Justin Van Hoy

Last week our great friend and gallery partner Justin Van Hoy passed away. He was the true heart and soul of THIS. There really are no words to express our sadness with his passing and also the happiness we all had when he was around. His life is a true inspiration and he supported and touched the lives of so many people. We miss you so much buddy.

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 is an ardent skateboarder and rock n’ roll star in the costume-clad band Sweetheart.
