We’re back up north to continue our RAD Napa collaboration with support from the Wine Train and Napa Valley Vine Trail, and this time we are with the mindbending Mars-1. A master of optical illusion and manipulation of dimension and space, Mars-1 creates new galaxies and universes in his work that will be distilled into a microcosm for the rad mural that will be on view for the find folks of Napa. Below is a peek into the mural’s progress thus far this week.

This past weekend Spanish artist Cinta Vidal completed her latest mural in the Napa Valley titled ‘Floating Napa’. This piece is the third mural in the Napa Valley area of Northern California for our curation of the RAD Napa project. Previous murals to infuse the valley with color were done by Felipe Pantone and a collaborative mural by Bezt of Etam Cru and Natalia Rak
Many thanks to the Napa Valley Wine Train for making this one possible.

Stay tuned as the coming muralists for this summer will be announced soon!
“Fresh from the opening of his Lisbon solo show, Felipe Pantone spent four days in Napa Valley working on his latest mural for the RAD Napa project (curated by Thinkspace). Following on the heels of the Bezt x Natalia Rak piece from few weeks ago, the wall from the Argentinian-born artist is the second addition to the upcoming art district in the area.
Known for his digital-based imagery filled with strict geo objects, bright colors and monochromatic elements, Pantone created another public piece that appears as a glitch in an otherwise serene surrounding. Working in much different conditions than the artists before him, he battled the hot sun for four days in order to complete the piece titled Chormadynamica. Conforming to the brick wall structure, he created an effective piece that changes with the observer’s point of view and will surely be exceptional to experience from a moving train.” – Arrested Motion
Organized by Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of Napa’s local arts community, this project aims to transform the existing Cross-Town Commuter Path into a cultural corridor providing an experiential and educational trail celebrating Napa Valley. We here at Thinkspace are honored to be a part of it.
UP NEXT THIS APRIL for RAD Napa:
We’re excited to share the completed mural ‘Chromadynamica’ from Felipe Pantone for the RAD Napa mural project in Napa, California curated by Thinkspace Gallery. The project is sponsored by the Wine Train and the Napa Valley Vine Trail.
