AIR MAX BOX LA

After taking down the artwork from the BRANDALISM show at illest LA, Antonio, Shelly, and I walked the two blocks to the Nike SNKRS Air Max Box. It was the last of the three-day pop up event that celebrated Air Max in a larger than life digital shoe box in the center of the Little

INSIDE: LOUIS VUITTON SERIES 2

Been holding on to these pictures for a minute. Forgive my delay; I had a show to curate/open. Louis Vuitton Series 2 was the public, unconventional, consumer-facing, 2 week exhibit held here in Los Angeles last month. I had a chance to check it out before it closed and I’m so glad

HELLO KITTY CON

For me, Hello Kitty and Sanrio in general, defined a lot of my childhood. Growing up, my family would frequent this Chinese restaurant that was situated in the same plaza as a Sanrio store. I loved eating there because I knew that after my meal, I’d be treated with Hello

KAWS: MAN’S BEST FRIEND

Get off work early, and go see some art. I think that should be my new mantra… I spent an afternoon on the Westside and had a chance to see the latest KAWS exhibit, “Man’s Best Friend”. I’ve managed to see every one of the shows he’s had at Honor
