Los Angeles! If you reside in NYC or LA, you’ve surely seen stickers all over the place that feature a 40 of Olde English, a bag of Cheetos, rotting fruit and a jug of Coca Cola with the caption “Fresh Produce.” The genius social commentary was made by Patrick Martinez who has a great exhibit at the Known Gallery in Los Angeles called “Hustlemania.” The mixed media exhibit is definitely a feast for the eyes and will give your brain plenty to chew on long after you leave the gallery. I could go on for days about the brilliance of the sad realities of a woman feeding her baby Pepsi while on her cellphone, but instead, I’ll let the following pictures speak for themselves. I should also mention there are so many more great works of art not pictured, so you should definitely see “Hustlemania.”
Don’t miss this really great exhibit! “Hustlemania” by Patrick Martinez runs until April 9, 2011 at the Known Gallery. Known Gallery is located at 441 North Fairfax in Los Angeles.
