Recap ~ “Ruin Value” Group Art Show

Ruin-Value-LA-Taco-Desilu-Munoz-26

"Ruin Value" group art show curated by Dan Regan and Nick Angelo opened on January 3rd at Astroetic Studios.  The collection of artwork featured several prominent Los Angeles based artists and focused on "life spans" represented through photography, installations, and illustrations.

After climbing over 17 spiraling flights of stairs, we reached the hauntingly beautiful entrance decorated with funeral-style flowers lit by candles. The immediate cohesiveness of the show's presentation and artwork was both chilling and alluring. We especially enjoyed Spanto's photography, Johnny Vampotna's Neon Scythe (above), Rick Rodney's stark photographs, Adam Villacin's light box, and illustrations done by Nick Angelo.

The packed event had a line spilling out of the door all night. Tons of people eagerly awaited for their chance to get inside the one night only event. We couldn't help but circle the gallery numerous times to get a closer look at each peice brought together by Dan Regan and Nick Angelo. L.A. Taco's Desilu was there to capture the evening.
