Making its first appearance at the LA Art Show,Distinction Gallery has arrived in Los Angeles to present a stunning body of artwork that is a mixture of surrealism, pop and modern portraiture. Established in 2004, Distinction Gallery is a venue whose portfolio can satisfy the eye of any art lover. By representing a variety of artists from different career stages (Emerging, mid-career and veteran professional artists),Distinction Gallery is able to provide a range of art mediums to viewers.
What the gallery has done at the LA Art Show this year is prove why it can become a staple at this art fair. It has demonstrated that a gallery can display a number of pieces consisting of different mediums that are complimentary of each other. Each art piece is uniquely individual, but collectively this body of art illustrates the strong curation of this gallery. As CEO and founder Melissa Walker shares "We strive to find artists who truly standout, not only in their refined craft, but also with their materials and subject matter".
Distinction Gallery will be at the LA Art Show from January 27-31 at booth 635. To learn more about Distinction Gallery and the artists it represents, you can check out their website, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Distinction Gallery is proud to represent the following artists at this year's LA Art Show:
"Jon Jaylo's artworks play around a parallel dream world in where everything is floating surreal and dancing in a contained universe inspired by poetry. His technical depictions are often varying in display and style, as if he himself is never content with the present stature of his works. They are constantly evolving in both idea and form, gradually maturing together with the artist himself. Scaling this balance, narrating a massively deep philosophy of thought through a theatrical rendition of intensely brilliant colors that seem to amuse its audience and present a status of intellectual complacency."
Michael Aaron Williams
"My art is a narrative, visual poetry, making a social statement to move the viewer to action or realization. An important part of my work focuses on the street, the place where people live their daily lives. This allows me to interact with an audience on their own turf and observe how they react to the art; it is a social experiment. These open-air installations focus on the ephemeral state of street people and enable the viewer to participate in the outcome of the pieces, whether the viewer leaves or saves them from the street."
"The women who populate Scott Rohlfs' acrylic paintings are a fusion of the artist's personal experiences and influences. His women exist in a realm of moody atmospheres, tattoo-inspired couture and pop cultural elements. Rohlfs combines classic realism with an element of distortion when painting, resulting in surreal imagery. The eyes of his subjects are often the focal points of his work, imbued with an arresting quality."
