Photos by G. Art by Alec Monopoly.
I’ve been writing about Lab Art in Los Angeles since they opened their doors and because I live in New York, I always miss their openings. The stars aligned and I was finally able to attend my first Lab Art opening and it was a big one: Alec Monopoly’s first solo show in Los Angeles!
Alec Monopoly’s art has taken him all over the world (I know first hand because I’ve seen it in several countries) and it was really cool to be a part of such a big night for Alec. If you’ve never been to Lab Art, you should really fix that right away because the space and gallerists are very cool. If you’ve been to Lab Art, you’ll appreciate how impressive it is that the entire gallery was filled from ceiling to floor with Alec Monopoly’s work.
The Monopoly man, Richie Rich, Jack Nicholson, Bob Marley, Twiggy, Basquiat, Madonna and Bob Dylan are all represented in Alec’s art in every size and variation (and the back room also featured black light canvases), plus not one but TWO cars were in the gallery, decorated with Alec’s art.
The exhibit has something for everyone, whether you like street art or seeing interpretations of famous icons and if you are in the LA area, you should not miss this!
“Park Place” Featuring Alec Monopoly will be showing at Lab Art (located at 217 South La Brea) in Los Angeles until April 14, 2013. Don’t miss it!
