Eric Joyner’s (Juxtapoz #93) recent exhibit opening of Artificial Enlightenment at Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery debuted a whole new series of his award-winning imagery of robots and donuts.

His second solo show at the Gallery reveals the grittier side of robot life: mysterious donut factories, runaway steam trains and vintage motorcycles. Featuring twenty two oil-on-panel works, Artificial Enlightenment unveils never-before-seen metal humanoids from Joyner’s growing repertoire of characters.

The reception included the release and signing of his new book, Robots & Donuts: The Art of Eric Joyner, published by Dark Horse. Needless to say, the night was a smashing success, so make sure to take a look at opening photos below:
