New Image Art presents RETNA

| February 19, 2013 | Parties

New Image Art and Robert Galstian presents one of the country’s most innovative artist – RETNA who opened up his downtown studio for an intimate group of international art collectors, Los Angeles tastemakers and other key art enthusiasts. These art patrons got a rare “behind-the-scenes” look inside the world of RETNA.

Guests viewed new and existing works by RETNA, featuring a myriad of mixed media and his redefined interpretations of calligraphy. All indulged in hand-crafted spirits provided by Balvenie and Beluga Vodka as well as artisanal bites created by Chef ScottTremonti of The Urban Oven. Guests had the opportunity to bid on two pieces- Andrea Fiuczynski—president of Christie's Los Angeles did the live auction. A percentage of proceeds from the auction will benefit Inner-City Arts, a non-profit providing arts education to empower students to create their future.

The evening was held in conjunction with ART LOS ANGELES CONTEMPORARY, the premier International Contemporary Art Fair of the West Coast, which attracts culturally active and influential individuals who travel to Los Angeles from locations around the US as well as abroad. The art fair reflects the pace of Los Angeles as the fastest growing art market, with rapid expansion as an international force in the art world.
