Recap: “All You Can Eat” from Sean Norvet

all-you-can-eat-sean-norvet-la-taco-desilu-munoz-6

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.

Jay Howell-Slow Culture-4x6

Jay Howell is an artist, creator of the TV show Sanjay and Craig, designer of the characters for Bob’s Burgers, a dog lover, an enthusiastic person, and a Forest City Rocker. He told us all this in an exclusive interview conducted via his Twitter bio. He is not a member of the Championship 1988 Dodgers, but we made a baseball card for him (at the bottom) just in case that joke is still fresh.
