  • Ron English "NeoNature" Opening @ Corey Helford Gallery

    ron-english-neonature-corey-helford6

    NeoNature, a colorful dive through the mind of contemporary pop illustrator, Ron English, opened this Saturday, December 12th, at the newly unwrapped Arts District location of Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery.

    On view now till January 9th, the premier show centers around the theme of evolution— described by the show's press release as "the flaw that propels civilization." Showcased throughout the body of work, English offers up a multitude of mediums to make his point, ranging from paintings on canvas, to sculptural figures to poignant pieces of performance art depicting what appears to be an evolved species of gun-wielding cow.

    Within the show, English offers his adaptation of the concept of 'evolution,' breaking down what the word means for an array of creatures; expect diabolical looking chihuahuas and ruinous reptiles among others.  In his usual fashion, English bites off a fantastically large existential topic, producing work surrounding the notion of evolution that is of course elite in its execution and mastery, but is wild, absurd and completely punk rock.

    Attended by hundreds, the show brought out many appreciated attendees from the curious general public, to collectors and local artists. The crowd that night included POW artists Greg "Craola" Simkins, Lola and Luke Chueh, as well contemporary favorites Shepard Fairey, Gary Baseman, Brandi Milne, Shag, Korin Faught and Natalia Fabia.

    The Carnival of Astounding Art will present a sampling of all the art and artists that have contributed and have been a part of Bob Self's events and book publishing.  We have had the privilege to be a part of two of the Beyond Brookledge events in 2014 and 2015. We were able to donate two fine art prints on wood, "The Amazing Mort" by Travis Louie and "We See What We Seek" by Zelda Devon, shown in the top and bottom photos.

  • Aaron Paul - art collector

    Walking up to a signed HPM at Shepard Fairey's opening of "50 Shades of Black", price book in hand, I hear a familiar voice ask, "Where did you get that?"  Everything clicks the moment I look up, but I still expected him to belch out "Yo! B**CH!"

    I don't know much about Aaron Paul, other then we seem to share an affection for similar artists.  Last weekend he walked into another Prints on Wood featured artist solo gallery show called "The Younger" by Lola.

    Aaron compared his new found love for Lola's work equal to that of Mark Ryden. His Instagram post went on to say "...she is now becoming one of my favorite artists to follow. Not only is the world she paints in beautiful and unbelievably poetic, like a childlike dream, she herself is incredibly sweet and kind. This piece is called "Book Soup" and I could stare at it for hours."

    From what we heard, he hung out for a couple of hours just chatting and being... normal.  Why does it feel so oddly unique when a famous person acts like.. I don't know.. a regular person?  Probably because it is so unusual.  He did do something even more humbling and incredibly sincere, he bowed to Lola in a show of respect for her talent.  If I wasn't a huge fan before, I am with out a doubt one now!

    But we actually were huge fans before, caught up in the Breaking Bad obsession we fashioned our sustainability page with suttle references to the show.

    What better way to brag about the 200 solar panels on our roof?

    If you find yourself as taken with the piece as Aaron is, Lola has released an edition of twenty signed and numbered limited edition fine art wood print of "Book Soup", 18x24, $300.

    The show was a work two years in the making, beginning after Lola's move to Bristol, England.  Finally commencing after a long move back to LA earlier this year.  A celebration of patience and beauty each piece is a sight to behold.
