The incredibly talented Brazilian artist Stephan Doitschinoff, aka Calma, will be signing copies of his new book, Calma: The Art of Stephan Doitschinoff as well as screening Temporal, the short documentary film about Doitschinoff's work, this Saturday, February 28th from 6-7pm at Los Angeles' Scion Installation Gallery. Sweet.
We love Calma because he creates deep and varied paintings on anything from canvas to wall, paper to sculpture, all while exploring religion as a matter of socio-cultural issue. Creating such striking visual narratives is no easy feat, but Calma does so with a fluid and beautiful style (which compliments his choice of alias!)
The book signing and film screening will go down right before the opening reception for SÃO PAULO, the group show curated by Choque Cultural Gallery, featuring fellow Brazilian artists Carlos Dias, MZK, Ramon Martins, Silvana Mello, Speto, Titi Freak and Zezão.
Three events, one night? We’re there.
