LA Art Show 2012

This past weekend, Hi-Fructose took a trip down to Los Angeles to check out the 2012 art fairs (see our coverage of the Affordable Art Fair here.) The city's largest fair, the LA Art Show, opened with a bang on Wednesday night, packed with celebrities (as to be expected in Los Angeles) for a star studded night of fine and contemporary art. Of course, we were in attendance to check out the art, of which there was plenty. Though the fair lacked any real street art presence (odd considering the successes of the recent MOCA show), there were still some gems scattered throughout the fair which presented a refreshing blend of fine, contemporary, classic, Chinese and print works. Get a look at some of the pieces that caught our eye after the jump.
