"Manifest Energy And Radiate" artwork by Mear One at FIFTY24PDX Gallery!!

Upper Playground In Association With FIFTY24PDX Gallery Is Pleased To Announce "Manifest Energy And Radiate" FIFTY 24PDX Gallery presents a new exhibit of artwork and installations from Los Angeles-based artist Mear One. This show is sure to bring out admirers who recognize his graffiti beginning to fine art followers on the international level. "Manifest Energy And Radiate" will feature a live painting by Mear One, as well as site-specific installations drawn from Mear's extensive mural history. Mear One has achieved legendary status among the urban/graffiti art circle on an international level. Born as Kalen Ockerman in Santa Cruz, California, and educated on the streets of Los Angeles, Mear decided at an early age that he would pursue an artistic path. The public nature of graffiti immediately captivated him because it created a place where he found acceptance by rebelliously expressing himself. The late graffiti artist, Skate One (SK8), noticed the potential Mear possessed, took him under his wing, and allowed him to join the revered graffiti crew, CBS (Can't Be Stopped). Together they got into street fights, traveled the coast of California, and experimented with psychedelic drugs in addition to staying out late to paint the town. All of these extreme experiences allowed him to "open up the depth's of his mind to access multiple realities" which is apparent in his art. He has been covered in the New York and Los Angeles Times and has been featured with artwork in Juxtapoz, Art & Antiques, URB (33 issues), and Rolling Stones Magazine. He has been invited to present his art to audiences at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Bergamot Station, and The Laguna Museum of Art. The opening reception for "Manifest Energy And Radiate" will be held Thursday, April 5th, from 6:00-9:30PM and runs through May 26th, 2007.
