Ethos Gallery and Jarritos Pop Up Present Plastic Jesus Solo Show

Plastic Jesus is preparing for his first ever solo show at the Jarritos Pop Up Gallery on May 30th.  Offering his unique perspective on current events in both originals and prints, this first time look at his entire body of work should not be missed.

The Jarritos Pop Up Gallery is located at 7020 Melrose Avenue, LA CA 90036

About the Artist:

Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles based street artist that specialises in bold stencil and installation work, inspired by world news events, society, the urban environment, culture, politics, and the amazing creativity of fellow artists.
His work combines humour, criticism and  unique opinion to create art that engages on many levels.
In early 2013 one of his pieces “No more heroes” featuring disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong connect to an IV drip caught the world’s attention and was featured by many media organisations including CNN, the BBC, The Daily Mail, Huffington post and LA Weekly.
The Huffington Post listed two works by Plastic Jesus in the end of year round up of “The Best of Los Angeles Street art 2012”
He has been described by the leading Los Angeles street art blog ‘Melrose and fairfax’ as “The Banksy of LA”
Plastic Jesus is not about revolution, he is not an anarchist or anti-establishment. His work is more about shining a small light into some of those dark corners of society then standing back and watching reactions and opinions.
