We figured it would be slightly fitting on the first day of October to have some nature, almost Autumn-in-LA art pieces to share. Devin Tsuno is an artist and LA native who is currently working within these mixed media pieces that are a combination of paint, acrylic, and handmade paper. They represent semi-tropical nature in subdued bright colors and hint toward a city like Los Angeles’ influence on its natural surrounding.
Friday Poketo held their first big, artsy, fun in-store event. If you remember, it was a quick pop-up shop for The Bold Italic that went by the name Bold Rush. Friday was the “opening party” which was followed by a “closing party” the next night. We only made it to the opening event and, as you can see, it was the same fun as usual in the Arts District.
Chris Johanson and Johanna Jackson live an artistic lifestyle. They are careful and creative in everything that they do, their artistry extending from canvases and gallery walls into how they live and what surrounds them. Visiting their Silver Lake home is like entering into an ideological sanctuary that forms when you collide mixed media art, high end craft, locavore culture, and a way of living: that is Chris and Johanna’s artistic lifestyle.

As we started the day with an actor/artist type, here is another that we’ve been wanting to share for a while: Katie Eisenberg. Eisenberg is an “up and coming” actor type and doesn’t dabble in visual arts. She instead is one of those performers whose work often visits more abstract performance and writing styles, relatable fields to the world she is in but not quite “the world she is in.” One project–Here Is A Man–stood out as a writing and gender performance exercise, where Eisenberg slips into the guise of a man.
