"The original painting was created in 2012 for the inaugural Red Bull House of Art show in Detroit and it is for sale here at 1xRUN. The original painting is 18x24" acrylic on canvas. This was the first piece I created in a body of work that revolves around the connections between Japanese and American culture. In this body of work I'm attempting to explore my love of both cultures and highlight the way each influences the other. For this piece in particular I wanted to show my affinity for the phrase "Moshi Moshi". The phrase "Moshi Moshi" is typically used by the Japanese when answering the phone. Though there are many stories as to what it means exactly (including being a way to deduce if you are speaking with a ghost or because a mischievous fox cannot say moshi), but over time it has simply become a greeting for when one answers the phone.." - Mark Sarmel

Mark Sarmel is the alter ego of Mark Moreno, designer by day, illustrator by night and sometimes vice versa. In general I just try to make as much cool stuff as possible. A graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI., Mark has since been a part of numerous group shows in NY, LA, Detroit and even as far away as Australia. As an Illustrator his work has appeared in Faesthetic, Empty, Design is Kinky, DPI Taiwan, We are Words and Pictures, and Beautiful Decay. As a designer he has worked many years in advertising for clients such as Ford and Chevy and most recently designed the logo for The Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, MI.

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Mark Sarmel and 1xRUN

ABOUT Mark Sarmel:
In another world, mild-mannered Mark Moreno is the secret identity of superhero Mark Sarmel. In this world, they are one in the same, and he spends his time making art rather than fighting supervillains. From a highly advanced secret location, he works throughout the night and day creating works of art influenced by comic books, Asian cultures, mythology, Hip-Hop music and fashion magazines. Trained in the ancient arts of Illustration and Graphic Design at the College for Creative Studies, Mark Sarmel has been spotted pushing his powers of paint and pixel to their limits in such venues as Innerstate Gallery, Gallery 1988, Bottleneck Gallery, Guzu Gallery, and the Red Bull House of Art.
