ARTIST SPOTLIGHT // Will Eichelberger

Will Eichelberger is one of our in-house artists. An inspiration to many, friends and colleagues alike, his work has just begun and is growing quickly. He is available for murals, commissions, and anything else artistic you throw his way. Check out this video we created for him during his latest venture, creating live murals at festivals involving local artists, and festival-goers!


From Will’s artist page:

Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events and small minds talk other people. Who do you want to be?


My name is Will Eichelberger , 

Combing photography and paint, I cut , collage , and color my subject mater to create one of a kind pieces. Moments , symbols, and inspirations are rooted in my work . Inspired by the immortalizing  power of photography and the vigilante essence of street art . Ive found a creative process where I can combine all that I love in art, technique and application into one direction, with this direction I have found purpose and means of expression my true self .



I hope to someday be in a place or create a place were creative people can come to gather, share inspiration , learn and teach  each other about life, art, any thing really. A place where people are welcomed and encouraged to be them selves , to follow there dreams to have the chance to create there own lives , the way they see fit. I feel that many people have helped me get where I am today and with out a little help or encouragement I know I wouldn’t be where I am today. 



Survive and Grow.

4/20 A Holidaze for the People

Many people wonder where the term 420 came from and why it has turned into a counter culture holiday for many people around the world. Its origins begin in the cannabis state of the world, none other then California. When a young group of high schoolers named The Waldos would meet outside a San Rafael High School at 4:20 to search for the holy grail, a field of weed left behind by the Coast Guard. They never found the field of dreams but a legendary term was coined after their attempts, 420, began to be the term every time they would light up. The Waldos had connections with the Grateful Dead and soon they began using the term around the Dead and the rest is history!

4/20 is also the birthday of reggae legend Stephen “Ragga” Marley, in his honor we are going to share some chill music for you to smoke with on this global holiday.
