Downtown Modernism Walking Tour

In conjunction with my City Modernism II exhibit, now open at the George Billis Gallery LA, I'll be leading an exclusive (and FREE) Downtown Modernism Walking Tour on Saturday, April 25th, from 2-4pm with the organization de LaB (Design East of LaBrea).  Join me as I walk from downtown LA's famous DWP Building to Parker Center, stopping at iconic examples of mid-century Modernism found along the way.  As I discuss what led me to feature these buildings in my latest show, author Alan Hess will provide their historical and architectural background.  For more info and to RSVP, please visit de LaB's website.

Mar Vista Modernism

Mar Vista Entryway, oil on panel, 8x10", 2014
This is the latest piece in my smaller 8x10" paintings I've been doing.  This fun example of mid-century cool is from the Mar Vista tract designed by Gregory Ain in 1947 and most recently featured in the Showtime series "Masters of Sex."  If interested in this painting, please contact me for details.

American Art Collector

American Art Collector Magazine, Oct 2014 Issue
I'm thrilled to announce that American Art Collector magazine has put out a great write-up on my Vintage New York City exhibit.  Read about what drew me to NYC and how I chose to paint it, all in the October 2014 issue on sale now. 

Updated Eichler

Eichler Carport Interior #2 (old), oil on canvas, 36x48", 2008
Eichler Carport Interior #2 (revised), oil on canvas, 36x48", 2014
I originally painted this carport of an Eichler house back in 2008 (top image) as part of my larger series of Eichler homes located in LA.  Over the years, I had time to really scrutinize this piece and thought it warranted a few changes.  After some adjustments to color and composition, I came up with an updated version seen here (bottom image).  If interested, please email me for availability: danny@dannyhellerart.com
