Currently on view at Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach, CA, “6 x 6: Group Show” is a veritable smorgasbord of emerging talent. Coinciding with the gallery’s 6th anniversary, the exhibition features over 100 artists — many of whom are brand new to the New Contemporary gallery scene — and gives a sampling of their different styles in a bite-sized format. Some of the names on the roster will be familiar to our readers, such as Ryan de la Hoz with his black-and-white collages, JoKa with his pointillistic tooth pick paintings and Ki Sung Koh, a purveyor of surreal animal portraits. With the size of the work as the common denominator, the show varies greatly in style. Take a look at some highlights from “6 x 6” below and catch the exhibition at Phone Booth through April 30.
