Buff Monster Attacks Corey Helford Gallery


Buff Monster returns to Los Angeles where he once defaced the streets with his "his trademark imagery in Superflat style, blending pink, black, and metallic silver shapes into an array of squirting scenes. But this time he's doing it indoors (as he has been doing for some time now, actually). Corey Helford Gallery brings Buff Monster's new show “The Sweetest Thing” on Saturday, August 23, and it will run from 7 to 10pm and be on view until September 2, 2008.

"Inspired by heavy metal, porn, kaiju, Japanese kawai culture, and ice cream, Buff Monster is known for changing the land-scapes of Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Barcelona with his iconic Buff Monster character... Buff Monster’s “Pepto-pink” palette bursts into action with a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns, kaiju-inspired characters, and kanji translations of Buff Monsterism’s such as Lick It Up and Extra Creamy."

Along with his new paintings, Buff Monster will have a new limited-edition signed and numbered serigraph on opening night.
