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

‘The Garden of Eye Candy’ recently came out and is a must own. While the ads that are running in various magazines don’t do much justice informing one what awaits inside, I just picked up this great collection and it really offers up a great mix of up and coming artists.
