Earlier this week, AM had the pleasure of visiting the San Francisco studio of artist Mars-1 as he was putting the finishing touches on his latest pieces, debuting this weekend (teased). The new body of work features a few of Mario’s newer (stylistically speaking) black and white pieces, as well as a massive canvas showcasing his signature transcendental style. While hanging out in his Lower Haight studio we also got the chance to check out his excellent collection of vintage and contemporary vinyl toys and also had the opportunity to hang out with Mars’ sculptor and former studio mate Brin Berliner, who created his StrangeCo “Observer” figure.
Entitled “Infinite Tapestry”, Mars’ latest showing is proof that on canvas there really is no limit to his style, skill, or vision; the show opens tomorrow, Friday, April 2nd at Meta Gallery in Toronto.
Full studio visit after the jump.
