Today, Pete & I went to the LA Art Show for free thanks to LivingSocial & Slickdeals. Totally scored on that one because it was great. The exhibits were presented in “distinct sections: Modern & Contemporary, Historic & Traditional, Vintage Posters, and the IFPDA Los Angeles Fine Print Fair”.
I thought attending on Sunday meant it would be less crowded but it was packed and full of people looking to see great art and a lot of art dealers and buyers. When you entered there was a great installation that I thought was really fun for the entrance. This is only the beginning of the installation it was draped from this point all the way to where you walk in I would say about 30 ft.
It’s incredible to see how much people are able to make off their art. I seen work up to $45,000 but that’s only what I saw, I’m sure there was art for more than that. Obviously art is subjective so I saw a lot of stuff that I absolutely loved but some things I couldn’t understand. Overall I left feeling really inspired to be creative and also glad I was able to see such awesome art from all over the world. I really liked these Oil paintings from Beijing artists:
While I love fine art and I can’t believe how beautiful these pieces are and how the colors and details are beyond anything I can even imagine doing by hand there was also a lot of great modern/pop art. These were my favorites. Art by graffiti artist Tilt:
Caught a great moment of this kid listening to a video as a part of the installation. I can appreciate parents who expose their children to art at a young age. Tilt’s art is currently being exhibited in LA (Studio City) at the Fabian Catanier Gallery for anyone who wants to check it out.
I also really liked this Einstein piece:
and these cool designer pills.
Glad we went and knowing how much art is being shown in LA, I definitely plan to try and be exposed to more art going on in this city. I’m excited to see more of what comes out of Pete’s new venture, Graffiti House LA as well. The grand opening is around the corner, can’t wait for our family & friends to see it.
