On a crisp FSHAGwFanebruary LA night last weekend, Josh Agle aka Shag, returned to Corey Helford Gallery.  It’s been three years since this Mid-Century Modernism, martini-loving artist unveiled his newest solo show entitled, Animal Kingdom.


WShagOpeninghen asked to describe his latest pieces, SHAG replied, “It’s about getting back to your animal instincts,” with a twist of tiki and an olive. Personally, my favorite is his love for the kitty–  his signature lanky black with her ever color-changing cat eyes.

The gallery was popping with fans, music and of course, CHG’s libations & sweets.

“Animal Kingdom” will remain on view until March 3rd 2012.
