LA///SNEEK PEEK: MARK DEAN VECA’S “PHANTASMAGORIA” PAYS HOMAGE TO KAWS, HIRST, KOONS, AND MORE
Working tirelessly in the gallery at SoCal's BEN MALTZ GALLERY at OTIS COLLEGE for the better part of a month now is painter MARK DEAN VECA, whose epic "Phantasmagoria" installation opens this Saturday, October 11th. Armed with an arsenal of paintbrushes and indentured servants, Mr. Veca's been coating the interior with an ocean of day-glo orange paint and his trademark hyper-detailed paintings that fit into the elaborate filigree of the wall treatments. Focusing on subjects like Damien Hirst's notorious Diamond Skull, KAWS' indelible XX-eyed Companions, Buddha, David, Abe Lincoln, and even Jeff Koons' chrome bunny rabbit, the artist has created a deeply psychedelic view of Postmodern Pop Culture as viewed through his unique graphic kaleidoscope.
