G and Buff Monster

At the opening for his latest solo show, “Beyond the Pink,” I met artist Buff Monster.  His exhibit is now showing (through September 23, 2010) at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles and it’s really cool, so I highly encourage you to check it out.  When I initially tried to take a photo of myself and Buff Monster, I had a hard time getting his hair in the frame, so I asked my friend to take the picture that you see above.  Little did I know, when I was attempting to take the first photo, he was documenting what it looks like from behind.  Genius!  Special thanks to Buff Monster and Sark for the fabulous photos!

Los Angelinos – you must see “Beyond The Pink,” the latest exhibit by your city’s Buff Monster at the Corey Helford Gallery.  As you can see from the images above and below, LA based artist Buff Monster loves the color pink, heavy metal, Japanese art and ice-cream.  According2g, those are all good things.  On my working/vacation of LA, I was fortunate enough to attend the gala opening and it was a blast.  A DJ spun a nice selection of music from Led Zeppelin to Metallica, free ice-cream was given to guests, artists such as Joshua Petker were spotted in the crowd and the great art from Buff Monster was all over the walls of the really cool space at the Corey Helford Gallery.  I met the artist and a photo of my encounter with him will be coming soon, so stay tuned. He has the best hair ever!  It’s too bad that Gail of the Worleygig was not in attendance with me, because this exhibit would surely have made her “Pink Thing of the Day” column. The Corey Helford Gallery is located at 8522 Washington Blvd. in Culver City and “Beyond the Pink” runs until September 23, 2010.  Don’t miss it!
