Recap: Scumnasty Strikes Back ~ Stone Malone Gallery

Scumnasty (1 of 11)

"Scumnasty Strikes Back" is the latest show at Stone Malone Gallery featuring the work of the artist Cristian "SMEAR" Gheorghiu. Smear has been featured in numerous group and solo shows throughout Los Angeles, and we've watched his style grow and evolve through the years. His distinct style of painting and unique approach to life is on display in the video "Smear: My SoCal Art History" on Youtube. Check it out at the end of this post, and dive more into what has inspired Smear as an artist and person.

Here is a quote from SMEAR about the show and opening:

Thank you to everybody that came to check out the opening and hang out. To those who haven't stopped by the gallery, do so. It'll be up till the end of this month. I had a great time, it felt good to be back in my city my people. Get ready for my next show that'll open sometime in February 2015 at Gold Haus Gallery in Highland Park. Keep it Scummy.
