Art Project Los Angeles is excited to announce Plastic Jesus as the featured artist of the fifth annual fundraiser for AIDS Project Los Angeles, which takes place June 6 at Bonhams in Hollywood.
Plastic Jesus was selected from a group of talented artists in the event’s first-ever juried competition and will be featured in the Art Project catalogue as well as in the event’s live auction.
Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles-based street artist who specializes in bold works inspired by current events, the urban environment, pop culture, and politics. He utilizes irony and criticism to create artworks that engage on multiple levels. His eye-catching pieces include the recent “No Kardashian Parking Anytime” signs recently posted in Los Angeles, as well as the ongoing project in which the artist stenciled the now-iconic phrase “Stop Making Stupid People Famous” throughout the streets of Los Angeles, New York, London, and Paris.
A unique, one-off canvas work with this phrase made specifically for Art Project 2015 will be featured in the event’s live auction.
Proceeds from Art Project Los Angeles support a variety of vital services that APLA and APLA Health & Wellness provide to over 12,000 Angelenos every year.
Art Project Los Angeles takes place June 6 at Bonhams in Hollywood. For tickets and additional information, please visit apla.org/artproject.
