Mars is a Chicago-based street artist. Graffiti is an addiction for Mars who got into graffiti as a teenager because his cousin was a writer. For Mars getting up feels good and is in his DNA. Part of what fuels his art is fame and the ability to gain notoriety for his crew with his letters. Recently, however, his art has been evolving into a more personal and introspective process for this up-and-coming street artist.
