He has focused primarily on community based public mural projects but also works in printmaking, apparel design, and other creative outlets. His graphic style is influenced by his experiences growing up in SF, as well as living and traveling in Latin America.
The Excelsior Portal was designed to reflect the diversity of the local community. Artist Max Allbee led the community design process attended by approximately 100 community members. Max also provided oversite to more than 100 volunteers who contributed over 350 hours towards painting the mural. This was truly a community effort. Thanks to Max and to all the volunteers who contributed to make this mural a reality!
