LA Art Show

Last weekend, the LA Art Show was in town at the LA Convention Center. I know convention centers are created to be versatile, but I am always excited to see how the space is transformed each time. The Art Show this year incorporated a lot more artists that utilize pop culture and street techniques, which is definitely a welcomed change next to all the traditional and classic works. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the show:

Graffy Alley

This morning, I went to the alleys behind Melrose to enjoy one of the most popular street arts in LA, graffiti, before the hustle and bustle of the stores even opened for the day. The main reason I went down to Melrose was to draw inspiration for existing and upcoming trends. Here are my favorite photos I copped today that really appeal to me. Enjoy!

Picasso and Matisse All Over LACMA

I visited LACMA, Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, today with Jeff and discovered an exhibit filled with Picasso and Matisse!! I was absolutely inspired with their use of color and shapes. I also saw the Tibetan exhibit filled with many trunks and statues. I didn’t get a chance to visit all the exhibits currently on view, but here are my favorites from what I saw today:

This little guy made me laugh.

Getty Getty Getty Confetti

Yesterday, I went to visit the Getty Center in Los Angeles up above the I-405. I have only been there once before and that was about twelve years ago. The architecture of the buildings were definitely a lot more beautiful than I remember, and all the works of art were definitely inspiring. I was expecting to see a much larger garden because there are a lot of species of plants, but the garden was kind of small. I am not really a religious person, so I find religious art to be quite preachy and often times creepy and the Getty Center is FULL of this religious art. But anyways, here are some of my favorite pieces from the museum:

I really like the trams they use.
