During the summer, NoHo Gallery LA exhibited a series of photographs highlighting past NoHo Arts District Festivals. I was impressed by the number of people frequenting the gallery who appreciated this retrospective and expressed strong desires to see a revival of the festivals. The festivals did so much to benefit the NoHo theatres, galleries and small businesses,in general. Fortunately, the Experience NoHo Arts Festival coming up this November 12th is a much needed boost to the NoHo community.
Paul Torres is the featured artist at NoHo Gallery LA's "Latin Fusion" exhibit September 24-November 20 here in the NoHo Arts District.
Naturally gifted with a keen observation of everyday life and the cultural, social, political and religious landscape in the world we live, Paul Torres' art embodies a rich imagination and is laced with social commentary and a soulful interpretation of everyday life. Paul was born in Chile. His interest in art began at age three after being introduced to comic books. He developed a love for comic books and started drawing soon after. His father then hired a private art tutor for him. By the age seven he was already enrolled in an art correspondence school. Early on, Paul also became influenced by Hollywood films and mostly enjoys horror films and Westerns.
At the art reception of NoHo Gallery LA’s Feminine Mystique, a mysterious event happened this past Saturday night when the festive atmosphere suddenly died down as a group of art enthusiasts gathered around a certain painting. The silence that ensued was captivating. Someone’s finger pointed at the carved-out sound hole of a guitar depicted in that painting. Contained therein was a haunting inscription - the number “27.” The musician playing the guitar is Kurt Cobain. Someone whispered “Amy Winehouse.” The group looked at each other eerily, and understood in that moment of silence, the convergence of past and present. Earlier that very same day, Amy Winehouse had unfortunately died, joining the infamous 27 Club. The name of the painting is: “Not Gone.”
