In what has to be one of the larger showings of support at GR2, Peter Chan's inaugural solo exhibition, Simple Things shined brightly this past Saturday. His parents came from Taiwan and plenty of friends, artists, students, and co-workers came though and enjoyed the evening. I'd like to thank all of you as a Peter's friend and show host. The works in Simple Things span the gallery and if you don't know him, see @pixelpchan on Instagram. The works are as incredible in person as you see online. His color choices and interpretations are unique and we're happy to host him. See more photos of the opening at flickr.com
Aug 19 - Sept 6th 2017 Reception Sat - August 19th 6:30-10pm 2062 Sawtelle Blvd - Los Angeles, CA 90025 - 424.247.7626 Simple Things - Solo Exhibition by Peter Chan From Giantrobot.com here's an interview with Peter Chan "Peter Chan works in the animation industry as a concept artist and is a neighbor to the shop and gallery. He’s often seen walking his dog Henry wearing a hoody. His recent body of works captures his plein air art in a style that’s his own. The brush strokes are tedious and at the same time appear blocky. The colors are pastel and light, but capture sensitive moments." To read the interview click here
Giant Robot Hawaii 2016 at Ars Cafe Diamond Head. You'll never complain about going to Hawaii, but to have an exhibition there is special. It's a rare occasion that's now two years in a row deep. Let's push for three next year. First the big thanks is to Lofa. For those of you who know him, then it's a repeat to hear that he's supportive to artists who visit Hawaii. Ars Cafe is in the Diamond Head area which is mellow from the tourism and downtown area. The cafe itself faces Diamond Head and you can see the reflections on the hand painted sign window. The gallery space part of the cafe is clean and wholesome. The exhibition looks great...
