Painting with my brother RISK has been a long time coming; our last collaboration was in Miami during Art Basel 2012. Whenever I get together with him we go big and hit it heavy. Growing up in Hollywood in the mid-1980s I became fascinated with Risky's freeway burners. He would treat the illegal spot like fine art and take his time killing it. Dope ass letters, 3D's with flare, sick fill ins with highlights and shines, then to top it all off a beautifully designed background to make his burner pop! He represented the top level of achievement and is basically my favorite graffiti artist of all time. I was eventually introduced to him in 1990 by my brother SK8ONE and became a member of WCA (West Coast Artists) crew. It’s a huge joy to look back and realize where we came from and how we still exist in collaboration and joy, thank you my brother for helping maintain our culture and friendship. PEACE, MEAR

Time-lapse of my 2019 Alphonse Mucha tribute mural “Gaia Basking in the Sunshine of Love” painted in my old-stomping grounds the Melrose Alleyways. In this current time full of transformation and uncertainty I wanted to create a piece of public art that pays respect to Mother Nature and the realization that there are bigger cycles taking place. Nature is the ultimate teacher if we listen, if we observe, if we are patient. She is powerful yet in danger of our ignorance, our selfish greed. All levels of being, all realizations in space and time, magnitudes of scale, all parts contain the whole, the lessons of nature have survived the war of mindlessness for centuries and our ground is no longer stable, our skies turbulent, and our oceans raging to give back all they have endured. Be kind to her, become responsible for yourselves. Change the behavior that has brought decay. A new Earth is forming, the future is in your imagination, the past is in your genes, the truth is in your now. Figure out what you are doing here and ground yourself. PEACE, MEAR

My "Pillar of Consciousness” is a 14’ tall pillar of human history, a meditation on humanity’s evolution. In a metaphorical sense, it describes the process of evolution from mineral and bone, beginning with the Human Skull as its material base, evolving into Reptile, our oldest relative walking this earth. From reptile it ascends into a bird, or more specifically a Phoenix to symbolize transformation on into the Cro-Magnon, an enlightened being, finally evolving into the Goddess, the height of human evolution and spiritual growth. It combines ancient symbolism from pre-dynastic Egyptian, Olmec, Sumerian, Vedic, Incan, Mayan, Chinese and Viking culture, mythology and lore to communicate a long lost creation story about who we really are, where we come from, what we are doing here, leading to a deeper understanding of the self. It tells the story of a symbiosis and interrelation of life forms, of ancient mystical interpretations of the metaphysical realm, of wisdoms encrypted into relics left by our ancestors from megalithic cultures long ago, of a conscious awakening, a consciousness that rises out of matter, consciousness being the most powerful act that a living being can experience. I believe that this renewed understanding of our past will help us be more in tune with our now, leading to a more hopeful future for us all. Peace, MEAR ONE
