  • Inside Scoop: Find Out MEAR ONE's Inspirations for Latest Release, "New World Revolution"

    mear one

    First produced as a live art piece back in 2007, acclaimed street and gallery artist, MEAR ONE, debuted his first Prints On Wood collaboration titled, "New World Revolution."

    In 2011, MEAR decided to recreate the live art piece as as a large format silkscreen with the late, great Richard Duardo of Modern Multiples. In 2013 he was invited to participate in Paris Digard's Urban Contemporary Sale where the acrylic version of his Mother and Child went under the hammer. MEAR once again worked with the imagery during London's Dulwich Outdoor Gallery Festival (DOG), where he painted a mural iteration of "New World Revolution."

    Available until Friday, May 12th, MEAR ONE, DOG and Prints On Wood happily present this 13.5 x 18 in. print on 1/2 in. thick sustainable birch wood for international audiences to enjoy. On the topic of this print release, MEAR ONE has this to share:

    "I am thrilled to announce my latest release with the good folks over at Prints on Wood. With Mother's Day coming up, I wanted to bring back one of my most memorable images celebrating this extraordinary woman in our lives. She is a blazing beacon of motherly love to guide humanity into a future of profound transformation. Her golden halo bathes us in a warmth of spiritual wisdom, positivity, and choice, fist raised in the sky, not in anger, but universal solidarity and strength, perhaps serving as a reminder to us all that a revolutionary time is upon us, drawing focus upon the courageous role that women and children play in this politically charged era."

  • New Print Alert! Mear One Releases "New World Revolution"

    Just in time for the spring season, which always ushers in plenty of transformative vibes, revered graffiti and political artist, Mear One, hits us with his first Prints on Wood released, "New World Revolution."

    Mear One is one Los Angeles' most celebrated graffiti/street art natives, having made his mark on the city throughout the allies of Melrose Ave in the 1980s, helping birth a localized culture that has since set the tone for community aesthetics in major ways. As a pioneer of his style, Mear boasts countless murals on numerous walls, giving him inarguable clout in the street realm, but as well holds an impactful fine art career-- one of the first graffiti artists to truly bridge the gap.

    Mear holds his place in history as the first graffiti artist to exhibit at Melrose's infamous and highly influential 01 Gallery, as well as Silverlake's 33 1/3 Gallery, where Banksy would later debut his first North American show. Setting a new trend of blurring the lines between "high" and "low brow art," Mear acted as a early component in the art world shift.

    So to begin the spring season off with a bang, Mear greets the POW audience with his very first Prints on Woods release, entitled, "New World Revolution."

    "New World Revolution" embodies strong vibes of strength and rebirth, depicting a woman -- adorned with a yellow rose playing host to a butterfly -- fist raised. In her arms, a seemingly very aware infant mirrors her raised fist, giving off feelings of full circle understanding of revolutionary inclinations. Deep-seated messages aside, the artistry showcased in the new print is totally worth a mention, with its warm shades and lush tones, Mear One makes each of those tricky brush strokes look comically simple.
