Robert “Dytch66” Gomez emerged in Los Angeles the 1980’s when graffiti became a lifestyle. Dytch66 brings us his first solo show of 2018: Evolution. He uses motifs and subject matter such as water and animals to exemplify the evolution of his style while maintaining his roots in the LA graffiti scene.
Give and Take
In his second solo show Cyrus Howlett explores the expressive power of hands. He captures the essential role they play in the ebb and flow of creation and destruction; their ability to give and take. Vibrant energetic brushstrokes of red, yellow, and teal pop against fields of raw plywood. The results are fresh, evocative, and unmistakably modern.
Spacegoth has a niche in knowing how to make darkness feel inviting and accessible. The paintings in her latest exhibition depict hilarious grim reapers, endearing devils, and enchanting white-eyed woodland animals. Spacegoth’s new show will invite you to step into the void, and maybe even embrace it.
Using acrylics on various found and assembled woods, Kelton adorns the faces of some favorite artists in the headdresses her great grandfather sculpted onto a train station in Prague. Exploring the theme that art is immortal, Kelton swaps granite for graphite, plaster for paint, and use natural tones to replace ancient, godlike beings, with the fresh blood of the art world; apotheosis through reclaimed, reapplied art nouveau--because "ArtStars are forever."
