Toile Pop

Mark Dean Veca

Mark Dean Veca’s art has been described as ‘MAD Magazine meets Versailles,’ and I don’t think I can come up with a better analogy than that. Veca has been creating art since the mid eighties, and his paintings, drawings and large-scale installations are pure pop art gold. His work often reminds me of Andy Warhol, if not visually, then in attitude. Warhol’s pop culture iconography made a big impact on the then fledgling artist, who has certainly made the concept his own. I’m especially fond of his toile-esque pieces like the Yosemite Sam above.

“Take some popular culture and marinate it in art history. Add a bit of William Blake and stir in some Renaissance wallpaper patterns. Veca’s work is a wild fusion of ideas and styles. This shows gathers some of the artist’s most recent pieces.”

-Carolina Miranda, Los Angeles Times
