Famed painter Robert Williams (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) was riding a California wave, while collaborator, Fausto Vitello, was ripping with his Thrasher Magazine success, and with some key […]
Later this month, November 23rd to be exact, the Corey Helford Gallery will be hosting a new solo show from SHAG (interviewed). The fresh paintings play on the phrase Pink Elephants, first coined by Jack London in 1913 to describe the hallucinations experienced from excessive alcohol consumption.
