Opening Night: 2nd Annual Coaster Show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery

by CaroPosted on

Last Friday night, La Luz de Jesus gallery in Hollywood dotted their walls with over 1,000 coasters customized by international artists. Just as many came out in attendance and were still talking about the show days later. You can spend a good hour skimming through everything and still not see it all.  Don’t let the name fool you- these tiny pieces of artwork can hardly be called coasters. Too many to name, but stand outs shown below include decorative masked girls by Jel Ena, soft pet portraits by Renee French, a quirky salad-inspired series by So Youn Lee, Christine Wu (featured here), Stephanie Inagaki (here), Nathan Ota, Dan Quintana, Karen Hsiao, Gabe Larson, and Yumiko Kayukawa. There’s even a range of imaginary animal busts, a Yoda, and a My Little Pony coming out of a donut. La Luz de Jesus is a place where people can go and find their next favorite artist and this show in particular has a lot to offer. In a sea of hundreds of tiny pieces, you might expect some to be hit or miss. 2nd Annual Coaster Show is just as impressive in each artist’s creative execution as it is in size. To see every single coaster, you can go to La Luz’s website or check out the show until September 28th.
