A Peek At Brendan Lott At TENOVERSIX

A Peek At Brendan Lott At TENOVERSIX 1

There are lots of cool stores in Los Angeles, sure, but few are consistently stellar again and again and again. Melrose’s TENOVERSIX has done an excellent job of rising to the challenge of doing a good job of sharing interesting products and keeping their store looking great. They always have something interesting going on over there, too. Most recently? They’re having a little art show featuring Brendan Lott‘s culture smashing collages. The show is curated by Yaoska Davila and, although we haven’t gotten to visit the showing ourselves, she sent us a note with photos of the show. You’re going to want to stop by and see it!

Bag Brilliance From Mansur Gavriel

Bag Brilliance From Mansur Gavriel 1

His show Epicenter, currently on view at PDC based See Line Gallery, is an examination of desert themes and dives into everything from burning bushes to the strange ecology of the Salton Sea.
