The undisputed master of Sci-Fi abstract psychedelia, San Francisco-based painter MARS-1 (aka: Mario Martinez) continues to amaze with a new series of kaleidoscopic paintings and bronze sculptures in his new "Nuclear Mystic" show that just opened at Chelsea art hotspot JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY. Perhaps the most distinguishing aspect of Martinez' work is the painstaking detail that goes into each painting anchoring his seemingly abstract compositions with a seemingly incongruous dose of meticulous rendering. HAVE A LOOK:
