Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, & Damon Soule Mural (Arizona)

Not new to mind-blowing collaborations (see 2010), three members of the Furtherrr Collective got together for another mural in Arizona. Painted at the Flagstaff Brewing Company, friends Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, and Damon Soule each added their ingredients to the organic brew resulting in a vibrant, kinetic, and large piece for the public to enjoy.  Here’s hoping they get together for more projects in the future.

Streets: Mars-1 (San Francisco)

For fans of the recent more monochromatic aspects of Mars-1′s (featured) oeuvre, this new mural he painted in San Francisco should get them going. The otherworldly and organic nature of his work has become recognizable as part of the local painter’s signature imagery with certain pieces executed in a more minimalistic fashion – like the one seen here but on a much larger scale. Painted over several days on the side of the Phoenix Hotel and arranged through Wallspace, Mr. Martinez has added another beautiful piece […]

Releases: Mars-1 “Ween” Posters

We recently got wind of a new print release from Mars-1 when we spied this photo of the process last week. The limited editions were created for the recent Ween New Year’s Eve concert in Denver and came in several variants and are based on an imagery of his more minimalistic work, most recently seen in his show in San Francisco (covered). Photos of the two variants still available after the jump…

Openings: Mars-1 – “Everything Under The Sun” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Mars-1 opened up his show, Everything Under The Sun (previewed) to a packed house at Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s temporary space in the inner Richmond area of San Francisco Saturday night (the gallery’s usual spot is under renovation due to a fire at a neighboring building). The show included a few large scale paintings, including a tondo continuing his eye boggling Infinite Tapestry series. The centerpiece of the show was a sculpture installation filled with extra extraterrestrial creatures and landscapes that would seem to dwell […]

Videos / Preview: Mars-1 – “Everything Under The Sun” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Tonight in San Francisco, Mars-1′s (featured) will be taking over the temporary Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s space (248 Clement St. @4th Ave) with a new collection of organic paintings as well as a installation of his intriguing sculptural work collectively entitled Everything Under The Sun. As you can see from the video above by Colin Day, some of the pieces are quite large and stepping into the gallery tonight will be like entering another dimension filled with alien worlds and life. Discuss this show here. Discuss Mars-1 here.

Teaser: Mars-1 @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

On 11/11/11, San Francisco will be the site of Mars-1’s (featured) latest solo show, his first in the area since 2005. The new body of work will be hosted at a temporary location (248 Clement St. @4th Ave) as the Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s main space was the victim of a fire recently. We hope to expect more otherworldly paintings, full or organic and perhaps alien lifeforms as well a continued exploration of some black and white imagery. Showcard after the jump…

Openings: MS Fundraiser for Tim Strazza @ Joshua Liner Gallery

We all hit bumps in the road, but with a little help we can all overcome any obstacles. As mentioned previously, a good friend of AM and assistant director of Joshua Liner Gallery, Tim Strazza, was unfortunately diagnosed with a Multiple Sclerosis. We helped sponsor a fundraiser created by the gallery to generate funds that went to support Tim and his medical bills. It seemed that almost everyone came out of the woodworks to donate artwork for the charity auction including a heavy rotation of […]
