—When the viewer sees Brayden’s work, they are first taken in by the bright colors and the fun story lines that he creates with the greater image. And it is only when you look closer at the fragmentations and reassembly of fine details of thousands of images Brayden uses to create his paintings that you will be able to finally understand the essence of the story within the larger context of the painting.
“ACCA Gallery’s Director Carlos Benitez sees Brayden Bugazzi works like an encyclopedia of modern and contemporary great masters known for colour, drastmanship, and print making . His works are carefully plan like a Classical Realistic Painter and like Vincent van Gogh’s Quinces, lemons, pears and grapes, he painted the frame yellow and ochre, with brush strokes that bear some resemblance to Japanese characters. Brayden knows the importance between the painting and it’s sorroundings so he chooses the wood, moulding style and paints his frames to bear resemblance of the art itself.”

Beverly Hills: Known around the world as one of the best renowned prestigious location with art galleries like the Gagosian and landmarks like Rodeo Drive!
No stranger to the exclusive, Beverly Hills will serve as the debut location of Treasure the Erotic, a unique and lavish exhibition by Australian jewelry artist Colin Burn. Described as a laud to pleasure, valuing the intimate and honoring the erotic, the exhibition has more than forty limited edition artworks on display. The exhibition highlights include a luxury sculpture work titled “The Pearl Royale” – a platinum and diamond set vibrator valued at a cool $1.8 million dollars – and a unique chessboard set made of crystal sculptures valued at an opulent $4 million dollars and will be featured alongside the erotic photography of renowned Australian photographer Aaron McPolin.
The exhibition will also serve as the launch of the recently relocated ACCA Gallery. Originally conceived in Hollywood, ACCA Gallery comes to Beverly Hills bringing its vision of contemporary fine art and mission of providing creative experiences and educational initiatives of classes and workshop practices covering the many facets of the art world for personal and financial advancement to residents and visitors of Beverly Hills.
ACCA Gallery anchors on the second floor of the Global Business Centers building at 468 N. Camden Drive to create a market and exhibition space in Beverly Hills. While not necessarily a new placement for an exhibition space (think New York City’s Chelsea gallery neighborhood to Miami South Beach’s Art Week hotel fairs to Los Angeles’ eclectic exhibition spaces from movie studio lots and airplane hangars), ACCA Gallery will utilize the Global Business Center’s open common area spaces for its revolving contemporary program for all to enjoy, one floor at a time. And by understanding ACCA Gallery’s positioning in the central region of Beverly Hills, known around the world as one of the best renowned prestigious art galleries like the Gagosian, landmarks like Rodeo Drive plans for expanding its exhibition space footprint with regular public pop-up experiences to make contemporary art more accessible to the residents and visitors of Beverly Hills
Treasure the Erotic by Colin Burn and Aaron McPolin is a lavish month long exhibition running August 3rd – 31st, 2019, with a V.I.P. premier night on Saturday, August 3rd, from 7pm – 10pm.
