Nobody Walks in LA Art ShowMonday, January 12, 2009
Daily DuJour and Atticus Gallery have teamed up to bring some of the most exciting emerging contemporary Los Angeles based artists to Barcelona for an exhibition during the international Bread and Butter Fashion Fair. The newly launched DailyduJour.com wanted to make an immediate splash internationally and was only too happy to work with the young and fresh Barcelona based Atticus Gallery, whose Director, Tina Ziegler, has strong ties to California and Los Angeles. The show has been titled “Nobody Walks in LA,” as a reference to the stereotypical idea that Los Angeles residents are all the same – when the reality is that Los Angeles has become one of the most diverse cities and cultural melting pots in the world. The artists in the show represent that melding of culture and styles with everything from urban street to abstract expressionism. Artists in the show are both LA natives and transplants and include the following: Yoskay Yamamoto, Nate Frizzell, Scott Belcastro, Tessar Lo, Edwin Ushiro, Amanda Visel, Joe Ledbetter, Cameron Tiede, Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez, Jack Long /David Flores, Jeremy Lynch, Joshua Petker, Nathan Ota, Mike Bilz, Derek Albeck, Ken Garduno, Mike Shinoda, Randy Noborikawa, Steven Daily, Tiffany Liu, Tom Haubrick and Nick Yarger.
The opening exhibition will take place on Jan. 23, 2009, at the beautiful 300 meters sq. Masters Art Gallery, open from 6:00 pm to 8:00pm for press and 8:00pm to 12:00 pm for the public. The evening will include live music by Dj. Tuffist(NYC) and Oli Benet(BCN), along with a selection of drinks and tapas. MYBS willl be presenting a few items from their new Fall/ Winter collection and Relevant BCN magazine has a release of their special artist issue. The exhibition NOBODY WALKS IN LA is the first of its kind in Barcelona and features the works of 23 talented artists, who for many will be their first showing in Europe.
