Los Angeles – Acclaimed new artist Greg Auerbach presents a cinema inspired exhibit entitled “Hollywood Graffiti” at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood, opening August 14th. For this exhibit, Auerbach has created a series of mixed media works consisting of famous film icons spray painted over a collage of materials that relate to the icons interests, life and art. These materials include vintage newsprint, bullet shells and brick. Each piece is a massive 6 feet by 5 feet and the exhibit will span all three floors of Arclight Hollywood.
One of the pieces features the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchock, spray painted over vintage murder and mystery headlines on newsprint from as far back as the 1800’s through the 1960’s. Other pieces of “Hollywood Graffiti” feature Woody Allen, Audrey Hepburn, Charlie Chaplin and John Wayne, to name a few.
“The purpose of this series is to honor cinema by way of some of the actors and directors that contributed to making the movies I love… and have helped to make films that will forever stand testament to the greatness of storytelling and the power of the motion picture,” states Auerbach.
Auerbach is definitely the up and coming artists to watch. His works have been showcased during the 2013 Los Angeles Fashion Week and the Beverly Hills Art Show. His works have sold internationally and he is currently collaborating with clients in Dubai and London. He currently has plans to showcase his work at SCOPE for Art Basel.
The Hollywood Graffiti exhibit will be on display at the Arclight Cinemas Hollywood beginning August 14th. The Arclight Hollywood is located at 6360 W. Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. For more information on Hollywood Graffiti visit: www.HollywoodGraffiti.com.
