After a career that spans decades, Mister CARTOON has established himself as an artist with an admired and unique vision, bringing to mind his signature style of airbrushing, intricate drawings on diverse surfaces, and candy enamel automotive paint.

Born and raised, as they say, he began as a graffiti artist before venturing into murals, album covers, extraordinary tattoo work, and myriad logos. His artwork draws inspiration from the vibrant culture of Los Angeles, reflecting the emotions and experiences of growing up in this city during the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s. A solo show like this in Los Angeles is a milestone, following acclaimed shows across the globe in Tokyo, Paris, and London. Visitors encounter a body of work that collectively takes them into his mesmerizing fantasy world, the high gloss nostalgia, the fusion of car culture, graffiti, and tattoo – a haze of musical history accompanying his ride.
