Heavily inspired by skateboarding culture and the graffiti-laced aesthetic that comes with it, Mr Mars pushes the boundaries of street art’s place in the collectibles market.
His latest series Bombers delivers a colorful mashup of mediums, featuring distinct pop culture icons bursting out of exploding spray paint cans. What better way to kick off this series than the Kool-Aid Man…
My Bomber creations started when a collector reached out for me to create art out of his sons favorite Buzz Lightyear toy which had broken. I worked it into a can and voila.
I usually have Bob Ross on repeat in the studio, I always loved his positivity and calm way of teaching.
Each piece takes up to a week or two, including multiple drying times as I create my works out of a mixture of vinyl, plastic, and real up-cycled spray-paint cans
I always get the “sideways dog” face from peoples faces when they first see my work. Usually followed by “I’ve never seen this before,” which I love.
