Just earlier this week we presented you an exclusive feature on artist Andy Howell. We continue our interview series with another outstanding artist – Marc Dean Veca.
Painter, drawer and installation artist Mark Dean Veca (1963, Los Angeles) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Vecas painting is characterized by either willful psychedelic or nature and rococo wallpaper inspired patterns. Apparently unspectacular compositions in which Veca hides iconic characters from fairy tales, cartoons and the pop world. In this peculiar manner Mark Dean Veca combines conflictive elements from current history and nature.
His work has been shown at the PS1 / MoMA and several of his pieces are in possession of the prestigious Deutsche Bank collection. Many of you have also seen his recent work in collaboration with Kaws and Original Fake.
With his upcoming exhibition at the Milieu Gallerie/Artspace Bern (starting tomorrow, February 22nd), we had the chance to sit down with the artist and had an in-depth conversation about his work, his life and his inspirations.
