Plastic Jesus: The Art of Crime
Oct. 27th, 2016 - Jan. 10th, 2017
Opening Reception Nov. 12th at 8pm
Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles based street artist that specializes in bold stencil and installation work, inspired by world news events, society, the urban environment, culture and politics.
His critically acclaimed work combines humor, irony, criticism and unique opinion to create art that engages on many levels.
Often questioning the norms in society Plastic Jesus confronts our compliance of culture and current affairs. The artist uses scale and contradiction as a means to highlight issues and opinions that often go unquestioned.
The aesthetic appeal of his work combined with the engagement produces an addictive mix that challenges our acceptance.
Plastic Jesus is not about revolution, he is not a anarchist but would like to see some changes around the place. His work is more about shining a small light into some of those dark corners of society.
His work has been featured by The BBC, CNN, abc News, Huffington Post, Gizmodo, Buzzfeed, The Sun, The Daily Mirror, LA Times, LA Weekly, The Daily Mail, MSNBC, The Daily Telegraph, Complex art and Design, Time, Us Weekly, USA Today, and many more.
Prior to his commitment to produce provocative street art Plastic Jesus has worked for over two decades as a photographer.
