The LA ART SHOW. Historic. Modern. Contemporary. 2015 celebrated its 20th year for this momentous event boasting 120 galleries and representing 22 countries.

Andy Warhol once said that “Art is what you can get away with.” Clearly, he was on to something. With his controversial pop art, he explored the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement – and he got away with a lot. Even with his passing in 1987, he is still among the best selling American artists ever. And today, maybe even more so, he is everywhere in the art world.

His presence was certainly known at the LA ART SHOW, where a giant sculpture of both him and artist Salvador Dali where prominently displayed. Nearly 30 years after his passing he is still a star in the art world.

Art is fun. At least that seemed to be the prevailing theme (for me anyway). Hey, at least it is never boring. So, with that in mind, I’m sharing a few fun pics of some great art from our fun day at the LA ART SHOW. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did being there.
