> DESCRIPTION
Western Project is proud to present a selection of works from the new hardcover book:
MARK DEAN VECA: 20 Years. This is the first major monograph on the artist created and published by Zero + Publishing. It contains essays by noted art writers, Carlo McCormick and Shana Nys Dambrot.

MARK DEAN VECA: 20 YEARS is a deluxe over-sized coffee table book which reveals the evolution of work by the respected multimedia artist-including vibrant paintings and drawings, all-immersive psychedelic exhibition spaces and limited edition pieces. Veca's colorful, dynamic paintings pop off the page in bright red, orange and turquoise hues, with curvaceous lines inspired by the underground comic world. His work incorporates everything from pop culture references like Tony the Tiger and Scrooge McDuck to Americana elements like the Lincoln Memorial to the American Flag; to religious iconography including skulls, Buddhas and Ganeshas - all filtered through his own gaze. Veca recently produced a contemporary mural inspired by 18th century wallpaper for the Davies Gallery in the San Jose Museum of Art's historic wing, and he has exhibited throughout the United States, Europe and Japan at museums and galleries including the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His work has been featured in The New York TimesArtforumArt in  America , Art ReviewJuxtapoz and Flash Art. 

Veca is currently working on Year of the Snake, a major site specific installation for ARTPRIZE in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is also currently in the 2013 California-Pacific Triennial, curated by Dan Cameron at the Orange County Museum of Art.
