On June 16th, Patrick Martinez will be opening his latest solo show at the Known Gallery entitled Lovely Day. For this new body of work, the LA-based artist who initially made his name with his neon works that play on hip-hop themes will be focusing on two ideas. One will be the the juxtaposition of the beauty seen in the City of Angels with the evil things that happen there with the other being an exploration of the male psyche. Along with his sculptural work and paintings, Martinez will also place in the showspace two vending machines loaded with custom sculpted toys in plastic capsules cast in various materials. He will be exhibiting alongside Aaron De La Cruz.
