The idea of 2square has been an evolution. We, as 2square, have not only evolved in our crafts, but some of our greatest accomplishments have come from fighting thru all of the challenges of maintaining the vision of our dream. A lot of life has happened from our traveling, friendships, haters, and girlfriends. It’s molded us as men and we appreciate your support, as well as your nonsupport. Both fuel us in reaching our highest points; so, thank you, lovers and haters. We love you both.
We are not just artists; our lives are now an art, and there is certainly an art to living it. You now find us a little over 3 years into our journey as 2square. Four years into traveling and 2 1/2 years into 2square full time. I hope you follow. Our path has brought us back and forth between continents, homes, and loves. We chase our dreams, hopes, and life's mysteries in-between the rainbows and the rainfall. It’s a life of sacrifice. We both led very different lives just a short time ago. Flashy lights, flashy cars, and flashy clothes. Maybe we are followed by some of these things today, but we are not disillusioned by the long shadows they cast.
After our street art tour in Europe, we found a home in Detroit for a couple of months. The love that Detroit showed for us was immeasurable and it gave us walls as well as a building. After we found our way to Wynwood for Art Basel, we've been here painting for a solid year and a half now, leaving only to paint in Canada, and Venezuela. During our time here, we have painted a very respectable and possibly record setting amount of murals. We've painted buildings over 4 stories tall, and 2 different buildings with 18 murals each. We've explored our respective styles in an effort to become both better and more diverse. Justin has begun painting and sketching with his left hand, as well, and adopted a 2nd alias known as “Lefty” or “Lefty2.”
Our work is beginning to be respected and recognized worldwide. We have seen murals released in books, calendars, commercials, TV shows, music videos, online magazines, as well as in print.
Over the time our site has been online, we've written continuously. Over 400 poems now sit on the site, along with our videos that have followed our travels around the globe. Four different directors have given us their view of 2square. We've been photographed by world renowned photographers and our modeling portfolios have expanded. Our shoots have been featured in magazines, fashion blogs, campaigns, and catalogues on and off line.
Most days we paint, but when we work other jobs it is generally in the entertainment industry. You can find us on both sides of the camera shooting, modeling, acting, running props, doing set design, or working in the art department.
We feel honored and humbled by the City of Miami. They have taken us in and have shown us tons of support and love. Miami has given great opportunities to us, in our career.
No matter the places we go in our lives, we can both agree that some of the best people we know and some of the best moments we’ve had have come from being in this special place. Tears fill our eyes when we talk about leaving, but every gypsy has the day he must kiss what he loves goodbye. Not because he wants to leave, but because he knows he must leave. He must leave to fulfill the purpose set in his heart that drives his spirit to its destination. That day of departure is coming soon. Like a beautiful woman that I have fallen in love with, I will think of you often until we meet again. It’s not goodbye, yet, but it feels very close.
