“Ruin Value” group art show curated by Dan Regan and Nick Angelo opened on January 3rd at Astroetic Studios. The collection of artwork featured several prominent Los Angeles based artists and focused on “life spans” represented through photography, installations, and illustrations.
After climbing over 17 spiraling flights of stairs, we reached the hauntingly beautiful entrance decorated with funeral-style flowers lit by candles. The immediate cohesiveness of the show’s presentation and artwork was both chilling and alluring. We especially enjoyed Spanto’s photography, Johnny Vampotna’s Neon Scythe (above), Rick Rodney‘s stark photographs, Adam Villacin’s light box, and illustrations done by Nick Angelo.
The packed event had a line spilling out of the door all night. Tons of people eagerly awaited for their chance to get inside the one night only event. We couldn’t help but circle the gallery numerous times to get a closer look at each peice brought together by Dan Regan and Nick Angelo. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to capture the evening.

Stay Gallery hosted the opening of Sean Norvet‘s first solo show titled “All You Can Eat”. We were able to get a peek inside of Norvet’s mind when we interviewed him last week, but he still managed to surpise and amaze the crowd with his fine artistry and craftsmanship.
The details that went into Norvet’s pieces were remarkable, each idea was full of inventiveness and executed perfectly. It was as if Norvet had a team of artists to complete the pieces, but Norvet did it all. From the giant oil paintings, to the lifelike taco plate (our favorite) and the life size sandwich shop, Norvet created a little world inside of Stay Gallery. A little world we highly suggest you check out. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to capture some of the evening. All You Can Eat is on display until the end of this month.

If you’ve attended a graffiti event or underground art show in the past few years you’ve likely seen our event coverage editor, Erwin Recinos. Camera in hand, family in tow, he covers this city’s art scene relentlessly and with style, warmth, and passion. In this new feature, travel with Erwin across the city as he explores the events he covered for us over the last two weeks. Los Angeles is alive with graffiti, street, and underground art and this is one man’s visual diary.
“End of the Beginning” opens at The Seventh Letter Flagship Store on June 28th – TRAV opened his latest show “End of the Beginning” at the Seventh Letter Flagship Store back in late June with all new works. Stepping away from the graffiti style he is best known for, Trav’s latest paintings emphasize word play and contain elements of traditional sign painting and geometric patterns. The bright color schemes made the shapes, patterns, and words pop off the canvas in a typographic 3-D effect. To see more of TRAV’s work visit him @travmsk on Instagram.

The internet was atwitter today at the possibility of Banksy bringing his NYC outdoor ‘residency’ to Los Angeles. The speculation was furthered by a website that popped up, BanksyLAX.com, and an instagram account featuring a particular Banksy work that was seen on the streets of LA a few years ago.
Turns out the site was registered by Julien’s Auctions, not Banksy, and is an attempt to hype the planned December auction of a work that Banksy stenciled in Los Angeles that was chiseled off the wall and will be sold to the highest bidder.
