Parker’s Red Tiki Lounge combines the paint stroke of old Flemish masters with counter culture subject matter from a childhood of adoring comic books, cartoons, and Universal Monster movies. This show features skate decks, beach towels, pencil sketches and paintings, and we’ll be celebrating July 4th with BBQ and a live band. Brad will be present at his opening reception to sign cards, calendars and prints. Contact Matt Kennedy, Gallery Director for availability and purchase info: (323) 666-7667
Damian Fulton “Rad!”
July 4 – 27, 2014 Opening Reception: Friday, July 4th, 8-11 PM
Before the X Games, GoPro videos, and energy drinks, a kid with an over-productive Rad gland virtually invented extreme sports. 35 years ago Radical Rick first raged through the pages of BMX Plus! Magazine and launched the career of Artist Damian Fulton. Since then Radical Rick has appeared in over 150 comic episodes, on T-shirts and posters, more than a few tattooed body parts, and continues to influence artists today. To commemorate Radical Rick’s 35th anniversary, “Rad!” brings to La Luz de Jesus gallery the largest collection of original Radical Rick artwork ever assembled, featuring original paintings, magazine covers, and beautiful water colored story pages from the artist’s personal collection. “Rad!” also includes new, never seen before artwork painted just for this exhibit.
Influenced by Zap Comix, motorcycles and hot rods, horror movies, classic cartoons, and a dose of Mad Magazine, Damian Fulton still paints today and his “Urban Surf” art is exhibited around the world.
