Athenessa Gallery is very pleased to present “Drawer’s Legacy" a solo exhibition of paramount importance devoted to the work of the eminent French artist Artiste Ouvrier (AO).

 

Opening on March 19th the exhibition will encompass two decades of the artist’s continuing elevation of stencil art, the most comprehensive exhibition given to the date of AO's body of work.

 

“Drawer’s Legacy” in the form of over 150 artworks painted on recycled drawers and presented in reverse chronological order, opens the full scope of AO's singular style and allows the viewer to share the transformative journey with AO from the original series “Fond de Tiroirs" first exhibited in Paris in 2002, all the way to his current state in Los Angeles, CA.

The birth of a new art gallery in Los Angeles

ATHENESSA LA - THE BIRTH OF A NEW ART GALLERY IN LA BREA, LOS ANGELES.

Some will tell me that these are very strange times to open a new business, especially an art gallery while galleries are trying to survive all over the world, others that I am totally insane, but I am very optimistic and hopeful that things will get better very soon.

In my opinion there is no better time to acknowledge the human need of art in these difficult moments. 

Even though the virus has been pretty effective in shutting things down around us, the arts can ground us in a way that nothing else can.

Art connects us meaningfully even when we are apart.

“If you think artists are useless, try to spend your quarantine without music, books, poems, movies and paintings ...” The quote went viral on social networks for the last few weeks, but could you really imagine a world without art? I cannot.

Art & Artists Are Essential; art making is also an act of hope during these uncertain times and that is why we want to keep supporting artists by showing the outstanding work of the many talented ones we represent at the gallery.

Our schedule is still up in the air as you can imagine, but we will come back soon with some news and an opening date, probably set for the summer 2020.

We are looking forward to welcome you all; Angelenos, savvy or new collectors, art amateurs and artists, for a drink surrounded by beautiful art!
