About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life! It refers to a vital substance that nourishes, and inspires our soul day by day. A sort of vivid shadow that gives birth twice a year to a print magazine named PARIS, LA.

EXHIBITION: PARKER ITO AT CHATEAU SHATTO

Parker Ito’s show at Chateau Shatto, A Little Taste of Cheeto in the Night, is a fully-immersive, claustrophobic, phantasmagoric experience. The artist transformed a vast, multi-roomed warehouse behind the gallery with architectural interventions, punching holes in the walls and ceiling. Double-sided paintings hang from silvery chains and LED light strands, and the floors are haphazardly […]

EXHIBITION: BERNARD PIFFARETTI AT CHERRY & MARTIN

Bernard Piffaretti’s show at Cherry & Martin features a number of works in a signature style that the artist has used since the 1980s.
