Los Angeles native Mister Cartoon employs modern technology in crafting a car-part time machine, reflecting the entire history of America’s love for the automobile. The lifelong car enthusiast began his career as a graffiti artist before branching into murals, album covers, logos and, perhaps most famously, tattoos. Just as his sculptures give a nod back to a time of zoot suits and lowriders cruising to a soundtrack of Motown and soul ballads, Cartoon’s richly detailed, had rendered designs, such as this meticulous hand-painted Pink Tricycle, pull much of their inspiration from the Los Angeles of the artist’s youth.

I was on my way to snag a bargain at TJ Maxx when I spotted this rad graffiti truck parked on Pine Street in the Financial District. The abstract design looks like street art Picasso to me! I Googled the tag, “Cernesto” (visible at the top left corner of the truck) and discovered that the artist none other than Cern, a native of New York City currently based in Brooklyn.

Cern got his start writing graffiti in the early nineties. Continuing to develope as a visual artist and musician, Cern creates murals and exhibits works throughout South America, Europe and South Africa. Cern’s work has also been featured at the San Diego Museum of Art, Museu Brasileiro De Escultura in Sao Paulo, and MOCA, in Los Angeles.
