Featured Artist: Matthew Warren
Born in 1982 on the Island of Guernsey off the coast of France, Warren studied for his BFA at the University of The West of England, where he graduated with Honors, before undertaking his MFA at OTIS college of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
His art practice explores methods of representation stemming from American popular culture, which he masterfully expresses through drawing, sculpture and performative strategies. His artistic perspective on America is unique, enhanced through living in the environment of his investigation and production.
For his recent work he has recycled Hollywood's iconography in the form of movie posters, by creating a series of drawings in 3B pencil which reflect the essence of chosen films selected for their relevance in pop culture. The design and composition of the posters are influenced by the films characters and themes, and draw inspiration from the movies color palette and imagery.
Each poster dissects the films narrative and chooses a singular image, which frames the film in a fresh way depicting its spirit and cult status.
Warrens work can be found in a number of public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad, and has been in numerous exhibitions worldwide. He currently lives and works in Great Britain and Los Angeles.

Tribute to Ray Manzarek
Celebrating their 15th anniversary, this highly acclaimed act pays tribute to Jim Morrison and The Doors by recreating the magic and intensity of a Doors concert experience. Based out of Venice, California, lead singer Tony Fernandez lives out every move of Jim Morrison on stage and delivers a powerful recreation of true likeness in presence, vocals, mannerisms and spirit. Peace Frog is the drama and rock theater that made the Doors famous. Dark and spooky, mystical and hypnotic, the band demonstrates the ability to transform any room into an actual Doors concert experience. With intoxicating renditions of "Hello, I Love You", "Light My Fire", "L.A. Woman", "The End" and many of the Doors classic songs, Peace Frog has the crowd entranced! Jim Morrison can no longer perform live, but when you witness Peace Frog you will think you are at Doors concert. It is a must see for all Doors fans and for anyone looking to experience an amazing recreation of a Doors show!
