Jamie Heinrich and Zac Hug are looking to make a short film staring Mark Paul Deren (aka Madsteez). He is blind in one eye. The premise? When his eye doctor experimentally restores vision to his blind left eye, an artist is only able to create incomplete paintings. What follows is a story about a man who sees colors, shapes, and people differently than he did before, and asks the question from the film’s opening scene: “Where is the moment and how do we know when anything; art, relationships, lunch — when are these things actually finished?”

Approved by a rainbow! Over the last week, a number of walls in Hawaii have been rejuvenated with new layers of paint from artists around the globe participating in the Pow Wow event. A colorful collaboration wall between California-based artist, Madsteez, and London-based graffiti artist, Roids, turned out nicely and this photo opportunity with a rainbow in the background makes for a great final touch.

California-based artist, Mark Paul Deren also known as Madsteez, recently completed this humorous mural of a strange creature riding a dinosaur through the streets of San Diego.
