“My subject matter focuses on animals. In my series, Last of My Kind, I document critically endangered birds with references to extinct musicians. The idea for this series of work was to question why humans often fail to recognize a disappearing species yet mourn the death of a celebrity.

My recent documentation of endangered creatures is raising awareness of statistics and on occasions brought the notion of activism to light. The visual language of a mural can reach such a wide audience because people, moved by the amazing art, share images of my work with their social networks via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. "

Last year, when the school was still under construction, Louis Masai painted three Edward’s pheasants (only 50 left) on one of the walls. "Look at how he creates the texture of feathers by repeatedly overlapping his Masai tag," said Pippa Seichrist, Co-Founder/Co-Director and Head of Development and Innovation at Miami Ad School.miami-ad-school-street-art-1.jpeg
