The show will feature ten paintings and two charcoal drawings. The show will focus on cultural icons, images that have shaped his life. Growing up in a less than perfect, (to say it mildly) family environment, his art saved him.

It allowed him to escape the disruptive environment. Inspired by the urban sprawl, Nash tells a personal story with his lonesome imagery of highways and gas stations across Los Angeles.

His homage to Hollywood inspired scenes has attracted the attention of many actors, producers, filmmakers as well as beside the scenes high powered people.
