A few weeks back, while the Juxtapoz team was in Los Angeles for the LA Art Book Fair, we stopped by the opening of Victor Castillo's newest work, "Pure Pleasure," along with Mauricio Garrido and Claudia Pena at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Castillo once again was in top form, not only with a few paintings in the front of the gallery, but his dynamic black and white serigraph pieces were showstoppers unto themselves, along with a beautiful mural in the back of the gallery.
Garrido had 3 fantastic collage pieces that could take you over an hour just to follow each pieces' composition and historical references. Pena also had some really nice oil paintings with depth and precision.
