Welcome to Prints on Wood!

Art Happenings: Gallery Nucleus + Merry Karnowsky

This past weekend was busy around LA area for a league of talented artists.

A Prints on Wood favorite, Cuddly Rigor Mortis, was at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra on Saturday welcoming us to her solo art exhibit titled “Happy as Kings.”  The show was inspired by a poem titled “Happy Thought” by Robert Louis Stevenson, and features brightly drawn characters blissfully enjoying what makes them most happy.


"The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."

- Robert Louis Stevenson

You may not be able to notice from the pictures included in this article, but the amount of detail that went into creating every single one of these delightful characters was superb! Every piece is titled as “King (Name)” including “King Dunkin” and the uber cute “King of Z’s”.

If you recall last month, POW did a limited time release of Cuddly’s “Mr. Good Morning Waffle” print that was extremely popular. Well now you can catch the little waffle guy in all his glory in the “King Grand Slam” piece!

The exhibition runs through September 21st at Gallery Nucleus located at 210 East Main St, Alhambra, CA. It’s definitely not worth missing!

On the same evening at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery, a group exhibition called “Parallel Universe” featured more amazing talent.

We ran into more Prints on Wood artists, Nathan Ota and Travis Louie, who both had two pieces in the show.

Travis and Nathan joined Caleb Brown, Hello O’ Monsters, Masakatsu Sashie, devNgosha, and Seonna Hongall with their incredible pieces, creating quite a crowd to see their pieces up close.


When we found this piece by Masakatsu Sashie, we immediately were struck by the attention to detail and interesting mixture of landscape and objects to make up an almost "Death Star" effect in his piece.

A Prints on Wood piece was also at Merry Karnowsky Gallery, although it wasn't an artist print, per-say. Merry recently asked us to print her new logo on wood, "KP Projects", a custom size wood print on bright white finish.


“Parallel Universe” runs through October 6th, at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery located at 170 S. La Brea Avenue, LA, if your in the area, stop on in and see the pieces first hand.
