The art gallery at The MAIN in Old Town Newhall will feature “Moncho1929,” an exhibition of works by the avant-garde artist born Dan Monteavaro from May 15 through June 15.
An opening reception for “Moncho1929” will take place on Thursday, May 17 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The MAIN. Reception attendees will be able to view the artwork, enjoy light refreshments and meet the artist.
Monteavaro, aka Moncho, is known for his attention-catching commissioned murals and politically themed pieces. Through continuing evolutions in his world travel throughout London, Italy and Korea, his work has developed a focus on social commentary.
He uses a variety of diverse techniques, ranging from graffiti and street art stylings, to traditional forms such as silkscreen and representational drawing, even integrating Warhol-influenced pop art aesthetics.
Born and raised in New York City, Moncho now resides and works in Los Angeles. Since his arrival on the West Coast, his work has been featured by the Los Angeles French Consulate, NBC, Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Whole Foods Market, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Co., The NBA and the city governments of Glendale, West Hollywood, San Pedro, and Los Angeles, among others.
The gallery at The MAIN is open for viewing during all events, as well as Tuesdays through Fridays, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The MAIN is located at 24266 Main Street, Newhall 91321.
