Honored to have filmed South Florida artist Aholsniffsglue for my documentary MONDO MIAMI.
The shoot was like his mural: in a state of flow. Beautiful day, cinematic subjects, plenty of rare documentary moments... And the footage looks a million times ecstatic in motion.
Interviewed the amazing HANDELSMAN, as well.
Artist, mystic, friend.
By coincidence Handelsman was reciting passages from "The Science of Getting Rich." That's how I knew I was at the right place at the right time. There was knife throwing, drugs, and spray paint! A few sketchy Broward people dropped by to leech on the vibe; but David - the human being behind the Aholsniffsglue persona - is probably the humblest, coolest dude from Miami. He takes everything & does everything in stride.
The same stride punctuating his iconic eyeballs.
So even unexpected awkward moments of fandom turned into positive communal experiences for everybody. We wrapped the day talking about The Mimosa Theory of Content, Scottish Rite Temples, and the creative imagination. David & Handelsman are the real deal in every sense.
Much love to the art, the dudes, and our city.
Stay tuned for more #mondomiami
