I'm new to Mear One's work. I am not new to grafitti in Los Angeles. I just didn't connect the dots here.

What I find fascinating about Mear's work, is not the art in and of itself, but the speed in which he produces his art. Even though a lot of his stuff is on canvas, he still paints as if he has to do under the cover of night, like the grafitti artist.

On my train trip to Seattle from L.A., I was amazed at some of the grafitti painted in lumber yards, train yards, storage areas, etc. that were real pieces of art.
