‘Year of the Ox’ opens at GR2…

GR2 opened up their ‘Year of the Ox’ group show this past Saturday. I was out and about all over Los Angeles that day as I was taking around David MacDowell (in town for his show with us) and a friend/collector from the UK to all the galleries in LA. GR2 was somewhere in the mix, as we hit a total of 15 galleries throughout the day and into the eve on Saturday. Whew. Bit of a blur, but back to GR2

The show celebrated this year’s Chinese zodiac animal, the Ox. The show had a lot of variation and was pretty strong overall. The show roster included Bigfoot, Deth P. Sun, Amanda Visell, Luke Chueh, Michelle Valigura, David Horvath, Edwin Ushiro, Buff Monster, Joel Nakamura, Le Merde and many more. There was many a Paul Bunyan themed piece and overall the artists’ interpretations of the theme were pretty spot on.

Some of our favorites in the show:

Deth P. Sun

Luke Chueh

Martin Ontiveros

Dan-ah Kim

The show closes on April 15th – be sure to swing on through!

Dan-ah Kim helps to direct latest video from Asobi Seksu…

Dan-ah Kim recently helped create a music video for Asobi Seksu. Dan-ah co-directed the clip with filmmaker Aaron Stewart-Ahn and created the animation that appears throughout the video. The video is for their first single off their new album called Hush. It was made under a very tight budget and even tighter deadlines, so Dan-ah warns us all it may be a lil’ rough, but she had a blast working on it and we thought it would be cool to share it with you all.

Be sure to check out the work in Dan-ah’s current show that’s on view out in NYC at Giant Robot here.

Look for Dan-ah to make her return to Los Angeles with us next summer – already looking forward to that!
