BEYOND THE STREETS & CONTROL Gallery are pleased to announce Mister CARTOON’s Just My Imagination, the Los Angeles solo debut of the acclaimed artist and LA native. Just My Imagination highlights the largest body of work for a single show ever created by Mister CARTOON, focusing on airbrushing and drawings on a variety of surfaces, from a metal canvas handcrafted out of aluminum to perfection to the use of candy enamel automotive paint in all of the paintings, including meticulous body lines on a one-of-a-kind customized car within the gallery. Having shown in galleries and museums throughout the world, including stops in Tokyo, Paris, and London, this special occasion marks an unprecedented milestone for Mister CARTOON as his first solo opening in Los Angeles.
About Mister CARTOON
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mister CARTOON was immersed in art from an early age. He began his career as a graffiti artist before branching into murals, album covers, logos, and now most famously known for his tattoos. His richly detailed, hand-rendered designs pull much of their inspiration from the Los Angeles of CARTOON’s youth. CARTOON’s work has helped bridge the gap between those hardscrabble beginnings and the style’s current popularity. CARTOON has gained a worldwide following from his tattooing, with a clientele that includes the likes of Eminem, Travis Barker, Christina Aguilera, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, and Snoop Dogg. He’s attracted a diverse and devoted fan base for his work in other media as well. The result has been highly acclaimed gallery appearances and art shows in London, Paris, Tokyo, and beyond, as well as activations alongside global brands like Nike, Netflix, Apple, Louis Vuitton and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Service to the community has been an essential part of CARTOON’s career, where he is active in outreach programs, sharing his knowledge with young people and devoting time to many community-based initiatives.
