Relax in what the inside of MDV's head looks like...

Following up on our previous sneek peek at one of MARK DEAN VECA’s new wall paintings for his retrospective show opening this Thursday, January 29th at the UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY/UCSD, we've got a first look at the show's new interior "lounge" freshly painted by MDV himself. Providing a comprehensive overview of the Shreveport, Louisiana native & current Altadena resident’s creative oeuvre, “Mark Dean Veca: Painting, Wall Drawings and Collaborations” chronicles the diversity of the painter’s career from his early drawings and monochrome paintings to his creative collaborations with Nike, KAWS, Ford, and Burton Snowboards, before arriving at a selection of the artist’s stunning new work. The show will feature two intensely detailed wall paintings indoors & out exhibiting his signature style of graphic assault. In the words of curator Steve Mitchell, “Veca works in the meticulous tradition of the fresco painter to produce an image that paradoxically evokes the immediacy of the graffiti artist.” Keep an eye on ST for an MDV opening recap soon.
