With his swooping patterns, vibrant abstract shapes and masterful manipulation of letters, he has attained legendary status.

GF: Can you tell us about your recent trip to Instanbul and how that experience shaped this latest body of work during the residency? Carlos Mare: I was invited along with 20 other artists to Istanbul by curator Roxane Aryal and the Pera Museum to take part in a show called Language of the Wall. The whole exhibition was an onsite presentation of contemporary Urban Art painting and Sculpture.

We talked to Moneyless in the Fall of 2014 about his signature geometric style and what might be in store for 2015. He mentioned a new direction, something he was searching for as well as a move towards something new.
