturday, August 27, at The Hole Gallery.
You might think these messages are cool, but do you know that the property are responsible for the sidewalks ? The DOT can easily give the property owner a fine or make the property owner replace the sidewalk. NOT COOL !
Don’t live in New York then. You people hate the culture until you see it up on moma wall.
