AM stopped by Mark Dean Veca’s (interviewed) studio last week to take a look at the new body of work for his show at Western Project, opening September 18.

Keep it locked here as we’ll […]

AM attended the opening of James “Dalek” Marshall’s (interviewed) latest show, “Chaos On The Edge Of Reason”, at the Hurley Space. The unique twist to this show was the interactive opportunity for fans to “compose” their own piece of Dalek art. Sold at $200 dollars a square feet, fans selected from either a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 feet section from the massive 37 foot canvas mural (previewed). The fun part was watching people slave over their decision on what area to cut and what colors to […]
