Edwin Ushiro Show at Sloan Fine Arts


How much do I envy New Yorkers right now? LA-based artist Edwin Ushiro's new solo show is opening in New York's wonderful Sloan Fine Art on March 24th, and it's full of Mr. Ushiro's typical eye-popping gorgeousness.

"The content of Edwin Ushiro’s work is as richly layered as the works themselves. Influenced by the memories and folklore of his childhood in Hawaii and with nods to Japanese Anime, he creates his own mythology populated with modern characters and contemporary references. With 'At Night, Lights Fell and Loved Ones Returned Home,' Ushiro utilizes his technique of layering paint, ink, graphite, varnish and iron transfers on vinyl sheets to create romantic, luminescent works that focus on the mystery, and histories, held by abandoned and forgotten places."

At Night, Lights Fell and Loved Ones Returned Home by Edwin UshiroReception: Wednesday, March 24th, 6 to 8 pm
Exhibition: March 24 to April 17, 2010

Alexandros Vasmoulakis at LeBasse Projects


"Is Everybody Happy?", a solo exhibition by Alexandros Vasmoulakis
at Lebasse Projects
March 20th – April 17th, 2010
Opening reception: Saturday, March 20th, 7pm-10pm

"Alexandros Vasmoulakis is mostly known by his work in the streets of Athens, as he has painted on and embellished various buildings across the city of Athens, Greece and is expected to do the same here in Los Angeles. While recognized for his street work, Vasmoulakis’ paintings are beginning to reflect the maturity of his work as an artist.

His works’ main theme is the psychology of his figures. The struggle, the element of the conflict dominates in the pairs of his figures and in each character separately. With the perceptive analysis of his characters Vasmoulakis achieves through his work, he persuades us that he has penetrated into their mentality by holding a role of a competent and gifted anatomist, of an expressive soul searcher."
