The massive group show Laluzapalooza has returned at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. With more than 160 works from more than 60 artists, this show says it offers “the most exclusive selection of tastefully, jam-packed, salon-style exhibited works in Post-Pop.” Jorge Dos Diablos, Dave Lebow, D.W. Marino, VegA, and Win Wallace are among the names in the line-up.

The 31st annual group show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery, titled Laluzapalooza 2017, brings 130 pieces from 64 artists into the space. There’s no theme to the enormous salon-style show, just a broad Post-Pop experience. The gallery says it sorted through thousands of submissions from “commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, street taggers, animators, and working gallery artists” to get to the final line-up.
