I AM DON JUAN
by Danger and Robert Sanchez
In I AM DON JUAN, masks are stripped, layers are peeled, and true natures are revealed. With bold strokes and brazen emotions, Danger and Robert Sanchez dives head first and cuts through a sea of barriers and unearths the inner demons of the everyman. Paying tribute to the legendary Spanish womanizer, they dismantle deception and awaken the beast that sleeps in the human abyss.
Rob Sanchez is a DJ and a businessman, as well as a self taught artist. Though Sanchez has always been interested in art from a young age, after college he pursued his interest in music istead and would later become a DJ, selling records while he managed an audio systems enterprise. It was through a business partnership with an art gallery that his creative instincts were triggered once again.
Sanchez works are primarily ex
pressionistic, dramatic portra its replete with distorted, thick lines and incongruous forming gnarly surfaces of painted faces. This artist duly approaches his paintings with a process that aims to capture the essence of his subjects.
In his return to art, he recalls painting one of the gallery’s visiting artist who called his work “disturbing”, an affirmation which Sanchez took positively. In no time, his paintings gained a steady demand from his friends and people from his immediate social circle have been asking him to do their portraits or of somebody else. As of this time, he has ongoing commissioned portraits that include celebrities like Juana Change, Ruffy Biazon, Mark Munoz and Senator Dick Gordon to name a few. Now earning good response from audience, he stridently confronts his talents with finessing reassurance that went dormant for many years.

SHIT FOR BREAKFAST is when you wake up in the morning and you have pink eye. It's the fly in your whiskey glass when you have the last drop of alcohol. A bowl full of cereal and an empty carton of milk.
Chichimonster and Notti, collectively, GODHAND reflects on the reality that is life - the elephant in the room and the other side of the story. It's the day to day struggle that people constantly face but never quite talk about. The two collaborate in a series of paintings of satire and the mundane reflecting present day truths and inconveniences.
The show also includes sculptures continuing the conversation of Chichimonster's 1% Luxury where the man made becomes dogmatic symbols repurposed and faced with the social convenience of accesibility and the hype and how ridiculous it all is fully aware that everyhing done today will eventually be a future relic.
Chichimonster continues and expounds more in SHIT FOR BREAKFAST with his signature photo - realistic portraits of walls , reflecting memories and things that irk his scubconcious expressed in the abstractions that he makes.
Feast on reality with us tomorrow, July 2, 2014, Wednesday. See you there!
