happened into the Louis de Jesus gallery on La Cienega and was gobsmacked, yeah i said it, GOBSMACKED by the Federico Solmi video Chinese Democracy and the Last Day on Earth.

above is a prelude to singular animation voice and just a few of the characters involved in the full length piece. Solmi is an Italian artist living in New York, a self taught artist that is also a recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship in 2009. The accompanying sculptures, paintings and mixed media pieces seemed to all fit together like some larger studio campaign. seek this show out.
