Today marks the opening of Ana Bagayan’s second solo exhibit at La Luz de Jesus on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. I made the drive up from San Diego yesterday afternoon to attend a casual preview and to purchase the fantastic painting pictured above — Sparklepus — one of the largest paintings Ana has created in her brief (but very spectacular) career. I can’t wait for the show to end (October 1st, by the way) so I can take Sparklepus home and add it (her?) to my walls. In the meantime, I’ve added the painting to the Collection section of the site, so browse on over there any time you like to see Sparklepus and the other couple of Ana Bagayan paintings I’m very fortunate to have in my collection.
It’s sad that a simple JPEG like that above is all I have to share of the painting. In person, it is very detailed and PDS (pretty damn spectacular), so I encourage anyone in the southern California area to make a trip out to Hollywood to see Ana’s amazing show. In fact, the opening reception and your chance to rub shoulders with the stars is scheduled for tonight… so get out there and enjoy some culture!!
