Mister Cartoon at MOCA “Art in the Streets”
Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Mister Cartoon (born Mark Machado) has become famous over the years for his many designs that range from sign painting and graffiti, to automobile murals and magazine illustrations. A master of the ink and needle, his client list includes a wide variety of celebrities like Dr. Dre, Travis Barker, 50 Cent, Eminem, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. For its “Art in the Streets” exhibition, the MOCA has chosen to display several pieces that are comprehensive of his work like a tagged hood and an airbrushed ice cream truck.
