David Choe returns to L.A.

April 29, 2010 · Posted in Artists, exhibitions · Comment 

David Choe’s returns to LA after a six-year hiatus from exhibiting in his old stomping ground. The extremely prolific Choe has been hard at work creating new paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the 8,000 sq ft space in Beverly Hills.

LA-GAllery FINAL

Driven by an unquenchable thirst for life, Choe saps every possible drop of experience – good or bad – out of his tremendous adventures. From incarceration in a Tokyo jail to hitchhiking down the Mississippi River via paddleboat, freight train hopping city to city and hunting for dinosaurs in the Congo jungle, David weaves these encounters into his work projecting a dramatic and fantastical, often sexually explicit, vision of the world.

As one of the most technically proficient artists around today, no media is left untouched. Utilizing a combination of spray paint, oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and urine, Choe works his magic on wood, cardboard, polyurethane and canvas. From the artist who first exhibited in an ice-cream parlor, expect no less than a sensory melting pot of life seen through his eyes.

Heavily influenced by the subcultural paradigms of comic, skateboarding, and tattoo culture, Alex Young draws upon a rich reservoir of influences to produce his heavily stylised illustrations and meticulously rendered portraits.

SAM3 at Pretty Portal Gallery

April 23, 2010 · Posted in Artists, exhibitions · Comment 

Pretty Portal Gallery announces a solo show with SAM3 in may.

The artwork of SAM3 is ironical, poetic and inspiring. SAM3 is well known for his large scale black and white paintings that remind of shilouttes or shadows.

His paintings focus through the reduction of colours and clear shapes and theirintense presence is like a magnet to the observer.

His works are dominated by figurative elements, which are in the state of metamorphosis. His protagonists are growing from the wall and stick stick to their surrounding by large roots that  develop out of them.

SAM3 is born in spain, lives in Madrid, but his artworks can be seen around the world. Besides his paintings he produces experimental stop motion shortmovies.

Exhibition: 07.05. – 04.06.
Vernissage: 07.05. 19-23h
