We are proud to announce a solo exhibition with multi-disciplinary artist Danny Sangra titled ‘Yeah Sure, Real Mature’ at the Alldayeveryday space in Los Angeles, California. Danny Sangra – A polymath of creativity. Sangra has an iconoclastic approach with a do-it-yourself attitude. Sangra is a multi-disciplinary artist who works across platforms including illustration, photography, writing and film.
Sangra’s artwork is recognizable through its use of appropriated mass media collaged together. Often drawing over vintage porn magazine images, his pieces are populated with indiscreet streams of consciousness and commentary.
“I’ve been drawing on magazines longer than I’ve been drawing on blank sheets of paper. Growing up in my parents hair salons, I was often bored. To fight my boredom I would draw on the hair and beauty magazines. This pretty much got me into trouble every weekend. Customers would flick through the pages to find my biro drawn eye patch over a models face or discover my warped version of Sonic the Hedgehog, scrawled over a cigarette ad”.
This collection of work is from a 4 year period, gathered from his travels. He continues to find vintage magazines that offer new images for him to manipulate and re-contextualize.
