More Thom Lessner party pics from Rose


We are really cramming amazing “ART EXPERIENCES” down your gullets this month. No rest for us, or you! Thom Lessner is here, and he is putting the final touches on the amazing show he has in store this Friday.. hope you can make it out, or at least make out!!!!!!

THIS los angeles is pleased to present Turbo Lover, an exhibition of new works by Thom Lessner. The unique works on display include paintings, painted paper sculptures, and hand sewn felt signs. Lessner’s work draws a good deal of influence from 1980s popular culture and rock bands. Whether it’s references to caricatured rock gods, teenage collections, the artist studio, or hand made fan signs, the works serve as stand-ins holding the place for a desired myth while also paying homage to personal heroes.

Thom Lessner is a native Ohioan currently living in Philadelphia. Thom’s parodied renditions of 80s pop culture figures have become his signature style. Thom is an ardent skateboarder and rock n’ roll star in the costume-clad band Sweetheart. Thom has done work for and with POKETO, Shepherd Fairey, and a multitude of magazines including Thrasher, Vice, Swindle, and Spin. Thom’s works have traveled to Los Angeles, New York, and internationally.
