4:46 PM PDT on September 26, 2018

[dropcap size=big]L[/dropcap]os Angeles based artist/activist Mear One invited folks to a private gallery space in downtown L.A.'s Fashion District for a release of his latest painting American Revolution. Below is a quote from the artist himself regarding this latest completed piece:

The purpose of art is not to take you away from your reality, its purpose is to make you think. Art should reflect one’s intellect and facilitate a path of communication that conveys truth and transcendence. So in an era where teddy bears are bad criminals barfing up melting ice cream rainbows exacerbating the apathy of disillusion, for this purpose bad art becomes the rosy glasses of soma and mindlessness. Today I drop my piece #AmericanRevolution in response to my lifetime of protesting the cruelty of our capitalist society. - Mear One

Also released was zine by the artist, "The War on Art". A 4.5x6" 56 page bio-graffix art book on "A Theoretical Approach to Interpreting Creative Freedom in Capitalism." Each book comes with 2 different 25-pack high quality vinyl silkscreened sticker collections. Limited first pressing of 100.
