Closes on Halloween.
The Lowbrow Tarot Project showcases 23 amazing artists who have used their creative genius and unique styles to take on both sides of the 22 Major Arcana cards to create 23 new works of art in the rugged glow of the lowbrow art movement.
The pedigree of this exhibition is such that we've been approached by several prominent international museums wanting to show it,
but this exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery will be the ONLY public display of these works. With a published volume and corresponding Tarot deck on the way, we knew that the patrons who've purchased these works of art wouldn't want to wait several months to take them home -and they are selling fast.
The artists: Daniel Martin Diaz, Carrie Ann Baade, Christopher Ulrich, Edith Lebeau, Cate Rangel,Kris Kuksi, Chris Mars, Christopher Umana, C.C. Askew, Brian M. Viveros, Claudia Drake, Heather Watts, Molly Crabapple, David Stoupakis, Laurie Lipton, Patrick "Star27" ; Deignan, Chet Zar, Jessica Joslin, Danni Shinya Luo, Jennybird Alcantara, Angie Mason, Scott G. Brooks, and curator Aunia Kahn.

"Trinity" collaboration piece by James and Chet Zar
beinArt International Surreal Art Collective Group Exhibition "Metamorphosis"@ Copro Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave , Unit T5, Santa Monica , CA 90404
Opening Reception, Saturday, June 5 - 8:00 – 11:30 p.m.
Dates: Exhibit runs; June 5 – June 26, 2010
The beinArt International Surreal Art Collective was formed in 2006 to increase public awareness and appreciation of contemporary Surreal, Pop-Surrealist, Fantastic and Visionary Art. Each individual artist's contribution increases the movements credibility in the contemporary art world.
"Metamorphosis" will present the work of over 50 international artists (TBA), many who have never shown their work in California or the USA, along with a number of well known artists who have.
Each artist has been chosen for their ability to express themselves imaginatively with exceptional technique and un compromised individuality. The works will cover many themes that are central to the human experience portrayed with a surreal, dreamlike and often nightmarish aesthetic.
"Metamorphosis" will be testimony to a huge international movement of figurative artists who have resisted current trends in the art world and remained true to their artistic vision.
The beinArt International Surreal Art Collective was founded by Jon Beinart. Jon grew up in Albury-Wodonga, on the border of New South Wales and Victoria, before moving to Melbourne where he established The beinArt Underground Australian Art Collective (2003), later to become The beinArt International Surreal Art Collective (2006). Jon occupies the role of Artistic Director and manager of the publishing venture beinArt Publishing. He is also a practising artist whose work can be seen in the beinArt.org Gallery.
The recent publication of 'Metamorphosis 2' and the commercial venture beinArt Publishing has allowed its founder to sustain the social and philanthropic mission of the non-profit collective and provide a new avenue through print publication to promote emerging artists and strengthen the surreal and visionary art movement. This will be Jon's first curated group art exhibition which will feature many of the artists from his books 'Metamorphosis 1' and 'Metamorphosis 2' as well as many of the newly discovered talents featured on the web-site.
