Masakatsu Sashie returns to Los Angeles this Wed…

Sashie show

‘Twentieth Century Boy’
Featuring new works from Masakatsu Sashie

Opening: Wed, Sept. 30th 7-11PM
1637 Vine Street in Hollywood

This coming Wed, September 30th, Dr. Romanelli and Eric Nakamura (Giant Robot) will be presenting Twentieth Century Boy, a one-night show featuring new paintings by the one and only Masakatsu Sashie paying tribute to T. Rex. For those who don’t know, T. Rex was a 70s British glam-rock band led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Marc Bolan, probably best known for their hit “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” from the album Electric Warrior. Apparently, Sashie is a big fan of the band, and has created a series of works that incorporate images of T. Rex into his ominous and futuristic orb paintings.

The show is a benefit for the Light of Love Foundation, which is raising funds to build the Marc Bolan School Of Music & Film in Sierra Leone, West Africa. For more info, go to trexlosangeles.com.

Halloween plans?

neckface in miami

Book your tix to Miami now for this Halloween! Can’t think of a better way to ring in Halloween then with a solo show from the nasty NECKFACE himself.

O.H.W.O.W. Gallery in Miami may never be the same after this…

NECKFACE
Devil’s Disciple
Opening on Halloween – October 31st 
3100 NW 7 Avenue in Miami, FL

NECKFACE will deconstruct all 10,000 square feet of O.H.W.O.W. and build a world like no other. Featuring a large-scale haunted house installation, complete with his iconic imagery, the Devil’s Disciple exhibition is designed to frighten viewers as they enter the space.

Word has it the new works are his best yet incorporating several new elements. Time will tell, but the whole vibe of this show just sounds amazing. Haven’t heard yet how long this is up, but O.H.W.O.W. always throw a good party for Art Basel in December… one can only hope this stays up that long!
