FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Group art show opening Blithe Spirits: New work by Sean Chao and Inés Estrada June 11 – June 29th, 2011 Reception: Saturday, June 11, 6:30 – 10:00 pm GR2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd.Los Angeles, CA 90025 (310) 445-9276 Giant Robot is proud to host Blithe Spirits, a joint art show featuring new work by Sean Chao and Inés Estrada. Sean Chao is a Los Angeles based artist from Taiwan. Chao sculpts, paints, and delicately constructs a world filled with curiosity and amusement through creatures and nature. The Mixed-media pieces capture odd moments frozen in time. They hint at a narrative and create an imaginary history. His latest works are inspired by automobiles and nature. Humor is one of the key ingredients in his work. Chao combined and created a world that automobiles and nature can co-exist without pollutions. He plans to have 10 to15 small to medium size pieces of sculptures and drawings. Inés Estrada has lived in Mexico City for as long as she knows. She likes working with any materials she has at hand, as long as the result is colorful and messy. Her work is spontaneous and has no meaning other than you, the viewer, would like to find in it. She also likes making things with her partner Roi, and together they are Café con Leche, name under which they create comics, drawings, songs, sandwiches and plushie bastard children. Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with a shop and gallery in Los Angeles, as well as an online equivalent. An opening reception for the artists will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 pm on Saturday, June 11, 2011.
