Here are some quite impressive works of art being showcased:

Matthew LaPenta, an American born artist from Cleveland Ohio, is represented by Axion Contemporary Gallery in Santa Monica. He is best known for criticizing social media with humorous sculptures like smile faces, devils and Kool-Aid cats with hearts eyes and round heads. Matthew explores the relationship people have with technology.

Sir Cosby has his own company ClockworkCros. He designs these amazing pop culture clocks of musicians, actors, poets and historical figures. He was born and raised in the Lower East Side and is a surrealist clock maker. He likes to explore the consumption of icons. He manipulates them digitally and then hand cuts the images twice before introducing the working clock movements into the eyes of each image, thus creating working wall clocks. There is quite a selection of images that caught my eye, from David Bowie to Kiss; Jimi Hendrix  to Einstein. He is represented by Rare Gallery.

Next was Christopher Schultz. a native born Los Angles artist works in different mediums to create sculptures and 2D wall pieces. He is well versed in figurative and contemporary sculpture and painting. Chris is always using new ideas and applies many cutting edge tools in technology. He claims that art should never lose it’s aesthetic value. That’s why
his shark sculptures are quite realistic.
