Whew. Who said curating was easy. 193 pieces are hung for your viewing pleasure at the always fabulous Ghetto Gloss Gallery in Hollywood.
I say these Dogs look great en masse. The Danger Dogs are a Fair Trade Art project promoting Nepalese signboard art. To date, 1250 signboards have been commissioned, giving work to endangered Nepali signboard artists. Digital art is replacing hand-painted signs at a rapid rate. Everyone loves modernism. These unsung artists are varied in their styles. I have worked with 56 artists from Nepal.
Of course, every signboard you see on this blog today is available for $200. There are some steals. Some will sell for less. Generous discounts -- especially if you have a dog that looks like an existing Danger Dog. You have to agree that these 30 Nepali signboards look good together.
(Good thing I'm tall.) Wouldn't these look great in a restaurant? Everyone loves dogs. These pieces appeal to pet lovers who collect art and would like to make a difference to Nepali signboard artists.
Cats and birds are represented, too, of course.
Hope to see you on Thursday. Go to GhettoGloss.com for more details.

Every Danger Dog has a story.... And I know them all!
