Illustrator Mario Wagner best known for his Sci-Fi fantasy and cinematic images shares his latest work with Installation. Wagner documented the creation of his mural Living Collage at The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. He utilizes his usual tools, scalpel blade, scissors, glue, and acrylic in a larger scale to become part of the ever-changing landscape of Downtown LA. Mario collaborated with The Standard, Art.com and Snaps! for this project. Reflecting on the work he explains that “the image itself is a futuristic landscape with imposing architectural elements devoid of its central characters. The concept of the Living Collage means visitors first photograph themselves using the Snaps! app and insert themselves as characters into the Living Collage while creating strange and compelling images.” After a two day installation, the project was completed on October 16th and will be on display through mid-December.
