We all feel somewhat defenseless with the current powers that be. I wanted to do something abrasive that cuts through all that’s being said and posted in social media. with that in mind, I give you… DICTATORS & MONSTERS.” -KII ARENS

Kii’s work began appearing in galleries around L.A. such as M Modern, Gallery 1988, and his own gallery La-La Land Gallery, which opened in 2004. By 2008, Kii found himself completing major concert posters for the Hollywood Bowl. His concert print creation continues to present, with over 250 pieces created for Artists such as Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Dolly Parton, Stevie Wonder, the Weeknd, Sonic  Youth, Devo, and many more. He also has created posters for various All Tomorrow’s Parties Events, as well as Goldenvoice’s Coachella and Desert Trip, and most recently, Desert Daze.

Kii met LA-based Streetwear lifestyle extraordinaire Miguel Garcia Larios recently this year through a common friend. Larios has been in the Fashion scene for over 15 years, starting his success in Mexico.  He moved to LA and opened the “skater-style” brand De la Barracuda on Melrose Ave, which became highly popular with younger locals. He currently creates high-end couture for US Alteration located in Beverly Hills and opened his own shop, RCNSTRCT Studio, just 6 months ago. RCNSTRCT produces one of a kind, reconstructed vintage and tailored clothing for both men and women. They have already hosted month long  POP-ups for big time companies such as OBEY, Ron English / Mindstyle and Champion.

Kii and Miguel hit it off immediately, realizing they had a similar network and common colleagues.  They decided to combine forces by throwing a POP-up style event utilizing Larios’ new space and giving Kii a creative platform to promote new art. DICTATORS & MONSTERS is a “spooky” themed art show right around the corner from Halloween, exhibiting mixed portraits of the world’s most hated dictators and classic Monsters.

One of a kind Mark Mothersbaugh record For Goodness Sake


Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh has created two new songs which will make their debut only to the ears of those who attend the opening night of the For Goodness Sake group art show at La La Land Gallery. The opening reception is on Saturday, March 25, 7-10 PM and the exhibition is on display March 25, 2017 – April 21, 2017.  These songs have been cut to a 45 RPM acetate, featuring Mark’s hand painted labels; the person who buys this piece will be the sole owner of the only copy of this 45!

Watch a video of La La Land Gallery owner and curator Kii Arens as he visits the studio of Mark Mothersbaugh where the 45 was cut! Preview a few images from the show, below!

As this new “cuckoo pants” year begins, I would like to invite you to take a well needed mental vacation with this new joy-filled For Goodness Sake group art show. The idea is clear and simple. Each artist is being asked to create a brand new piece that elicits nothing but Pure Joy.

With all that’s been going on around the world lately, this will be a refreshing change of pace and a positive new look for the future. We’re excited to tell you we have partnered with Oxfam America (oxfamamerica.org) for this show to donate to Syrian Refugees Relief. – Kii Arens, La La Land Gallery
