Making Waves in the Art World

By Henry K. Long

After coming off a successful run of art fairs, Westside local Brayden Bugazzi is set to be featured in two more Los Angeles based fairs in February.

“In the past few months I was in the Context Art Fair next to Art Miami during Art Basel, and the LA Art Show, and both where a lot of fun. I had more works up at the LA Art Show, and I got to talk to hundreds of people about my idea and process, and it was a lot of fun for me,” Bugazzi said.

Bugazzi has a background as a photographer (shooting A-list celebrities). However, it was when he started to create mixed media artworks, that the art world took notice and his work started selling. Bugazzi’s masterful collages use both a pop and classical approach to art. Created with recycled magazines, he creates artwork with his own personal flair that most artist cannot replicate. He has said that he feels a satisfaction into breathing new life into these discarded magazines. He has injected more and into of these pop images into his collages, creating two very different views…from across the gallery, the viewer sees the broad amiable sense of a pop-inspired artwork. However, looking closer, one sees the controversy that often accompanies our lives. Bugazzi adeptly unites both of these visions.

The artworks created by the artist feature celebrity icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Queen Latifah, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and more. His work has been featured in Vogue.com and many other international magazines.

Bugazzi said he was looking forward to showing his work at Art in LA Affair 2019, which is co-presented with Artsy, and AC Gallery in Hollywood and SuperFine! Art Fair taking place at the Reef in downtown LA.

This will be the first time Bugazzi will be participating in Art in LA Affair which is presented by Artsy, and he will be showing 3-4 of his mixed media works. “I am using this as a chance to experiment with creating an interactive experience with my art. Up until this point I have done art that you hang on the wall, a few murals, or something that has a pop Icon I like, but I have been wanting to do something fun that the viewer can take part in.”

Bugazzi will be doing an interactive series that people can take photos in. “I will also have some of my signature works up too.” See https://braydenart.com to learn more about artist Brayden Bugazzi.
