Preview: Nathan Ota and Bob Dob at La Luz de Jesus

This Friday, La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles will open two solo shows by Bob Dob (HF Vol. 10) and Nathan Ota. Both artists with a knack for blending humor and whimsy with emotional complexity, Dob and Ota will unveil new series that explore new conceptual and aesthetic realms. For "Mouseketeer Army," Dob invented an elaborate backstory of the uprising of the Yippies, a radical organization determined to destroy Disneyland. The result is a subtle satire that eerily reflects current events through a cartoonish lens. Nathan Ota's show, "Pop! Goes the Weasel" represents an aesthetic departure for the artist, who has developed a new series of dynamic, colorful works after extensive collaborations with his childhood friend and renowned graffiti artist, RISK. Take a look at some images from the shows courtesy of La Luz de Jesus.
