SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 30, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — John Waguespack, is showcasing his new works at The McLoughlin Gallery in San Francisco December 8, 2011 through January 21, 2012. “Deconstructing Hollywood” is his second solo exhibition at The McLoughlin Gallery at 49 Geary Street in San Francisco.
Waguespack emerged onto the San Francisco art scene in 2005 fusing different mediums, oil, acrylic, ink, and industrial design, providing a fresh perspective to his figurative, abstract striped images inspired from current events and pop culture.
“This collection is a result of my time spent in Hollywood this summer. This body of new work encompasses deconstructing Hollywood icons to depicting the Los Angeles landscape. End result – ecstasy,” said John Waguespack.
The opening reception for the artist will take place on Thursday December 8, 5:30-7:30 p.m. and the exhibition will remain on display until January 21, 2011.
“John is an innovator giving pop-art a fresh attitude by blending different mediums and techniques into his work. He is among the 21st Century artists who are strongly influenced by social media and the demands of young collectors to create art they can relate to. It is an exciting, evocative time,” states Joan McLoughlin, Gallerist, The McLoughlin Gallery.
