Following up our previous coverage of the RAD Napa project (curated by Thinkspace and sponsored by The Napa Valley Wine Train), we now have photos from something Mars-1 (featured) painted recently. Creating a mural from his Infinite Tapestry series next to the railroad tracks, the Bay Area-based artist wove multiple globes of his bubbles together on the two part wall. The organic forms really pop against the stark black background, especially when viewed from the train. Photo & video credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Mars-1 here.

Last week in Tennessee, Mars-1 (featured) & Curiot decided to work on a mural together for the Nashville Walls Project. Located at the new Nashville Sounds Baseball Park and sponsored by Gibson Custom Division, the new piece sees Curiot adapt his style to mesh nicely with Martinez’s organic otherworldly imagery. They had met briefly before Nashville, but had never worked together but based on this result, they should definitely consider more collaborations in the future. The wall is near the “Right Field” entrance to First Tennessee Park […]

Last month, David Choe (featured) led a group of artists into the wilds of Morocco on another Igloo Hong funded project (also see Cambodia). Included on the trip to Marrakech were repeat attendees El Mac & Andrew Hem along with newcomers Mars-1, Aaron Horkey, and DVS-1. As usual, it sounded like it was an artistic as well as a spiritually-revealing journey – you can read more from straight from the horse’s mouth here. Discuss David Choe here.

Taking his bronze sculptures to the next level, Mars-1 (featured) has prepped three massive new pieces for this year’s Burning Man.
