6th May – 14th May
Opening 6th May 7:00 pm
1933 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, USA

Utilizing approximately 20,000 square-feet within a historic warehouse in downtown Los Angeles and working across all media (sculpture, digital media, paintings, prints, performance, etc. ) the artists will create a no-holds-barred urban experience. The exhibition will be created out of found objects and recycled material, as the artists embrace the decaying and discarded as a new creative world of possibilities.

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.

painting time

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.

case at Carmichael Gallery

October 2, 2009 · Posted in Artists, exhibitions · Comment 

Carmichael Gallery just  announced The L.A. case, an exhibition of new works on canvas by German artist case. This is case’s first US solo exhibition and the second time he has exhibited at Carmichael Gallery.

october82009
case’s new body of work references imagery from elaborate, self-staged photo shoots using spray paint on canvas. Combining exacting technical expertise with an innovative hint of liberation and irony, he investigates the parallels that exist between the conflicting states of convention and controversy, manipulating beauty in a dark, thrilling and provocative manner.

case is widely recognized as one of the best photorealistic spray paint artists in the world. His groundbreaking technique, detailed in the book Ma’Claim: Photorealistic Graffiti, Falk Lehmann and Steffen Petermann, Publikat Verlags und Handels GmbH and Co. KG, Germany, 2006, has set new standards and established a strong international collector base and fan network.
