The Awesomist Tomorrow

Posted on September 4, 2008 Under Art

A Los Angeles Chinese antique store turned art exhibition space will play host to an ink drawing and sculpture show that conjures up memories of MC Escher’s layered drawings (if Escher used color and submarine themes). Kiel Johnson‘s solo show The Awesomist Tomorrow opens on Satuday, September 6, and will remain in POVevolving‘s Chung King Road space throughout September. The artist, who has collaborated on collections for designer Todd Oldham, has shown his wood and painted paper creations at myriad contemporary museums in L.A. and New York. Angelinos are in for some imaginative eye candy in Johnson’s cardboard radios and 3D survival vest. The show’s location is similarly multifaceted: when it’s not showing up-and-coming artists’ work, POVevolving also serves as a figure drawing class space and studio for yoga studio and archival printing. But of course.
