Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
Mars-1 was recently down in Mexico City at the same time we happened to be working in the mega-city, so we decided to hang out with him while the San Francisco artist painted this mural.

We stopped by the opening reception for Stanley Donwood’s latest solo exhibition, “Lost Angeles” at Subliminal Projects this past weekend. Lost Angeles will feature a new body of work where Donwood extends his poignant perception on the impact of current societal trends and behavior towards Los Angeles. His visual meditation on society envelopes viewers in a beautifully, graphic landscape of impending doom. The fluid black and white scene resonates with honesty and forewarning.

We are going to assume that Christopher Nolan's final chapter of his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, will be entertaining enough and worth some popcorn and a jumbo soda pop, based off the official trailer...
