We combined our art expertise and worked with The Tubes choreographer Kenny Ortega (Dirty Dancing, High School Musical) to collaborate as the artistic team responsible for devising the production design and theatrical staging for The Tubes live shows and videos. We also designed the album covers and graphic design for the band. We came up with a style and air-brush technique which allowed us to design and paint some of the world’s largest murals. One of our most famous murals was the “Flying Records” on the exterior of the A&M Records building in Hollywood, CA. The mural’s demise was mourned by many in the music community, in particular Jerry Moss, founder of A&M Records. The destruction of the mural was documented in a 2012 NPR interview. Other iconic murals include “Crashing Waves” on San Francisco’s Cliff House and the interior of The Chemical Bank of New York at Rockefeller Center in New York City." – Prairie Prince
