On Saturday I got to attend the “I Shoot People” art exhibit held in
The evening was warm so I decided to wear a black wiggle dress with a gold clasp belt cinched at the waist and a black sheer head scarf.
I met up with the talented Nicole from NicCoCo Creations who had a beautiful display of her most current designs. I personally fell in love with her "Le Deja Blue" and "The Orchid Heart" flowers.
I got to meet artist "DeadMundo" who's talent for "portraits in stencil/street art form" had me falling in love. His 'Johnny Cash' on canvas made my heart sing. "DeadMundo" explained that the exhibit focused on "photography portraits- the perfect place for photographers to come together and meet other photographers to network." A reason, I wanted to witness the talent myself.
One of the great projects serving the art world is "Las Fotos Project- A non-profit community based photography program with a mission to bring positive change for young Latinas facing adversity between the ages of 11-17 in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods throughout SoCal and several satellite locations in the United States and Latin America."
I came across one artists work that I thought was stunning and unique (below). A "last minute school project" for Chris Troncoza came out to be a piece of art (see what I did there). I met the lovely Ms. "Swiggly" who not only contributed to a portrait, but also attended in support. She rocked high waisted shorts with a beige crop top- 'Style Me Classic' approved.
The evening was a mixture of friendly people and sweaty armpits (unfortunately there was a lack of A/C in the room) but overall the FREE event was filled with fresh young talent that got me 3 colorful creative prints from artist "Sketch".
