McGrath Muniz + Berke Opening @ La Luz de Jesus

Images from the opening reception of  Patrick V. McGrath Muñiz’s “Sacro Consumo” and Shaun Berke’s “Sacrosant”  at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. 11/7/14.



Studio visit: Shaun Berke “Sacrosanct”

Shaun Berke’s “Sacrosant” opens at La Luz de Jesus Gallery tonight, November 7 along with Patrick V. McGrath Muñiz’s “Sacro Consumo”.  These photos were taken in his studio while the show was in process.

The concept of Shaun’s show is an “exploration between being a simple hominid and the principals that we impose on ourselves.” The body of work is very much like an exploration as Berke figures out how best to convey these ideas.

On the shelf books open to painterly pieces by Rembrandt and others gives Shaun compositional study. Literature helps to inspire and self-written motivational reminders keep him on track.

Shaun paints in his Pasadena apartment turned studio, by the north facing window in the dining room due to the consistency of the natural light. In one of the bedrooms, Shaun has setup a workshop with a drafting table which he uses for drawing, and numerous tools which he uses for framing. Some of his frames are found and pieces are created in sizes especially for the frames.

Shaun lives with his cat Otka who likes to hang out when he paints and is also quite good at opening kitchen cabinets!

Steve Budko 
This coming DCon will be my third, and it’s been really interesting watching it grow as much as it has in just the past three years. I first participated in 2012, and in fact that was my first art con ever. I picked a good one. I had a table for the first time at WonderCon in Anaheim this past April. Although it was a great experience, it just didn’t have the intimate DIY vibe and sense of like-minded camaraderie that you get at DCon. Living in San Diego, I try to make it up to LA at least once a month, so the trip to Pasadena for DCon each fall is just par for the course. However, if DCon were anywhere farther away, I’d still definitely make it a point to participate.

Tara Magboo – Magboo
I have been exhibiting my Adorable Mayhem line for the past five years. The biggest venue that I sell at is Comic Con International which I have been selling at for five years now. I have received recognition as a featured independent artist at Comic Con through prominent news websites which include and Mental_Floss. I have sold my work through other comic conventions such as the Alternative Press Expo and Wondercon. In addition, I have, in addition, exhibited at craft venues such as San Diego Mini Maker Fair and the Rhode Island School of Design Alumni Craft Sale. Although I make jewelry, felt sculptures, and small paintings I felt my work was appropriate for the comic convention circuit because all the work that I make has a comic book/cartoon aesthetic. All my work is based on cute and funny yet oddly dark animal characters that I designed. I then fabricate all the resulting work by hand in San Diego whether it be metalwork or wool felting. I feel that Designer Con is a particularly good fit because it is a show that focuses on product inspired by comics or cartoons and that is exactly what I do!

Jordan Gorence – Armpit Lazers
I feel that it is important to go out to Pasadena because the LA area and Designer Con are very diverse in the type of art designers are making and the type of art people are looking for. For me it is just as important to get my artwork out to different people, as being able to see what other artists are putting out there and creating. The inspiration I find from artists helps me develop my individuality as an artist, plus it is awesome to be able to meet the artists behind the works. I have only been doing conventions for about a year and this coming Designer Con will be my 4th convention so far.

Matt Spangler – Robots by Matt Q. Spangler
Hands down, this is one of my favorite events of the year. I have never done a show where the vendors are treated so well (food when you arrive!) and have such a relaxed atmosphere. Typically show setup is chaotic and never well organized, this is the opposite. Also, the venue and quality of people that attend is exactly the demographic you would hope to have at all events!

I will be showing with my fellow artists in my art collective here in San Diego, which is called Basura Social. The other artists I am showing with are Chikle, Optimus Volts, EZ Rock, and Puffer the Blowfish. We will be featuring some original art pieces, sculpture pieces, toys, and clothing. I feel Designer Con is important because it will give us a chance to meet with likeminded artists and art fans that will not only inspire our art, but push us out of our comfort zones and try new things. My art collective is trying to expand our reach outside of San Diego, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I have participated in the Comic Con art show and have been thinking about attending artist alley for 2015. For the past two years I have participated in Comic Con themed art shows during the convention.

Interspecies Planet (by Kurathena Studios)
Tania Kelvin, Founder/Creator/Artist/Author
At Designer Con I will be featuring hand-created figurines, illustration prints, books, probably a coloring book, and other merchandise based on my characters. I’m attaching a couple of them in hand-drawn pencil illustration form. I also am offering commissioned custom figurines. I feel it’s important to travel to Pasadena for Designer Con since I really love that convention and it’s the right place for me and my art. I am especially enthusiastic that it’s a unique, intimate, and energetic convention, which showcases very talented independent artists/designers and has mostly 3D/sculptural art, which is my forte (my collection started as ceramic sculptures). This will be my first time showing my art and being a vendor at Designer Con. It’s a great place to start as a vendor, being that it’s not as huge as San Diego Comic Con. Another artist/vendor told me about Designer Con last year, so I checked it out and spent all weekend there talking to a lot of friendly vendors and doing research. The various types of art, merchandise, talent and imagination of the artists is incredible!

The weekend of October 17-19, I will be having my Interspecies Planet debut in the Artist Alley at San Diego Comic Fest. It’s a small, mellow, intimate convention that I attended for the first time last year and loved it. I felt the panels were awesome, featuring great topics, were close-up, and I learned a lot. As far as conventions/art shows/etc. go…I’m starting at Comic Fest, then Designer Con in November, and will take it from there. I will also be showcasing and selling my variety of work online…which is in development.


Click Mort Best Love Art Treasures Signing!

The World’s Best Loved Art Treasures
Book Release & Signing Party for Click Mort


Wednesday, October 8, 7-9pm
La Luz de Jesus Gallery
Soap Plant / Wacko
4633 Hollywood Blvd,
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Elephant, rhino, and crocodile-headed birds. Dog and cat-headed adolescents. Domestic bliss embodied by rabbit-headed parents and a baby carrot, taking her first steps. Such is the whimsical oeuvre of artist Click Mort, whose remixed nostalgia figurines have made their way into the collections of Mark Ryden, Long Gone John, and director James Gunn, who supplied the foreword to The World’s Best Loved Art Treasures by Click Mort. This tiny, hardbound collection features 88 full-color pages of sculptures that may have once adorned your mother’s mantle piece, but have been transformed into true surrealist masterpieces via scalpel and epoxy. Pick up a copy of Click’s first book and goad him into regaling you with tales of his history as a musician (with The Cramps), stories about his favorite art forgers, and maybe even an anecdote or two about what inspired the art in these pages. Click will be signing alone, but some very special guests have promised to turn up and congratulate him. There will be ample opportunity for Q&A throughout the book signing with the author.

“I hope you enjoy what you see in this book. please look closely at the photos. If you do, thy will make you laugh. If you look closer, they will make you feel. And if you look closer still, they will break your heart.” – from the foreword by James Gunn

“Click Mort creates ‘recapitated figures’ using the parts of different, pre-existing ceramic figurines to create quirky new hybrid statues. Often imbued with narrative humor, the seamless figures also hold a sense of nostalgia as most of the figures source parts from past eras. ” – Hi-Fructose Magazine

Sean Stepanoff’s Folk Art Poke at Silver Lake

As part of La Luz de Jesus’ five-person Laluzapalooza Jury Winners show, Sean Stepanoff’s first featured exhibition at the gallery, “Entitled Hair Cut”, is inspired by the colorful folk art of African barber shop signs and the local “culture” of his Silver Lake neighborhood. Stepanoff , a skilled animator, has a sharp, clean and dark psychedelic style, and is the creator of the large format, beautifully printed compilation art zine “Gristle” featuring contributors such as David Choe, Camille Rose Garcia, Tara McPherson and others, as well as publishing limited digest size publications such as “Freaks and Geeks” and “Eyesore” which contain his instantly identifiable drawings. Stepanoff provided the complete character design for Eminem’s ‘The Slim Shady Show’ & served as designer for a video project of Erykah Badu.

I paid a visit to Stepanoff’s Silver Lake home while he was working on the show in his living-room / art studio surrounded by records and art, snapped some photos and asked about his show.

Stepanoff, also a Wacko / La Luz de Jesus employee who creates in-store graphics for the shop, was guided to the concept for his show by La Luz de Jesus Gallery director Matt Kennedy.

I did a sign at Wacko for these African barbershop signs which are brought in by guy in full African garb, sold to the shop, displayed and resold to the public.

Inspired by Stepanoff’s graphic, Kennedy came up with an idea for a show, featuring “privileged hipsters” on African barbershop signs. Stepanoff took the concept of “hipsterdom” and rolled with it.

The African barbershop signs are created  in what Stepanoff calls a “naive style, which has a charm.” Stepanoff wanted to keep that charm; appropriating the concept by keeping it simple and displaying common trends. “In Africa they’ll do a Two Pac sign or an Obama cut” sates Stepanoff.

Stepanoff’s show is as local as you can get, featuring La Luz de Jesus neighboring Siver Lake icons like the Happy / Sad foot sign (a sign for a podiatrist’s office on Sunset which is a Silver Lake landmark; a rotating cartoon foot, smiling on one side and frowning, holding a crutch on the other. Some “hipsters’ belive that whichever side the sign is on when you pass by, will determine what kind of day you will have), Intelligentsia Coffee, Black Flag tattoos (displayed by people who weren’t even born when the band broke up), sacred geometry, headbands, etc.

“I’m trying to make it look specifically LA, not trying to make it look San Francisco or New York – though I’d love to go city by city, Portland, Seattle! I’d like to do Hall and Oats, looking at each other with their haircuts.

Stepanoff paints on found local wood, sourced from neighborhood streets and alleyways. Using acrylic paint on very porous uneven board presents a challenge to Stepanoff

“sometimes it’s so bumpy that you have to go over several times but it adds a lot of character and after I’ve painted, I age it; I take it outside and slide corners on the concrete, then bring it inside, put it on the hardwood floor face down, stand on it and slide it around. I want them to look just like the ones we sell, which have been outside of the barber shop exposed to the elements.”

Wacko / La Luz de Jesus owner Billy Shire suggested he run them over with a car.

At this time, Stepanoff has sold all but one of the pieces and his show will be up through August 31 along with José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros’ “Profanity Pop” and works by the other four group show jury winners Allison ‘Hueman’ Torneros, JINX, Katherine Brannock and Frank Forte. Pick up that last piece before someone else does! Click here to check out his show as well as all the others!
