BBoy Monster: El Nino

BBoy Monster: El Nino, Vitruvian BBoy Happy new year everyone! Trying set this year off right, today I unveil my latest creation. Behold! The BBoy Monster: El Nino!!! If you’re a bboy, this guy needs no introduction. If you’re a bboy and you’ve never heard of him, then you’re doin’ it wrong! El Nino has been a dominating figure in the bboy scene for over a decade…which is ridiculous when you consider the fact that he’s barely old enough to drink! It’s pretty difficult to overstate his bboy credentials. At age 11 he teamed up with Kmel of the legendary …

Waacking Monster

Julia is also a dancer who is proficient in many different styles. As we were shooting this “Waacking Monster” she kept reminding me “I can do a bboy monster too!!!” When I first started developing this project, Julia was one of the first people I asked to pose for me. Now almost a full year later, we finally got together over the weekend for a shoot. This month I will be showing at Hallway Gallery on Center st. in Jamaica Plain in their holiday salon show. Also the bboy monsters will be invading Aurora gallery in New York this weekend …

BBoy Monster: Gyrotronic2039

Apologies for the lack of updates in the past few weeks, things were a bit crazy preparing for shows/finding new ones. Luckily I have some good friends who keep me in check and twist my arm to keep making new work. Gyro is a close friend and fellow crewmate. We are both founding members of Florox crew, although he’s been rocking a couple of years longer than I have. In addition to being one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, he is also fluent in many dance styles including breaking, locking, and house. Sign up for my Secret Society …

BBoy Monster: Kim Minsung

BBoy Monster: Minsung, Radio City BBoy Monsters have invaded New York!! I was in the big apple last week for our annual crew reunion, and met up with the legendary BBoy Kim Minsung for a shoot in time square. This guy is a former world record holder for 1990’s and all around ridiculous powermover. Our crew has affectionately nicknamed him “God Moves,” here are a few reasons why. BBoy Monster: Korean Devil Sign up for my Secret Society and never miss a post! Just hit SUBSCRIBE over in the top right for details!!! Please support this work by liking/sharing but …

BBoy Monsters: The Brothers Lim

BBoy Monster: T-Bag, Table Diptych Now that I think about it, I’ve known these two guys for a loooong time. When I started dancing in 2001, one of the first crews I met back then was a crew called “Baicha.” There were these two younger brothers in Baicha (who I think they were in middle school or something at the time), who grew up to become the BBoy Monsters I present to you today. Although this shoot was postponed a number of times due to conflicting schedules, in the end it was totally worth the wait. Good art takes after …

BGirl Monster: A+

BGirl Monster: A+, Buddha Hands I said I was going to get a bgirl for my next bboy monster shoot and I did just that. Not only did I get a bgirl, but I was able to get one of the illest bgirls in town!! I give you, the beautiful and amazingly talented BGirl A+!!! These shoots are always a collaborative process, although I do make suggestions for what kind of poses will work better for this concept, each dancer will approach these parameters differently. A+ was a real pleasure to work with, she understood the concept behind the shoot …

BBoy Monster: Float

Classic After more than a month since the unveiling of my last bboy monster. Today I’d like to introduce to you, my loyal readers…the legendary, world renowned, highly influential – BBoy Float!!! Float is the embodiment of a living legend, an O.G. who has been slaying beats, and roasting guys on the dance floor longer than most bboys have been walking. It was a true honor and absolute pleasure having the chance to collaborate with him on a shoot. This time I made extra effort to simplify my composition further, trying to achieve that proper balance of control and chaos. …

BBoy Style: Ninja Monster Technique

Thinking Man Happy Valentines Day folks! Today, your post will come in RED. I apologize to my loyal friends and readers, it’s been a while since I last updated. While it’s been a real struggle for me to find time to make new work in the last two months, I did manage to link up with a very sexy, and explosively talented BBoy – Straw Hat Aaron Shinobi!! We met up for a short photo session yesterday, and tossed around a few ideas. Below are some highlights from the shoot. No Shadow Kick Leap Baby   Thank you guys for all …

Extra Heads and Extra Limbs

When I asked for volunteers to become bboy monsters in my last post, I got exactly one reply. Luckily that reply was the infamous, unnaturally talented – BBoy Baldi. Today was the day we finally got together to try out some ideas. This is what we came up with. Happy Holidays folks! More coming soon!!!
