Amongst more than hundred and forty prominent global galleries, no participating gallery has ever been allowed to represent only one artist in the twenty years of history of LA Art Show. Kazaz Gallery again exclusively exhibits the unrivaled artworks of Emil Kazaz, as one and only represented artist of the gallery and cordially invites the art-loving public, art students, collectors, dealers, galleries and museums to visit one of the most fascinating and influential events of the year. Come and enjoy the atypical exhibition of Emil Kazaz’s inimitable bronze sculptures, numinous oil paintings, meticulous drawings and mixed media along with the rest of the artworks the participating galleries have to offer.
Allow the master to take you to a world where Salomé and John the Baptist, Judith and Holofernes are reincarnated through a modern lens, feel the morbid eroticism of his eternal heroes and heroines, relate to them, judge them, criticize them, get inspired and why not even agitated. Allow the senses to look beyond the everyday and reflect what is truly inside each and every one of us. Allow yourself what has today become a luxury, admire art, acquire it, share it and pass it on through generations to come. The life of Art depends on its tradition, preservation and appreciation. So it is also our great pleasure to inform you that the Master himself has consciously chosen to step away from his world of mysticism and magic for very practical reasons, to organize and aid art for children, children for art program. For five days, leading galleries from around the world showcase their latest acquisitions at the annual LA Art Show—there’s something for everyone here, from art history majors to avant-garde gallery owners. A ‘Fair-within-a-Fair,’ each section is sharply focused to respect the specific tastes of collectors and the broad sensibilities of the global gallery community, showcasing the highest caliber galleries enhanced by exceptional programming and special exhibitions. While joining us for an evening of creativity and philanthropy, where the LA Art Show brings worldwide attention to the Los Angeles art scene, our Opening Gala Night Premiere Party will embrace the Birthday Celebration of Emil Kazaz and the 10th Anniversary of Kazaz Gallery. Emil Kazaz himself, along with the gallery staff, will welcome the visitors to the Historic and Traditional Contemporary Section’s Booth 333 for Book Signing, Meet the Artist – Get the Autograph, choose your favorite artwork and have its Certificate of Authenticity signed by the Master, and enjoy the unforgettable Red Carpet photos to make memories last infinitely.
Life without art is a life not worth living. Let us come together for an enchanting evening of high art, appreciation, dialogue and a rare chance to meet the genius who has definitely left his mark on the art by reviving elements of the past, has paved the golden avenues to the future and most importantly has tapped into the subconscious of the observer, stirring emotions beyond any depth or perspective imaginable. The guests of Gala Night will be the first to preview art from the highest caliber galleries, connect with LA’s top collectors, dealers, patrons and benefactors for an event to support bringing kids to art and art to kids. The generosity of the invitees has the power to deliver creative inspiration and joy to medically fragile children and transport students to the magical world of a preeminent museum. For the price of a Gala ticket to the must-attend event of the year, the honorable Gala Guests will join Emil Kazaz for an evening of creativity and philanthropy, hosted by Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, an evening of exciting art and live music with L.A.’s radio station 100.3 and DJ Big Drop. A taste of Los Angeles will be brought to you by 18 restaurants including some of Downtown’s hottest dining establishments serving their signature dishes from Sushi to Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, and American, including the staple of L.A., Tacos and Pink’s Hot Dogs. Enjoy culinary, visual, and cultural delights, specialty beverages, premier wine, sake and top shelf liquor courtesy of L.A.’s finest 18 restaurants. As the leading art fair in Los Angeles, LA ART SHOW is proud and honored to be celebrating 20 years. Enjoy the fine art, support this year’s beneficiary and a child will be transformed by the power of art.
The 20th Annual Los Angeles Art Show is one of the oldest and longest running venues for historic, contemporary, modern and traditional art in the country. Over fifty thousand culture hounds and art buffs flock to the LA Art Show each year, which offers five days of exhibits. Designed with the serious collector in mind, the show is entirely unique in the art world, providing attendees with a complete art experience through an expansive breadth of galleries, which bring together works of contemporary, historic, and print genres. Moreover, the show will provide a large platform for the visitors and exhibitors to meet and discuss the magic of art and achieve quality professional and emotional bonding. The 2012 show hosted more than hundred and twenty high-end galleries from around the globe and drew more than fifty thousand visitors. Some of the early artworks of Emil Kazaz were featured in the Modern and Contemporary Section and turned out to be one of the highlights of the LA Art Show 2012. The following year of 2013, Kazaz Gallery exclusively showcased the Master’s latest and awarded works – new bronze sculptures and oil paintings in the Historic and Traditional Contemporary Section of LA Art Show 2013.
This year Kazaz Gallery offers its guests a rare glimpse into the world of timeless classical, as well as contemporary elements and subjects at the LA Art Show 2015. Kazaz reinvents himself once again with the new body of sculptures, oil paintings and mixed media. An endless play of forms, lines and light are part of what Kazaz considers the epitome of his works. Each sculpture has an unmistakable trait from the classical era – refined and reimagined. “Emil Kazaz thinks with his senses, feels with his mind, puts vision into words of his brush and sculpts his poems into bronze. His art is the result of a vision beyond the frontiers of international art, looking back to not only the Renaissance or towards rapidly evolving artistic languages but the very heart of humanity,” said Monet Airian Kazaz
“People live in a world imposed on them. I create the world I choose to live in… I am born for Art and I live for Art. What message? When the bee makes the honey, does it think about message? When the hen lays eggs, does it think about message? And when the pregnant woman bears a child, does she think about the message? Likewise, when I sculpt, paint or draw, I never think about any message. The message is what you see and understand… My word is my work… My work is my world… Welcome to my world…”
