Due to sizing, this RUN does not come with a framing option.
We welcome back Mear One as he returns with Dawning Of A New Age. Over sized to capture amazing detail and rich color, this original work was shown 2011's landmark Street Cred exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, and will be a part of Mear's exhibition at this weekend's Beyond Eden hosted by C.A.V.E. Gallery and Thinkspace.
"Suppression and Oppression have left us disconnected from each other, ourselves, and the universe, from ancient wisdom, knowledge and understanding of all that was, is, and could be.Yet, despite what lies secret behind our vaults, I can’t escape the fact that we are all these subjects, they belong to all of us, for what has endured the whole of history is the idea of spirit linking us to a universal connection of a higher dimension, and our liberation exists somewhere within this state of wide-awakeness. All is but temporal in our eyes, castles made of sand await the hands of consciousness to reinterpret its matter...” - Mear One

ABOUT Mear One:
Mear One (Kalen Ockerman) has been at the forefront of Los Angeles’ graffiti and mural culture for nearly three decades. He is famous for having pioneered the Melrose graffiti art movement in the late 1980's and is considered by many to be LA’s most prolific public muralist. Early on in his career, Mear gained his recognition for building the bridge between graffiti art and fine art. He was the first graffiti artist to exhibit at the infamous 01 Gallery on Melrose, as well as at 33 1/3 Gallery in Silverlake, where Banksy would later debut his first North American show. Mear One’s work was part of the landmark Art in the Streets 2011 exhibit at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. He is perhaps best known for constructing powerful narratives juxtaposing philosophy, ancient mythology and modern politics to inspire an evolved consciousness. This interpretation of reality is achieved through balanced dialogue between SURREALISM and the METAPHYSICAL. Mear One helps us envision the sublime spirit of our time – not by escaping reality, but by confronting it head on.
