Take a look at this time lapse piece featuring Mear One doing his latest mural on Glendale Blvd. in Los Angeles. Much like his other works, the new piece depicts a young girl on the street huddled under a blanket, while surrounded by an oil field in a toxic wasteland.
“It’s about innocence that’s been lost and how the world has ruined the future of its children and left them stranded in a cold barren and destroyed world that once was beautiful. She’s dealing with the by-products of the decisions of greed and capitalism. I did the mural in that location because people line up there every morning to get on the 2 freeway, and it gives you something to reflect on while you’re sitting in traffic running up gas.” -MO
