Dennis Hopper Mural in Venice, CA, by Artists Madsteez and MAR
The most recent news featuring the late Dennis Hopper is a memorial mural in Venice, CA., where he was a neighborhood fixture. Two local artists, Madsteez and MAR, recently completed a mural to commemorate Hopper in the beach community.
A MEMORIAL COLLABORATION
Madsteez, who had previously painted a Hopper portrait, pictured below, agreed to the collaborative project suggested by MAR as an homage to Hopper's legacy as a long time, loved resident in Venice.
"We heard 1,000's of comments while painting this piece but the one that means the most was when an older gentleman walked up and matter-of-factly said, 'It's about time,' " reports the LAist. You can view a video of the mural being painted on the Madsteez website.
