MadSteez & Mar Paint Dennis Hopper MuralTuesday, January 17, 2012
The artists Mar and MadSteez teamed up to paint a large memorial mural of Dennis Hopper in Venice Beach.
When my good friend MAR presented me with the opportunity to paint a collaborative mural in Venice Beach, I immediately knew a Dennis Hopper tribute was the only thing fit.
Dennis had been a long time, well loved resident and was a staple in the Venice Beach community.
I personally had a relationship with him after he posed for a portrait I had painted of him back in December of 2006. vimeo.com/12139008
Dennis was an inspiration to all and will 4 ever be missed.
We heard 1,000’s of comments while painting this piece but the one that means the most was when an older gentleman walked up and matter-of-factly said, “It’s about time.”
