“Wax Poetic Gallery’s 9th Annual Halloween Show featuring the art of Pinky Toast. Opening Reception Saturday, October 11.
Original art, prints and accessories will be available for sale through the
run of the show which closes January 5th, 2009.
Burbank, CA. (October 2, 2008) Wax Poetic Gallery is proud to present the sexy, sassy, charming and at times haunting art of Pinky Toast. Opening reception will be held Saturday, October 11 from 8-11 p.m.; records will be spinning by resident DJ, DJ Jag and refreshments will be served. This show is suitable for all ages and will be on display through the end of the year. In addition to original paintings, the gallery will have prints, and lots of fun Pinky Toast accessories available for sale as well.
Pinky Toast studied at Cal Arts, San Francisco Art Institute and abroad in Mexico & Florence. The primary subject of her pieces center around doll-like girls, with pouty eyes that would make anime characters green with envy, along with an element of the macabre: one girl might be hiding a knife behind their back, while another has arms made of gnarled tree branches. Her early influences as an artist came from her dad’s collection of Robert Crumb comics, “The Wizard of Oz”, and the Muppets.
This show will be the first solo show for the artist. Says Wax Poetic owner Kerry Hite, “We are thrilled to be the first gallery to do a solo exhibition with Pinky Toast. And I am certain we will not be the last.”
Pinky Toast will be in attendance. “I’m pretty excited,” said the artist, “It will be the first time I get to meet the people who buy my work. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Wax Poetic’s Annual Halloween show kicks off a month full of cool events in Los Angeles centered around Halloween and it is also a bit of a Costume Ball so feel free to dress up. The girls from Wax Poetic will be dressing up in the style of Pinky Toast’s characters.” from Wax Poetic Gallery Openings
