Spray Paint and Graffiti Art

26 year old street artist, Mario goes by the street name, M A R I O E and tags his painting with an M in a circle. I interviewed him on the roof of Santino's restaurant in Santa Monica on Lincoln Blvd. near Rose Ave on 9/19/2014 where he's been commissioned to paint a few murals. He's been painting since he was a kid-about 20years. He earns his living by painting murals these days, but it wasn't always easy for him. In fact, he's still not happy with his work, but welcomes that dissatisfaction-it drives him to make more art and constantly improve
