Mark Dean Veca is most certainly a creative creature of his surroundings. It’s virtually impossible to reference Mark’s work without allusion to the Gen X cartoon character mainstays and other animated icons of that era, but this show has a taste of something more brand-y. Opening this weekend, EVERLAST, incorporates what we’ve come to know and love from Mark in the trippy, organic, psychedelia-laden characters but also an ode to signage. Signs, symbols and brands from Mark’s world have been given his artistic treatment and the results are, well, just plain fantastic. Here’s a sneak peek at some of his work opening tomorrow night at Western Project in L.A.
