Since we first featured his work on our blog in 2011, Mark Garro has considerably evolved his style in his latest series. The artist seems to have turned the dial down a few notches from “epic, apocalyptic sci-fi,” now focusing in on fantastical scenes with a more illustrative, narrative quality. Playful characters (even Spongebob makes an appearance among the muses) and busy details remain a hallmark of his work, but now with more direction and focus. Garro’s solo show, “Atom’s Eve” will debut at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on October 13. Take a look at our preview courtesy of Copro Gallery.
