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.
Photographed as Part of Beyond The Streets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Sergio Garcia’s tiny sculpture under a bell jar, cleverly entitled It’s Knot a Bike, was photographed at the Joseph Gross Gallery in the Chelsea Gallery District, where it was part of their Winter Group Show.
