Jeremiah Kille – August 2018

Update: Aug 17, 2018

WOAH! Some established artists have taken over the UC tanks and the work has been breathtaking. The latest is by artist Jeremiah Kille, a mural artist specializing in geometric shapes. The art appeared on August 15 and riders have been compelled to stop their rad rides and take it in. Other works of Jeremiah can be seen here on his instagram.

A new trend now though is the short duration of the art and abrupt changeover. Some art lasts only a week and before the tanks are blanked out and changed forever. So one must get out there often to experience it first hand.

This one with birds and donut was a gem.


The donut became a transition point for this art by an artist known for this bird theme. It transitioned very well with the donut tank. Sadly this art was gone after a couple weeks and very few got to see it in person.

July 16 saw the appearance of the very popular donut

This was a popular one not only because of the vibrant colors but because of that donut. I mean how can you feel gloomy after seeing that art?

    One of my favorite places in the world to ride!

    One of my greatest wishes for the tanks is that they would fill one of them with potable water. How great would that be to be able to fill up right there?

    • Francis Cebedo says:

      potable water… no. How can we even trust that with those antique tanks. The vehicles are only a couple miles away and the dorms are actually really close.

    At first, I saw the photo of all the butt cheeks, and I was sure it was a portrait of the ASS. Alas, no. He was likely somewhere MUCH cooler, as always.

  • Cole Trickle says:

    What’s behind the tanks? The photos aren’t hi-res enough, but I see what looks like trails back there.
