Bamboo Lane Gallery Presents:

Fly On The Wall by Paul Torres

Exhibition: July 8th � September 10th, 2011

Opening Reception: Friday, July 8th: 6:30pm � 9:30pm

Naturally gifted with a keen observation of everyday life, Paul Torres� takes aim at the cultural and social flavors underpinning society. Paul�s work is wondrous in its treatment of form and flesh, its low brow contemporary rococo style featuring delicious panoramas veering between magic realism and absurdist surrealism. It is an eyes wide open exploration of the universal violent human nature imbued with a good measure of forgiving earnestness. His work employs the broad strokes of an old master with the subtle undertones of modern influences, using oil, mixed media, acrylic, and dry and wet inks on both canvas and panel. Born in Chile and immigrating to the United States as a teenager, Paul was heavily influenced by Hollywood, watching in equal measure any number of American Westerns and horror flicks. He attended Otis Parsons and is an Art Center graduate and currently lives in Alhambra, California with his beloved girlfriend Clara.

Coming to the United States for a one year stay at the age of 9, Paul fell in love with the art culture here. I went to San Ignacio Jesuits School, my parents who I love dearly encouraged me to be an artist, they told all their friends that I am great. My father was an architect, and my mother is a renowed concert pianist. After immigrating to the United States permanently with a Immigrant Visa, at age 18, Paul served in the US Army, became an American citizen at 21, attended Otis Parsons Art Institute for 2 years, and then in 1998 he received his Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration/Fine Art from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He has had the privilege to study with very prominent and leading artists such as Daniel Greene, Albert Handell, Norwegian artist Jan Saether at Bruchion School in Los Angeles, and also Joseph Mendez at the Businessman�s Art Institute in Los Angeles. He also worked for several years in the animation and movie industry while continuing to paint for gallery shows and private collections, worked for DIC entertainment, and other Movie and Animation Studios, as a Character and Background Designer, helped make The Ghostbusters Show for TV Number 1, also has worked for "Cool World", Ralph Bakshi productions, "Scrooged" and other movies, and exhibiting paintings in galleries and museums at the same time.

Bamboo Lane Gallery Presents:

The Sweet Aroma of Earth
A Selection of Gouache Landscape Paintings by Xingtong Jia

Exhibition: April 23 � June 3, 2011

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 23rd: 6pm � 9pm

Special Showing: Sunday, April 24th: 10am - 6pm in conjunction with Art Weekend LA

Xingtong Jia's heart has always been embreaced by the mist of his homeland in Western Sichuan. As the stream flows by in a soft melody, a farm girl draws water and disappears into the depth of the mabmboo forest. Moisture clings to her clothing while a light breeze slowly dissipates the fog to reveal the elegant pavilions and divine hills of the holy mountain called Emei. The sweet aroma of earth beckons you... to leave the big cities ruled by wealth and power and to journey to a simpler time and place found only in memories from long ago.

2011 Year of Rabbit Celebration
Features Traditional Chinese New Year Paintings from Mianzhu

Exhibition & Sale: February 5 � March 5, 2011

Special Opening Event: Saturday, February 5th: 11am � 7pm; Sunday: 11am � 6pm in conjunction with the Chinatown New Year Festivities at Central and West Plaza

New Year paintings are a unique art form in Chinese folk culture, and their creation is one of the most important Chinese traditions. They are primarily displayed during the Chinese New Year festivities as a symbol of New Year�s greetings. New Year paintings first appeared around the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), featuring fierce-looking gods believed able to protect the residents by driving away bad spirits. Traditional printing methods of New Year paintings include traditional Chinese painting as well as woodblock, offset printing, and watercolor painting.

Mianzhu is located on the northwestern border of the Sichuan Basin, the home of bamboo forests and pandas. The city is named after the most famous bamboo species in the area, called soft bamboo, or mianzhu in Chinese. It is an ideal material for paper-making. Also known as �Art Village,� Mianzhu is famous for the murals that adorn many of its buildings and walls with walls with characters from Chinese mythology, landscapes, flowers, birds, and scenes from daily village life.

We hope you will come by and enjoy viewing them, or as Chinese people like to say, �invite� them to your home and display them on your doors or walls to protect your families and bring you good luck for 2011, the Year of the Rabbit.

Press Release:


Event: Art opening and reception for Chinese artist, Zhonggui Shi, who will be flying in to Los Angeles and will personally attend.
Date: Saturday, September 11, 2010
Time: 6 to 10 P.M.
Location: Bamboo Lane Gallery, 410 Bamboo Lane, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Mr. Shi paints Tibetan landscapes in the traditional Chinese manner of ink and wash painting on rice paper, but with extremely vivid colors and in a somewhat abstract style. Animals of the highland plains such as Yaks are silhouetted against the vibrant colors of dawn and dusk and highlight the scale of the landscape throughout the four seasons and migratory birds populate the lower marshlands and give voice to the endless silence of the horizons.  The paintings capture a sense of both the freedom and tranquility and the vastness of isolation that is the timelessness of Tibet.  More than 20 pieces will be displayed and a total of 44 are available for sale.

Zhonggui Shi was born in the Sichuan province of China and is a highly acclaimed artist who is well known both in China and abroad, where he has won numerous awards. In 1995, he was invited by the Japanese government to Tokyo, where he was received by the Japanese Deputy Prime Minister and was featured in a one-man exhibition at Ginza Art Gallery. He has also exhibited in Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, and France, where in 2000 he was awarded the title of “Academician” by Academy of Arts-Sciences-Lettres of France, and won the “Grande Medaille de Vermeil,” the first time the title was awarded by the Academy to an artist of Chinese citizenship since its founding in 1915. His works command high prices in China and he has been honored by the Chinese government through the release of a series of postage stamps bearing his image and recognizing his unique contribution to art.

The exhibition of the Zhonggui Shi’s paintings will be on view at the gallery from September 11 to October 31, 2010. Call (626) 675-1508 for further information.
