Good times traveling along the “Right Coast” and creating in the Virginia studio.

Posted on January 8, 2018

It’s been an awesome four months of creating along the East Coast while being based here at the Virginia studio, going to miss this place. Here’s a few views of the studio. Thanks to everyone who has supported and been a part of this adventure. Time to hit the road back across the Country for sunny San Diego, California!

Can’t wait to throw up that garage door in the North Park, San Diego studio and get to work on various KREASHUN & @kaleidoskullart Projects. Wishing all of you a Happy, Healthy, Creative 2018! #virginia #sandiego #studio #artist #montyart #montymontgomery #wip #imgoingbacktocali

Hanging at the “Juxtapoz Clubhouse” during Art Basel in Miami, FL.

Posted on December 7, 2017

Good times catching up with Woeski Martin at the Juxtapoz Magazine Clubhouse get down! Awesome moments shared bumping into friends from all over the map and meeting so many new ones. Can’t wait to return to Miami for Art Basel in 2018! — at The Juxtapoz Clubhouse.

 As a child growing up in Kalihi Oahu, his friend stole a book from his older brother the book was called Spray Can Art by Henry Chalfant & James Prigoff it was the first time Aaron experienced NYC graffiti. Characters and Styles by Mode 2, Seen and Dondi White also influenced by popping, breaking and the early hip hop movement Aaron was all about it, it wasn’t later until his early teens he got the true taste of graffiti, while growing up in southern california which was neighborhood driven and about tagging and getting your name up.

It was in vegas where Aaron was introduced to true graffiti, whole productions, heavens, pieces and the re-introduction of the Golden age of hip hop music. It was then Aaron got the itch to design Characters, letters and the early influence of design.

Aaron Martin was born on the island Oahu 1977, Hawaii. Most of his childhood was spent growing up and moving from Southern California to Nevada before finally landing back into Hawaii during his Junior year in high school.

In 1999 a car accident changed everything; this life-threatening experience inspired him to leave the island once again, this time to Seattle, Washington. Inspired by the rain and being indoors, he started playing around with different art mediums again. He then left back to Hawaii with a new perspective,

” Being close to death trapped in metal changed everything. Almost 18 years later but its just like it happened yesterday life’s been crazy and unbelievable I been blessed with the best Family and Homies ever, on top of that I been rocking out full time doing what I love just painting and meeting the coolest people.”

Aaron had his first show in 2002 and has not stopped. Showing in galleries up and down California the east coast, have even showed in shows that have traveled from the U.S. to South East Asia, Germany & South Pacific New Zealand and Australia.

His focal medium is acrylic paintings on wood and canvas. Using minimal colors and detailed character design, these paintings are usually comprised of stressed out emotional pandas. The pandas tend to represent the story of struggle.

“Everyone uses the panda of an icon of something cute and harmless, but I love painting them disgruntled and angry; it takes people by surprise.”

Aaron has painted well over a thousand of them. His characters tend to be somewhat repetitive, even anonymous in some instances, but always full of personality and emotion. Being known to rock the Panda from East to West, it’s just a small piece of what Aarons capable of doing. Besides working with acrylics, he also sews costumes, plush figures, sculpts, and dabbles in graphic design and illustration.

“Angry Woebots was never a name it was a concept of what I created, concept of my art, from the car accident until now, from being in a dark place and coming out of the situation fresh and ready to build, getting slammed into metal actually woke me up. Rocking art was the doorway it’s been nonstop ever since.”

The “Fractal #60” solid birch commissioned door is now installed in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Posted on May 7, 2017

The new “Fractal Series” door is now installed in the home of Pete and Beth Akey in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Fractal #60” is solid birch and was the first door that I have ever taken on. I wanted to allow the tones and patterns of the beautiful wood to come through while creating an interesting motion and energy that bounced around inside the shape. Specific color choices were dialed in with the client to insure a vibe to fit the interior of their abode. Here is a photo taken by Pete of “Fractal #60” installed with “Fractal #46” featured from their collection as well.

After completing the “Nature Series” benches in Rio Blanco, Matagalpa, Nicaragua with three amazing teams of individuals I have now continued on to Atenas, Alajuela, Costa Rica for the next Project. In the moments of travel coming here, I so strongly realized how very blessed I am to have been able to create in Nicaragua with my MOM!


She is one of the most inspiring, caring, giving, humans I have ever met and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that I LOVE YOU MOM, and that I am so very proud to be your son and your friend! Thank you for being the beautiful woman you are in so many ways to so many people. You inspire me to be the best I can be everyday, in every way! We were all so lucky to have you with us on the Mission Trip in Nicaragua. Thank you for all you bring to this world! “The quicker you are in attaching verbal or mental labels to things, people or situations, the more shallow and lifeless your reality becomes, and the more deadened you become to reality, the miracle of life that continuously unfolds within and around you. In this way, cleverness may be gained but wisdom is lost and so are joy, love, creativity and aliveness. They are concealed in the still gap between the perception and the interpretation.” -Eckhart Tolle

We are all working together in so many wonderful ways to bring all we can to the children and people of this beautiful community as they constantly give so much back to us.


This is going to be one amazing week with many moments to never be forgotten.


A JOURNEY that began so many years ago….

Posted on March 10, 2016

As I stand here on this beautiful Downtown Farmville morning I am overwhelmed by the thought that this artistic journey began over 20 years ago sitting in the library around the corner drawing my very first logo for Cilli Original Designs which I launched as a junior at Longwood University . As the sun reflects on the 90′ X 20′ “Warehouse Triptych Mural Project” which was completed in 2014, it’s truly hard to believe how quickly time passes. We must do the best we can to enjoy every moment and share them with all the amazing individuals along the way. Thanks to Randy Edmonson, my former painting instructor at Longwood University, Pam Butler of Mainly Clay , the entire Farmville Downtown Partnership, and the Town of Farmville, Virginia,! I am so honored to still be a part of this wonderful town. It will always be so important to me.

The last Saturday morning on the "Right Coast".

Posted on January 9, 2016

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 months since I was last at home in San Diego, Ca. I awoke this morning in a beautiful, hidden abode in the hills of Farmville, Virginia and realized this was my last Saturday here on the East Coast for a while. It’s chilly out, raining, and peacefully still. I will miss these moments and remember them fondly.

Thanks to Christy Maupin, the entire staff, and the talented students of New Summit Academy for so many memories while creating the “Nature Series” mural and spending time with you all on campus.

Arrived to New Summit Academy in Atenas, Alajuala, Costa Rica.

Posted on November 23, 2015

It’s been an awesome start to this adventure in Atenas, Alajuala, Costa Rica. I arrived to New Summit Academy yesterday and it has been super cool meeting the staff and all the students. I had a great morning speaking with many of the students about their artistic visions and really look forward to seeing their DREAMS come to life!  Made it to the hardware store this afternoon to grab supplies and caught this beautiful Hibiscus on the lunch break. The landscape is so beautiful and the people are so friendly, it really is wonderful here.


I am truly looking forward to the rest of my time here learning, creating, and continuing to work with the Students and Staff of New Summit Academy, I feel so lucky to be here and I am stoked for color to start hitting the wall on this new “Nature Series” mural. “Moment #16” will soon be coming to life here in Costa Rica!

Many new works flowing out of the San Diego, CA studio.

Posted on October 6, 2015

So refreshing to actually find minutes between projects to spend time in the studio bringing visions to life on various surfaces through multiple tools. I’ve been following up on written “Moments” in my journal which match with taken photographs on my phone. I constantly feel moments in Nature and within my CORE that I simply know will become works of ART… The “Nature Series” and “Core Series” have been developing for years and I am pumped to share the newest additions with you from both series of work. From so many moments felt in Nature to the vibes that rattle my CORE, they are all so very appreciated, they CREATE the PATH!  #alivethroughart #everymomentchangeseverymoment #thenatureseries #thecoreseries


Featured above are: “Moment #13” Montana Gold Spray Paint on Birch Panel 14″ x 14″ x 1.5″& “CORE #5″ Liquitex Acrylic and Montana Gold spray paint on Birch panel 16″ x 16″ x 1.5”.

"The Nature Series" is constantly flowing in many new directions.

Posted on August 25, 2015

It’s always a great feeling to capture moments in your mind and turn them into a visual experience on a surface. “The Nature Series” which kicked off in early 2014 with “Visuals in the Park” has truly become my newest way of taking in nature’s landscapes and relaying them through color, shape, and geometry. Over the last couple years “The Nature Series”  has been constantly evolving in it’s own way and there are many new visions in the works. Nature has always been such an important part of my life and this journey of taking images from nature and turning them into moments such as “Moment #11” and “Moment #12” below, truly allows me to be in that certain moment and relay it to others. Here’s to many many more, “Moments” in Nature.


*View various “Nature Series” works in  “Gallery 2014/2015” on the site.

The JOURNEY continues…

Years & Years & Years sitting in this chair at this same table. From town to town, studio to studio, coast to coast, you’ve traveled with me for twenty years. Pencil, brush, or spray paint to the canvas, panel, product, or wall, you’ve been there through so many creative times supporting me along the way. It’s crazy when you step back in a moment and recognize the objects that have been in your life and with you for the longest periods of time, through it all. Thank you table, I seriously don’t know where or what I would be without you. Here’s to the rest of this Artistic Journey together!

New works hitting walls!

Posted on July 16, 2015

There’s nothing quite like being HOME on the East Coast with family and creating at the studio nestled in nature. This past month in Virginia was filled with creative moments all over the state. It was awesome catching up with friends and completing various projects in Virginia Beach, Richmond, Charlottesville, Louisa, Fredericksburg, and Farmville while ending the visit with a birthday celebration on my folks property!  San Diego Studio 2015

Stoked to now be HOME in San Diego, and get back at it on the West Coast! Getting to the final touches on “Nature’s Rays” and “Visuals in the Park #2” which will soon be hitting walls in the area. Various projects in the works & ready to hang my newest piece for the collection from my good buddy Chris of “ROBOTS WILL KILL”. Get to creating peeps!

Nothing like cruising back through "FARM VEGAS"

Posted on July 1, 2015

I made a pit stop through Farmville, Virginia  on this past Sunday to visit with friends, meet with a few spots, and deliver “Reading Between the Lines” for the Virginia Children’s Book Festival. I revisited the “Warehouse Triptych Mural Project” which was done almost exactly a year ago. It’s just truly hard to believe sometimes how quickly time passes. We must do the best we can to enjoy every moment.  Go Get CREATIVE!

Getting a little frame work on with Dad at home in Virginia.

Posted on June 27, 2015

Nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning in VA to the sound of birds chirping and wind whistling through the trees as the sun peaks through to bring in a beautiful day in nature. Spent a little time on the front porch taking in this beautiful place and it’s surroundings while enjoying a little morning coffee with my folks.


Dad and I popped to it and started building a new floating frame for “WHY”, an original work of mine from Mr. Edmonson’s painting class at Longwood University in 1996. It’s hard to believe that almost twenty years have passed since creating this piece. I’ve decided to make it a permanent piece in one of the guest rooms at my parent’s home. It will be fun to re visit these memories every time I return home to VA!

HOLY COW! It’s hot here in Virginia.

Posted on June 22, 2015

Punching through this Virginia humidity and getting at new birch panels, wood blocks, and skate decks in the studio. Being surrounded by ~Nature’s Song~ and the palette of “green” is so powerful. It speaks, asking to be utilized through creating. It feels so nice to be nestled back in these woods of this state where I grew up. I once built forts and played in creeks here, I now use this land and Nature’s offerings to create from. Thank You Nature!

Visiting Ben and Jen in Las Vegas to see "Moment #5" in it’s new Home!

Posted on June 16, 2015

After completing the KREASHUN mural in Las Vegas at the International Licensing EXPO on June 9-11th I was able to roll over and catch up with Ben and Jen at their home outside of the city. “Moment #5” from “The Nature Series” is in their collection. Ben is the son of Randy Edmonson who was my painting instructor at Longwood University. I last saw Ben over 15 years ago when he was 10 years old running around in Bedford Hall at Longwood. Ben is now also in the ARTS as a  Graphic Designer and  I am honored for “Moment #5” to be in his personal collection. It’s so awesome how years pass and “The PATH” continues.

*Read a little about Randy Edmonson through the link below. Mr. Edmonson has retired from Longwood University now and is currently creating beautiful pottery, sculptures, and paintings in his mind blowing Farmville, Virginia based studio. After all these years, I continue to have an awesome friendship with Mr. E! I look forward to soon visiting his studio and creating together once again!

Awesome moments is San Francisco, California

Posted on May 10, 2015

After finishing the custom artwork for the Paddle Surfboard project in Placerville, Ca., I decided to cruise on over and visit San Francisco. It was an awesome few days in SF visiting friends, hitting galleries, and just popping around in the city. I made the  journey through “Muir Woods” to connect with that amazing place once again, and camped at “Kirby Cove” campground which has now become one of my favorite spots. The views looking back across the Golden Gate Bridge were so inspiring and I will never forget the moments…. I am so thankful to be on this artistic JOURNEY!

I have picked up the pen again…. "Neutral Rainbow"

Posted on July 31, 2014

“neutral rainbow”

small remembered moments between ears.
those voices and messages that are heard, yet never listened to.
reassuring smells of free confusion.
certain words and motionless action.
wrong turns instead of new ones.
it’s pulling me through, taking while giving, shared.
i’ve been here before, i’m coming down.
that soundless sound.
i am up and about often.
am I here or nowhere.
slightly crossed are my fingers.
how shadows not only speak, they guide, you and me.
i’m warmer now.
i’m warmer than warm, yet chilly inside.
random motions and mentions of belonging, the rain surely does.
please don’t wake me.
a neutral rainbow full of created paths.
a rushing river, low on fuel.
somehow, i recognize this place.
the breeze flows, the window, movement arrives through her hair.
delicate is this, fresh from the garden.
calm, and then we advance into the light of medium scent.
blinded by the visual.
held while only wanting to be let go.
let me out while I pull me in, again and again.
a refreshing morning sun.
i stand like a child.
i hum a specific melody.
i imagine.
i just stand there.

A little *SUNDAY FUNDAY* with the "Nature Series"

Posted on May 4, 2014

•SUNDAY FUNDAY• Popped up with the sun this morning to get rolling on new panels for “The Nature Series”. This entire series kicked off last week with “Moment #1”, which can be viewed in the “Gallery” – 2014. The series is based on patterns, elements, and colors in Nature. Could be a flower, could be moss, could be a butterfly, fluttering through the trees, maybe even something I thought I saw…

Sunday Funday at the Studio in SD,CA.

Combining these natural moments with my emotions, gives me an edge of creating on completely how I feel and what I saw at a certain moment in the lands where I was raised. I can’t really explain a more core feeling in creating. The series will continue until my last days…

Warming back up to the "Left Coast" studio in SD!

Posted on March 15, 2014

I’ve been in and out of Khaki’s life since the day he picked her up and she will be so missed by many many folks. RIP Khaki, you will always be with us and cherished. We miss you beautiful girl!
