ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jeffrey Sklan presents images of flowers, ranging from tulips to poppies, illustrating the guileless beauty of our natural floral world. Sklan’s work demonstrates the patience of an artist willing to wait for his subject to grow up—literally. Jeffrey lives and works in Los Angeles.
In his desert studio near Palm Springs, sculptor Christopher James breathes new life into discarded steel. He takes dense metal destined for the junkyard and transforms it into lively, often whimsical works of art. His latest exhibition features exciting new sculptures certain to inspire smiles and wonder.
Los Angels artist Spacegoth uses watercolor and fluid acrylics as well as sarcasm and dark humor in her canvases of haunting animals and grim reapers.
In his debut solo exhibition, artist 8333 showcases new work in his signature minimalist pop style. The show explores themes of connection and isolation, through pictograms rendered with precision, sophistication, and understatement. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
