Juxtapoz // Saturday, April 05, 2008
Ever wonder about the faces behind artwork we have come to know, appreciate, and cherish? A favorite piece of art can become like a family member or good friend- always near, providing beauty, clarity, and pleasure when one most needs it. Well, here comes an exhibit dedicated to the faces behind the artwork that have helped shape the way we view the world.
The first of its kind, Heroes & Villains is an incredible photography show exhibiting a cross-section of 83 well-known artistic personalities. A special two-day exhibition of new works by Los Angeles photographers Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho, Heroes & Villains represents a three-year long project, featuring intimate portraits of the most notable emerging and established figures in the Pop Surrealist, Graffiti and Alt-Comic Book worlds.
Open to the public, Heroes & Villains will only be on display at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles Tuesday, April 22nd and Wednesday, April 23rd. After its LA debut, Heroes & Villains will move on to San Francisco and other cities across the nation, with a book project in development as well as a new chapter of portraits to come!
