One of our local art galleries, Gallery1988, is opening a new show Friday. The exhibit is called “Just Like Us,” and it features Los Angeles artist Mike Mitchell.
According to the gallery:
Mike has created an outstanding body of work, all (very) limited edition giclee prints parodying some of your most beloved pop culture icons in some very menial situations. Whether it’s Super Mario attending a convention (“Furry Con”) or Robin bird watching (“Robin”), Mike has taken the outstanding and made it common. The amount of work Mike has delivered for this show is awe-inspiring, proving why he is one of the most popular artists/graphic designers working today.
There will be an opening reception Friday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm with the artist on hand. The exhibit then runs through April 28. Gallery1988 is located at 7020 Melrose Avenue (just east of La Brea Avenue).
