BLACK APPLE GALLERY PRESENTS CONTRABAND 2: A NIGHT OF EXTRAORDINARY URBAN STREET ART AT RIVIERA 31

Riviera 31 Bar & Lounge (Sofitel Hotel)

8555 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, 90048

7:00pm to 12:00am

Black Apple Gallery’s co-directors, Eric Perlman and Jared Rothman are Street Art fans and collectors in Los Angeles with diverse professional backgrounds in arts and entertainment. Together, Perlman and Rothman strive to bring these notorious, many faceless, international, urban artists to the forefront of art culture in L.A. and nationwide.

The L.A. public can expect to see works from Pøbel, a pseudonymous name meaning Hooligan. The Norway-based artist was commissioned to decorate the country’s major railway stations, including its Capital of Oslo, yet the artist’s name and age have never been made public.

One of the more notable artists to be featured, and the only U.S. born Los Angeles-based artist in Black Apple Gallery’s “Contraband 2”, is Seizer One, who achieved stardom in the art world after appearing in the Oscar-nominated film “Exit Through the Gift Shop” directed by Banksy. While Seizer One typically only sells to private collectors, Black Apple Gallery will be the first to showcase his artworks in public, in Los Angeles, on August 8th.

Other artists include Sandra Chevrier from Canada, who premiered in Los Angeles at Black Apple Gallery’s Contraband debut in 2013. Making a name for herself in Montreal, this young and self-taught urban illustrator is a rising star, wildly popular in Europe, and most recently put her name on the graffiti map with her innovative “Cage” series of artistically masked and adorned women.

The show will also feature Ernest Zacharevic, a rising star of Lithuania’s urban art scene, whose pieces are refreshingly down-to-earth and engaging to the public. Always maintaining a sense of fun and playfulness in his craft, Zacharevic’s 3-D installations are whimsical and unsuspectingly eye-catching to all passersby. Black Apple Gallery is proud to debut Zacharevic and his spirited artistry to the US and Los Angeles.

June, 1940.  For the United States, war is on the horizon.  For Miranda Corbie, private investigator and erstwhile escort, there are debts to be paid and memories--long-suppressed and willfully forgotten--to be resurrected. Enter the U.S. State Department and the man who helped Miranda get her PI license. A man she owes. A man who asks her to track a chemistry professor here in San Francisco whom he suspects is a spy for the Nazis. Playing along may get Miranda a ticket to Blitz-bombed England and answers about her past...if she survives.  Through sordid back alleys and art gallery halls, from drag dress nightclubs to a Nazi costume ball, Miranda's journey into fear takes her on the famed City of San Francisco streamliner and to Reno, Nevada, the Biggest Little City in the World...where she finds herself framed for a murder she never anticipated. Forced to go underground, Miranda soldiers on alone, determined to find the truth about a murder, a Nazi spy, and her own troubling past.   But Miranda will have to learn the difference between reality and illusion, from despair to deceit and factual to fake, as she tries to get her life back...and navigates a City of Ghosts.  Miranda Corbie's back. Noir will never be the same.  And Kelli Stanley will once again mesmerize readers with the most thrilling novel yet in her award-winning series. (Minotaur Books)
