Tolerance book by Chris Mars
Chris Mars' painting style, examples of which graced his album covers, is marked by nightmarish landscapes and grotesque distorted figures. He draws inspiration from his older brother's struggle with schizophrenia. 'Tolerance' features 160 full-colour illustrations of Mars' unforgettable and haunting artwork.
Tolerance, the long-awaited debut by American artist Chris Mars, features 159 of Mars' technically brilliant and emotionally stirring paintings as well as numerous essays by Mars regarding the nexus and symbolism of individual works, offering rare and candid insight into the mind of the artist and the imagined minds of the troubled and triumphant souls who populate his canvases. Co-Published with La Luz de Jesus Gallery.
