Subterranean Heads Part 2

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Went to GCS Santa Ana’s Subterranean Heads 2 Art Show.  Good Show. Lot’s of fantastic art, cool people, and a great atmosphere.  I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Mear One, one of the Los Angeles’ most talented artists.  He was approachable and down to earth.  We talked a little about his development as an artist and his subject matter.   It turns out that Mear One and Splat actually curated the show.  If you ever have the chance to go to the Santa Ana Art Walk-YOU SHOULD, and make sure you visit GCS Santa Ana when you go. Here is a little video synopsis (hey, I’m still practicing for may Spain Football Trip), and after the jump are some photographs of the Art Show.

GCS Santa Ana Art Show

Santa Ana Art Walk Wanderings Part Dos…or this is what was going on at GCS Santa Ana.  They were hosting a $50 and under art exhibit.  Basically, all the pieces that were available for sale were priced at $50 or less….To say the least-It was packed…”sardines in can” style, or to be more current “8 people in a smart car” style. So….I was  only able to snap a couple of shots of the art and a couple of the master DJ at work….THE WIZARD was on the 1’s and 2’s. In any case here are the photos:
