Mark Bode "Bode in Oz" exhibition at China Heights Gallery


Mark Bode
Bode in Oz

China Heights is proud to present 'Bode in Oz', an exhibition by accomplished graffiti artist, tattooist, illustrator and writer - Mark Bode.

For two generations Mark and his father Vaughn Bode have forged an artistic legacy that has had a profound effect on graffiti, street art and underground comics.

In the mid seventies, the iconoclastic Vaughn Bode's comic book characters, particularly Cheech Wizard resonated so closely with the revolutionary spirit of pioneering graffiti artist that these characters were adopted as the mascots of the movement, becoming the first used in graffiti.




In recent years Mark Bode has stretched the horizons of the Bode universe beyond imagination, creating several cult classic comics, perhaps the best known being Colbalt 60, which is currently slated by Zach Snieder for a live action film.

Bode is also something of a nexus for the world street art and graffiti art scene, the heir to the first graffiti characters, a genuinely positive visionary and a backbone of the community he has painted murals around the globe with an extended family consisting of the most respected graffiti and street artists.



Along side the exhibition, Mark Bode will be painting public murals, and conducting a performance of Cartoon Concert - with live voice over and projections - at The Standard, Wednesday February 22, 6.30pm.
