MONGRELZ! July 5 @ Hive Gallery

Hello friends and family,

I would like to invite you to the opening of "Mongrelz- A Hybrid Monstrosity" by me at the Hive Gallery in LA this coming Saturday, July 5th.

I will be displaying 5 new paintings as one of the featured artists.

The theme of my paintings is Mongrelz- A Hybrid Monstrosity. Mongrelz are the result of mass pollution. They're highly evolved freaks of nature that are half land animal and half sea animal capable of surviving in any environment.

In the paintings you'll find intimate interactions between these freaky creatures with kids and other critters. Soon everyone will learn that Mongrelz are not here to destroy, but to protect.

Intrigued? Confused? Please join me-

3 X 3

Here are 3 paintings I'm putting in for the "Crazian" Show at the World of Wonder gallery in Hollywood opening on July 11th.

This show fulfilled my fantasy of blowing up some of my favorite t-shirt graphics into large one of a kind paintings on wood.

It also gave me the opportunity to explore different painting methods. I'm very pleased with the sharpness of the graphic image on top of a destroyed surface.

This is just a teaser for now. I'll post the whole paintings and more information once I get the flyer for the show. Maybe I'll even see some of you there!
