BoxEight Gallery/Studio Space in Downtown Los Angeles
September 26, 2009
McQ and I ventured to BoxEight's ONE LOVE For Music event on Saturday night. Aside from enjoying some decent tunes (one of the DJs played Maná's "Hechicera" - oh, late 90's rock en español, how I have missed you), a glass of wine and the great weather of the evening, I met my current obsession: artist MAX NEUTRA.
"Max Neutra has been gaining recognition as one of the premier live painters in the Los Angeles area and is known for his "delightfully twisted" aesthetic and wild live painting shows. It was on stage with bands such as Tweak Bird and Box Violet where Max first experimented with live painting. Since then he has been invited to participate in many large events such as the X-Games and Sunset Junction, as well as at regular art shows in the So-Cal area."
He was working a couple of pieces while we were there. I particularly like the piece that I purchased from him: The Audition. Visit his website and check out the prints and rare originals that he has for sale. They're totally affordable. They're fucking awesome. You have no excuse. Get on it already. Check out some of the photos McQ took at the event.
