Todd Ryan White is a product of southern California: beaches, skateboarding, punk rock. He takes himself really seriously, so you should too.
For this show the now Santa Fe-based White has created large-scale watercolor paintings that consist of multiple layers of cut paper collaged on top of one another, giving an incredible sense of depth to the flat, illustrative medium. Inspired by heavy metal culture and fantasy, White presents both a magical and skeptical perspective of the world, embracing the tension between knowledge and the void. White's work has been widely exhibited across the U.S., and he has produced album art and illustrations for various metal bands, record labels, and clients such as Burton Snowboards, Vice Magazine and Blood Is The New Black.
Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, August 18th during the Echo Park Rising music festival. Todd has put together some selections on tape and vinyl from his record label, King Volume, that will be available during the opening. We will be spinning metal tunes by King Volume artists and light refreshments will be provided.
