Marka27 Solo Show Closing and Mexico D-F Recap

After a successful opening night for Marka27's "Neo Indigenous" solo show in Los Angeles featuring
artist "Problak" in the front gallery at Crewest. Marka27 set off to visit his native land Mexico with his lovely
wife "Liza QuiƱonez". The destination is Mexico D-F Distrito Federal. The trip was a total of five days and an
incredible experience filled with politics, culture, ancient history, street art, graffiti, designer vinyl, delicious food and good friends with good vibes! It goes without saying words cannot describe how amazing the experience was. It was a humbling experience seeing the pyramids at Teotihuacan, meeting amazing local artists and designers. Marka27 and Liza would like to thank the people of Mexico D.F specifically Oscar from "Vinyles Chiles" Victor Hugo Celaya from "Arto" Art Beyond Museums, and Gonzalo from "Mammut" for hooking up a wall for Marka to paint on the last day. Thanks also to Libre, and Gato for the beers and good laughs! We hope you enjoy the photos and highly recommend Mexico D.F for your next adventure. Please keep in mind this is the 
last week you can see "Neo Indigenous" @ Crewest so get your ass out there!!!

NEO INDIGENOUS Opens at Crewest Gallery THIS SATURDAY 7.7.12

Victor "MARKA27" QuiƱonez brings his critically acclaimed new body of work

110 Winston St. Los Angeles, CA

Please join us for the Opening Reception: THIS Saturday, July 7, 2012 from 7-10pm

Neo Indigenous celebrates Marka27's highly-anticipated return to Los Angeles. Representing a shift in the artist's cultural consciousness, Neo Indigenous embodies Marka27's quest to bridge past with present, illustrating his yearning to bring deeper meaning to both old and new art forms. By juxtaposing ancient elements with contemporary design aesthetics, Marka27 reveals both a connection and a disjuncture in the process. Challenging viewers to confront the existing practice of commodifying art, the exhibit leaves a lasting impression-- a mark Marka27 has predicated his reputation on.

Using multiple mediums such as paintings, collectible vinyl toys and speakers, silk screen panels, and prints, Neo Indigenous is a sensory feast of the artist's ability to float seamlessly between varying art forms. As a special treat and tribute to a city he once called home, never-before-seen works will be unveiled and the artist himself will create a live installation piece. Having worked with clients such as Pioneer Electronics, VH1, Disney, Scion, and Kidrobot, Marka27's LA premiere is the go-to event of the summer!
