The origins of the the current Los Trachas exhibition at FF-1051 Gallery is a spontaneous, ingenious pairing between Alison Mosshart (The Kills) and fellow artist, Danny Zovatto. The two naturally let their creativity run wild when they first connected by painting together for a few nights in New York City. Impressed with the organic collaboration and to keep the momentum going, Alison and Danny took up shop at FF-1051 in Los Angeles and prolifically created stunning pieces, across many mediums, in a short span of time for a colorful display of their respective, crazy lives.
We took a visit down to the gallery / make-shift studio before the opening to discuss their motivationsamidst the busy demands of music (Alison) and acting (Danny).
Take a look at the behind the scenes video interview. Also, be sure to visit FF-1051 Gallery on Fairfax Ave. for the must-see exhibition, running through December 15.

The opening reception for “TOYBOX” will be hosted Saturday, December 2 from 7-11pm in Gallery 1 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is open to the public and on view through December 30.

With his unique aesthetic of pop art (i.e. Roy Lichtenstein, while drawing from themes of love and heartbreak, D*Face dominated the gallery floor with large scale canvases, sculptures, installations, and even appropriated romance novels.

Spending significant time in New York during his long-spanning career, Stormie also sheds some light into graffiti culture, as well as what keeps him creatively immersed in his refined craft.
Below are some stills from “A Fish Tale” in Los Angeles, including the outside mural:
