French artist Vincent Lamouroux   
covers the entire Sunset pacific motel (aka BATES MOTEL), including it's surrounding palm trees and billboard with an opaque white lime wash. The bleached structure creates a stark visual contrast set against the clear blue Los Angeles sky, inviting an interpretive experience for visitors without a possible point of physical entry.

Bizarre Life


Embrace Your Fantasies: Bizarre Life – The Art of Elmer Batters & Eric Stanton

TASCHEN Gallery announces the opening of Bizarre Life – The Art of Elmer Batters & Eric Stanton, a controversial and essential exhibit that traces the artistic struggle of these two pioneers of fetish art, from the gritty post-war streets of Times Square to their position today as cultural icons.

8070 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048

Exhibit  runs from
March 27 -May 29, 2015

If not for the moral chaos of World War II, Eric Stanton and Elmer Batters might have sublimated their indecent obsessions and spent lives illustrating catalogs, or photographing weddings. But after the clarifying effect of near death, each embraced his difference, and returned home to hack a heroic creative path through contemptuous and villainous publishers, multiple arrests, loss of family, and occasionally, freedom, to be who he had to be.

Salvador Dali's house

 To Salvador dali's summer  house and museum we go.  Located in  Figures, Spain.

You can find this giant installation at his museum,  climb up the stair case to get the BIG VIEW.

During the summer Dali would live in a small town next to the mediterranean sea.  He also has a winter house that I haven't been able to check out yet.  These photo were taken on a trip I took in 2006.  I wanted to start out this year with a tribute to my favorite artist and muse.  Walking around his house you really get to see and understand how he came up with a lot of his paintings.  Dali loved taxidermy and had tons of it throughout.

Dali has multiple living rooms. This one is for business and people he didn't care for. 

This living room is for his closest friends. it's in a circular shape so everyone can see each other.

A picture of Gala hangs above his studio door.

through out the house you will find hallways that will lead to nowhere. 

Inspiration was a much inside as outside.  His pool was constructed in the shape of a penis.

 Handful of different size eggs where built onto the house.  

As you exit the house you come across this guy who says good bye for him incase he didn't.

 museo was 20 minutes away from his house and it was worth the very long wait
