Bob Dob - Mario 13

Bold Hype has a new exhibition going on, curated by Nathan Spoor.  They are featuring many popular artists such as Chet Zar, Kathie Olivas, Joey Remmers, and more.  This piece by Bob Dob is pretty creative.  He made Mario a cholo from Los Angeles, with graffiti, shrooms, tattoos, the LA skyline, shoes hanging on telephone wires, money/gold, cigarettes, smoky skies, a shotgun and a red dodgers cap.  There's a lot more subjects that are incorporated in this painting that people from the streets of LA can relate to.  How about the title of this piece?  Thug life.
