Splattered Skies is Cody's newest creation. The intent: to combine the tranquility captured in his pastel work with the electric energy of his abstracts. The result: exploration of self and nature through representational and abstract art.
“Love is the Key,” is a project Cody started in which he painted blank keys red, and wrote the word “Love” on them. He then went around New York City handing them out to strangers, asking them to share something on the topic of love. He filmed the experience, and cut a five minute piece out of it. The initial video is viewable on the LoveKey Movement page of his website. Cody has since taken his LoveKeys to around the US, Puerto Rico, and Kenya in the form of installations, vendor displays, and interviews on the street! LoveKey now has multiple partners and clients around the world and plans to establish itself as a globally recognized doer of good by engaging communities in interactive installations, murals, and more. 2017 – present
