Saatchi Art Presents From The Street

We’re thrilled to present From the Street, a new exhibition of pop and street art curated by Saatchi Art curators Katherine Henning and Jessica McQueen. On view in Saatchi Art’s brand new gallery space in Santa Monica, the exhibition presents recent work by 12 Los Angeles-based artists, including Isabelle Alford-Lago, Cody Bayne, Fabio Coruzzi, Owen Demers, Charlie Edmiston, Jonas Fisch, Anyes Galleani, Erick Laubach, Joseph Lee, Jules Muck, Kelly Puissegur, and Annie Terrazzo.

From the Street’ is an exhibition featuring 12 Los Angeles-based artists whose works collectively represent an exploration of the city—from its inhabitants to its architecture. Continuing the rich genres of street and Pop art, which have been a vibrant part of urban life in L.A. since the 1970s, the artists in the exhibition will be showing a range of works from portraiture and figurative to abstract and cityscapes. Many of the works possess a light and humorous tone, characterized by references to pop culture, and playful subjects such as donut-eating contests and gorillas getting their hair cut. Others delve into more serious subjects, exploring the cult of celebrity and the grittier side of the City of Angels.
