Zero to Sixty

-By Dan dos Santos

If you're one of our West Coast readers, this opening may be of interest to you:


“Zero To Sixty” marks the fifth anniversary of Corey Helford Gallery opening its doors in Culver City, California, and on Friday, July 1 the gallery will salute the occasion with its most exciting group exhibition of the year.

For the momentous event, more than fifty artists from around the globe were invited to create a special piece for the anniversary show. The exhibition will include new works by celebrated artists who have shown with the gallery since its inception: Natalia Fabia, Sylvia Ji, Buff Monster, Kukula, Lola, Korin Faught, Brandi Milne, Eric Joyner, and David Stoupakis.

“Zero to Sixty is a show of what’s best at Corey Helford Gallery and what’s to come — new works from the artists who’ve shown with the gallery from the beginning and a host of works from artists we just love, like Joe Sorren, Todd Schorr, Greg Simkins, Kent Williams, Nick Walker, Sas and Colin Christian, and also some artists who have never shown with us before, like Meggs and Kazuki Takamatsu,” explains gallery owners Jan and Bruce Helford.

Open to the public, the reception for “Zero To Sixty” will take place on Friday, July 1 from 7 to 10pm.


Aside from showcasing the the works of industry veterans like Kent Williams and Anita Kunz, The Corey Helford Gallery also boasts a wonderful roster of young up-and-comers who are sure to make their mark on the industry as well. Two of my favorites of late have been Mia Araujo (seen above) and Billy Norrby (seen below). Both of these pieces will be included in tomorrow's show. More to come on these two fine artists soon.

  1. I'd love to see these in person! Such a juicy, chromatic change from the dead color palettes I know...

  2. I am proud to say I was the hand model for Mia's IMC piece. Her art is pretty cool.
