George Hobbs is a lover AND a fighter… His LOVE of art, photography, and film brought Hobbs to Los Angeles over thirty years ago. He moved to Venice Beach and pursued a career in filmmaking, where he honed his craft of telling stories with pictures. In 2016 Hobbs decided to FIGHT. Dismayed by the division surrounding him, he started his Stick Figure Wisdom series to express complex concepts with simple symbols, thus transcending language. Hobbs’ modern-primitive style combines the appeal of cartoons with wit and humor. He explores themes of love, religion, politics, relationships, and what it means to be human, all while loving the creative process and fighting against those who would try to destroy it. George Hobbs' photographs and sculptures show the same clever perspective of our tenuous connection to that which sustains us.

BEAUTY IS PAIN

SOLO EXHIBITION

July 7 - July 29, 2018

 

VIP PREVIEW

WHERE: Hollywood  |  1546 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028
WHEN: Saturday, June 2, 2018  |  8pm - Midnight

 

Fresh and bright colors explode onto contemporary, clean compositions of bodies with objects of desire transforming into exquisite palettes for the mind to get lost in and wander. And in a city of dreamers, ACE of LA is selling the dream.

Born 1987 in Mexico City, ACE of LA had a nomadic upbringing, moving back and forth between Mexico and the United States many times during his early childhood. Although a transitory period of countless moves, it was through this experience that allowed him to mold his mind into transporting him to self realized places of peace, bliss, and contemplation.

In the physicality though, ACE of LA kept being drawn to the history and cultural intricacies of Mexico and how they compared to the United States, giving rise to nuances in which he could formulate a framework of relations. These connections would in turn be the catalyst behind his boundless ideas, drawing inspiration from eclectic artists such as David LaChapelle, Shepard Fairey, and even Diego Rivera, yet not as inherently political.

And even if political undertones do arise in ACE of LA’s art from time to time, success in the works lies on the subtlety of the message. The aesthetic feel and emotion ravaging from within the images onto the surface is of utmost importance as it is through these experiential moments that will truly motivate and make a lasting impact.
