Dez Einswell opened his solo exhibition at the Upstairs Gallery in X-LARGE LA last night (7.19.07) to a strong crowd throughout the night. Dez went all out with a mural on the front window of the store, several wall installations inside, two 20" Dunnys and a "barn" installation complete with bails of hay up in the gallery space. He filled the gallery with original paintings, a 20" MAD*L, and several prints on fabric.
The opening also served as the debut release of the brand new X-LARGE x Dez vinyl figure. Dez took the X-LARGE’s Gorilla mascot and gave it the Doodlebarn treatment. The Silverback figure sits on all fours for a menacing look. Thirty figures were released ($85) at the opening with the full run on the way. These should be available at the STD booth for SDCC.
