I began wheat pasting these Hearts on walls in Chicago and New York this quickly became a popular and vital part of my art practice expanding into clothing, tote bags, animations, murals, and various other commercial advertising campaigns. The Hearts have also been widely documented and included in various magazines, newspapers, websites, and Art books documenting Street Art worldwide. Through my work with Heart to Heart International, and their outreach programs with children the Hearts have been distributed on every continent.
I like to think of these as giant tin toys - I hear (from the farmer who owns the land) that the Robots have become a popular site for teenagers in the area to come and smoke pot, blare music out of their cars, and make out. I couldn’t be happier. These Robots live in Wolf Point Montana along route 2- they can be seen from the road.
