Mar and Mad Steez Pay Tribute to The Late Great Dennis Hopper in Venice Beach
Late legendary actor, Dennis Hopper, and long time Venice Beach community member; got some love on a wall recently painted by Mar and Mad Steez.
“When my good friend MAR presented me with the opportunity to paint a collaborative mural in Venice Beach, I immediately knew a Dennis Hopper tribute was the only thing fit. Dennis had been a long time, well loved resident and was a staple in the Venice Beach community. I personally had a relationship with him after he posed for a portrait I had painted of him back in December of 2006. vimeo.com/12139008 Dennis was an inspiration to all and will 4 ever be missed. 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.” –Mad Steez
