Artist Mark Paul Deren, better known as MADSTEEZ, recently dressed up Fairfax, Virginia with new murals. WEENsville is a seven-part series and it features his human-animal hybrids called Ween!mals.
Ween means to think or suppose and Madsteez added this word to many of his artworks to describe the way he sees and paints the world though he is able to see it through only one of his eyes. He thought of the concept while growing up in Washington DC and has added the word Ween to pretty much everything he does.
MADSTEEZ is known for his vivid, large-scale, multi-layered paintings, where strange and familiar figures are integrated into abstract landscapes. He has held solo exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, and Tokyo as well as group showings in London, Germany, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Calgary and Art Basel, Miami.
