TribeLA Magazine Acrostic Interview.3
Los Angeles: Where is your favorite place in Los Angeles? Where would you take visitors? If you could defend the city in one sentence to someone who doubts it, what would you say?
My favorite place in LA is probably Dodger Stadium. I would take visitors to see my brother’s band, DMTina and the Bumps, or to a Dodgers game, though a punk rock drag show and a three-hour baseball game are acquired tastes. If you doubt this city, drive one mile in any direction and give it another chance.
Advice: What is the best advice you’ve received? What is the best advice you can give?
Best advice received: You want no stink of that boring shit. Best advice given: The future will get weird.

Other works by Adam Mars:
Rachel. The portraits that I paint blend my love of Renaissance and Baroque art with contemporary digital aesthetics.
Britney. I made a series called Deep-Fried Tabloids where I literally deep-friend tabloid magazines in hot oil and tempura and sealed them with resin.
