Julian Callos’ ‘The End’

La fin du monde, the end of the world, takes shape in most cultures, envisioned by prophets, passed down in myths, carefully packaged by religion. It's a concept that is hard to escape as everything does end eventually, and though foreboding as it may be, is also an idea that captures the imagination. Los Angeles-based artist Julian Callos tackles the theme in his latest solo show, 'The End,' now on view at WWA Gallery in Culver City. From the traditionally Biblical "Locust Harbringers" and "Rapture" to the more realistic "Fallout," Callos' vision of the future is simultaneously dark and depressing as it is colorful and playful. The show is on view until October 8th, check it out before it's too late.
