bG Gallery Presents Kilduff’s Saloon, est. 2021 Feature exhibition at the 2021 LA Art Show
As a featured exhibition for the 2021 LA Art Show, bG Gallery presents Kilduff’s Saloon, est. 2021. Los Angeles-based artist John Kilduff has created an interactive installation at the fair built from paintings and cardboard sculptures to look like a neighborhood bar establishment. Attendees will have the opportunity to step into the immersive installation and order ‘drinks’ hand-painted by the artist. Kilduff will create new paintings of cocktails and specialty drinks daily. Participants will have the opportunity to order what is on tap or, when the artist is in, order custom drinks off-menu. A portion of the proceeds will go to supporting bar and venue workers who are experiencing financial hardships due to the pandemic.
Based in Los Angeles John Kilduff, aka Mr Let’s Paint, is known for his daring performance art and his television show, Let’s Paint TV. Through his show and work, Kilduff pushes his painting endurance through a series of multitasking and painting challenges to encourage audiences to embrace creativity and self-expression through life’s obstacles. These have included painting while riding a bike and shaving, painting 100 portraits at a gallery reception among others. He has been a hero of counterculture art for over 20 years and an influence to comedians such as Eric Andre and Tom Green, and his work has been featured from VICE to Artnet.
