The Hollywood Arts Council welcomes Artist Ian Ross for a talk and painting live on February 28, from 6pm to 8pm at PROJECT Gallery, where his current show, “Hyperorganic” is on exhibition.. Ross’s vibrant colors and huge scale will really ramp up the live painting. You can check out his art in our coverage of his opening.
As the in-house resident artist at Facebook HQ during 2011 in Palo Alto, Ross painted four murals in the offices and cafe of Facebook, including one during a 24 “Hackathon” that was filmed and used on MTV’s “Diary of Facebook”. He also painted a 110 ft mural in San Francisco that was featured on the cover of the Wall St. Journal for a story called “Graffiti’s New Enemy, Legal Art”. Other notable live murals include his 70 ft piece titled “Royal Feathers” in the Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas that was featured in Vegas Rated magazine, his 10 mural “environment” inside Start-Up House in SF, and a 60 ft. tall behemoth on their exterior facing the Bay Bridge.
