MY FAVORITE WORKS: LA ART SHOW & CONTEMPORARY

February 1, 2013

Last week I took advantage of the art forums that were happening across the city by attending the opening of The LA Art Show and visiting the Art Los Angeles Contemporary .  Both shows had a significant amount of influential art including photography, sculpture, mixed media and modern art forms.  I always find so much inspiration from looking at art and this time was no different.  To me, art influences and is the catalyst in starting all emerging trends across the board from fashion to music and technology.  Art is where the happenings start.  My creativity works best by ingesting all of these visual stories and then letting the dots connect in my brain to output the story that is being told.  I saw several stories while strolling thru the gallery and wanted to share the pieces that inspired me most.
