Thinkspace Projects rings in the holidays with an exciting lineup of December shows, fun-filled opening night, and a toy drive. With their beautiful expanded space filled with art, they are thrilled to celebrate this milestone year.
Gallery I: Ben Tolman’s Unmode. Carefully detailed, architecture based drawings, examining Tolman’s creative process; a study of black and white two-dimensional shapes explore the possibilities of creativity.
Gallery II: Hanna Lee Joshi’s What is it You Seek? Vibrant faceless figurative works evoke an ethereal goddess, luminous and full of wonder and yet also deeply human. Touching on unfulfilled desire and uncertainty, Joshi delves into the conscious and unconscious drives that shape our behavior and motivations.
Gallery III: Nika Mtwana’s Protagonist. This new collection from the South African artist was created to elevate African identity. His paintings explore AfroFuturism, and the resulting work is some of the most unique and instantly recognizable coming out of South Africa at the moment.
Gallery IV: works of both Carl Cashman and Oscar Joyo Hybrid. Cashman’s vibrant neon colored works are best described as a genre he has coined “neometry,” or neon geometry. Joyo’s work is also deeply rooted in color exploration, due in part to his chromesthesia (the ability to see colors when hearing sounds).
All four incredible shows kick off with an opening and holiday party featuring DJs Venice Beats, an open bar, free drinks from Liquid Death, Live Painting from Brek as part of ‘Courtyard Sessions’ curated by GoopMassta, Tamales from The Roll ’N Bun, a Vape bar from Timeless, and Video Projections from Digital Debris. In the holiday spirit, the THINKSPACE TOY DRIVE will be happening all evening! Bring a new wrapped toy and Thinkspace will be giving out books, sticker / button packs and more to all that bring by a toy for a child in need. All toys will be donated to the local Salvation Army Community Corps and then be distributed to underserved children in Southern California, in tandem with Toys for Tots. For those who need to do a bit of their own shopping, GoopMassta will be curating a small artist mart perfect for last minute gift purchases and treating one’s self.
