artist spotlight :: mercedes helnwein


If you've seen the most current Lula Magazine (#9) then you undoubtedly came across the Austrian-born Ireland/LA inhabiting artist, Mercedes Helnwein. But if for some reason you missed it OR you saw it but want to see more I thought I'd post this beautiful video from Lula * *update**uh-oh it's been taken down (it's still on Lula's site under "dark star") for the time being there's this one:

and few of my favorites from her portfolio...








It was so hard to pick just a few! more here

**If you are in the LA area be sure to catch her upcoming show East of Eden at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery on La Brea Ave, opening reception Saturday November 14, 8-11pm.

Happy Friday, everyone! xxDJRD

Dang, I'll be in LA the following week! Looks like a great artist. I love how realistic the emotions are, even through that medium.
