For The Love Of Tiger

null

Talented LA artists and good friends Martin Hsu (above) and Andrew Brandou will celebrate the upcoming Year of the Tiger with their For the Love of Tiger joint show opening @ Munky King on Thursday February 11th 2010 (7 to 10 PM). Individually both artists have created standout pieces in their recent showings – this is definitely a must-see exhibition.

As a first preview, here’s a look at Martin Hsu’s Protect. Revive. (above) which focuses not only on the coming Year of the Tiger but also the global plight of tigers as endangered species. This piece inverts the traditional relationship of children and tigers within Chinese folklore – rather than having the Tiger protecting the children, the Children (in Tiger suits) are caring for the Tiger represented in an abstract from as a tree in the forest. Beautiful work.

The Art Of Avatar

null

This Saturday is looking to be a very busy one, as there are many great art venues you may attend throughout all of LA. Here’s one I just stumbled across and it’s a bummer that there aren’t two of me to go around. If you haven’t heard of Avatar by now, you must be living under a rock in Iraq hiding from insurgents. Here’s a chance for you to get to know the artists who’ve worked their brains out to bring you the amazing experience you get sitting comfortably in front of the big screen. If you haven’t seen it in 3D yet, you are missing out on the whole movie. There will also be a book-signing starting at 6PM. If you definitely can’t be there to get your book signed, Gallery Nucleus can still make your day by letting you pre-order a copy HERE.

And I know we’re all counting pennies right now, so the gallery goes out on a limb for you even further with this deal:

SAVE 15% off the Art of Avatar book or anything in the store! Simply Blog, Facebook, or Tweet the AVATAR signing and Phantasms (Jordu solo exhibition), and bring the printed proof. If you are out of town and want to order the book online just email us a link and we’ll send you a discount code.

Where?

Scion’s ‘Installation 6: Video’ Tour

null

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – January 2010 -Debuting on Jan. 23, Scion launches the sixth edition of its successful art tour, “Installation 6: Video”. The tour opens in Los Angeles at Scion’s own 4,200 square foot Installation L.A. Space gallery in Culver City. The opening reception takes place on January 23, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. and is free with complimentary valet parking and an open bar. The exhibit will run until February 13.

The annual tour, designed to expose established and emerging artists and their work to audiences across the country, features a distinctive selection of international talent and visits Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and Austin, as well as a newly added stop in Wichita, Kan.

For 2010, the tour focuses on the video medium, which emerged in the 1960s and has since expanded galleries into more experimental, kinetic and interactive spaces. “Installation 6: Video” challenged 10 artists to create non-narrative video installations that will transform five unique exhibitions. Artists include: Dust la Rock (Brooklyn, NY), Eric Nakamura (Los Angeles, CA), Saelee Oh (Los Angeles, CA), French (London, England), Ill-Studio (Paris, France), Josh Graham (New York, NY), Monihan Monihan (New York, NY), Mark Mothersbaugh (Los Angeles, CA), PMKFA (Tokyo, Japan) and Sage Vaughn (Los Angeles, CA).

“For ‘Installation 6,’ we unveil a full exhibition of video installations that illustrate how 10 emerging artists and creative icons see the world through vivid movement and color,” says Jeri Yoshizu, Scion manager, sales promotions. “In our continued support of independent artistic expression, we are eager to introduce audiences across the country to inventive works by leading talent in art, music and design who push the boundaries of creativity with every medium they explore.”

3521 Helms Ave.

Global Warming By Banksy

I love the irony in Banksy’s works. I’ve noticed that more and more people are getting into his works because a lot of his books are disappearing off the shelves lately. If you don’t know…now you know. I’m assuming these are his latest hits. If not, then it’s new to me.
