the Artzept design award represents a huge opportunity for creative individuals to showcase their talents and contribute to the development of the art and design industries.

Monolith light sculpture’s body is made in several phases. Constructive parts of the sculpture are shaped with stainless steel wires and profiles, welded, chrome-plated, or plasticized, depending on the agreement. After this first phase of skeleton making, we start to work with UV-resistant acrylic glass or polycarbonate. The sculpture is built by joining and bending previously prepared plastic segments.

The combination of colors and shapes comes to the fore making this technique alive and always different.
Due to the work in layers and the use of light, the sculpture has two faces. One is when the light is off, and then we only see one look, texture, and color on the very surface of the sculpture. When the light comes on, you get a broader picture of the form, its depth, overlaps, color mixing, etc.

The stainless steel base is mounted on a concrete foundation. There is also an option for this sculpture to be solar-powered, in both cases, it has an LED lighting system inside.

Art guides us through time, from the moment when we are crushed by an immense and dominating Nature, to that moment of serenity when we have learned to understand her and work in harmony with her laws… the history of civilization, as also the history of the individual.

Le Corbusier

The bull is a complex figure of symbolism. At once masculine, strong, and sturdy, a figure of anger and aggression, too often is the victim. 

Traditionally, the bull symbolizes stamina, fertility, and hard work. Today, it’s often killed in a show of strength, surrounded in the act of ritual, tamed, and reduced of power by a superior man.

With this bull sculpture, I didn’t want to show just the raw side but rather a movement, feelings, and tension, a step into the unpredictable world. A bull is a character out of appropriate social clichés. Symbol of fire and Earth. A hero for a cause greater than himself. A simple representation of nature as a divine, gentle, powerful, and unpredictable creator of things.

Los Angeles Jan 13th, 2022. Haleh Mashian, a prolific painter and owner of MASH Gallery is set to return for her second groundbreaking exhibit at the W Hotel Hollywood in conjunction with Frieze LA. The À GOGO II exhibit will debut on Thursday, Feb 17th, 2022, an invite-only red carpet affair.

The much-anticipated exhibit is a continuation of Mashian’s outstanding show in 2020 which had record attendance and received critical acclaim. Haleh has been climbing the curatorial ladder with exciting and innovative exhibitions securing her place as a creative force in the Los Angeles art community. As an artist herself, she also has a unique talent for inviting established artists and discovering new and emerging artists. 

Previously produced and exhibited À GOGO in 2020 at the W Hotel and the impressive downtown Mash Gallery in the Arts District.

Although the 2021 exhibit was postponed due to the pandemic, Haleh put her positive spin on things and used this time to seek out and work with unique artists. Mash Gallery promised to produce a larger-scale show and artists and the gallerist have delivered just that. Two years of precise dedication and commitment have paid off to ensure the 2022 exhibit will be a stunning and memorable experience for all artists, art lovers, and the creative  Los Angeles community. This is not to be missed. 

À GOGO II  will consist of a collection of unique works from local, national, and international artists. The viewers are invited to new ways of exploring abstraction through a variety of mediums. The talented artists will come together to create a cohesive yet dissonant exhibition where each painting stands alone and yet lends itself to be part of full orchestration.  The simplicity meets the unconventional palette, values, visual color contrast, which excites the eye and evokes imagination, and involvement. This assertively dynamic, raw, edgy, and uplifting exhibition will explode into a visual ecstasy. 

 

Mashian is extremely supportive of all talented artists and this is evident in everything she does creatively. Her passion and commitment to her gallery and to supporting her fellow artists are second to none. “Color is life and life is color. Every chakra has a color. As if nature constantly reminds us that our divinity is intertwined with colors. To live life fully is to embrace all the nuances that color brings to our daily lives.” Said Mashian.

AFTER THE RAIN – MARKO GAVRILOVIC SOLO SHOW AT MASH GALLERY

I’m excited to announce my new solo show. This time we are going to Los Angeles. Luminous artist, Marko Gavrilovic, returns to Mash Gallery with a solo exhibition, After the Rain, opening July 10th, 6-10 pm

GAVRILOVIC’s visual style employs elements of comic book art, stained glass complexity, and saturated primary colors that showcase his finely tuned drawing skills. One is never done observing a work by Gavrilovic. The sheer detail of his work is borne of multiple sketches first in his artist’s journal which are then carefully recast to larger surfaces. The startling results depict friction between the coexistence of the natural world and the fabricated ones—both beautiful and reverent.

Bull paintings-new series

Idea

The frequent motifs in your work are sharks and bulls. Can you tell us what bull paintings represent to you?

For me, the bull is a symbol that can be interpreted in different ways.
In some, they are parts of a forgotten code that humanity exchanges for enjoyment and easy life. On the other, quiet water which hides a secret below the surface consists of elements of a big puzzle or a vision of man’s inner world. In the end, bulls represent the simple nature that is struggling to survive. We can’t look at these scenes just from one side. The pose is similar, maybe a gesture on some, but everything else is different and unique.

Space for lines

Exhibition Space for lines

What inspires me are feelings connected to some events, people, and places with the amazing line between the past, present, and future as well as universal messages with ancient, but unchangeable facts. Exhibition “Space for lines” talks about that.
My work reflects crowded cities as well as Nature peacefulness and movement.

Join us Friday, October 9th at 8 pm for this one night only show! Do not miss out! Live music as always from the best local bands.
