Think Tank Gallery 's show Dude, Monsters!, a group exhibition curated and arranged by Luke Pelletier and co-curated by Think Tank gallerist Jacob Patterson opened July 12th to a packed crowd of skateboarders, art enthusiasts, and art buyers. We headed down with one of the artist in the show visiting from Perth, Australia Sean Morris for opening night.
Dude, Monsters! was a group show organized by the talented 19 year old dude Luke Pelletier and the guys at Think Tank. They both did a great job.

Young bloods and one dust collector --- Alex Legolvan, Luke Pelletier, Miles Jackson, Bryan Petersen, Sean Morris, and old man Mike Hsiung.
Think Tank Gallery is a downtown, industrial-looking space that fits the aesthetic of the show, and with site-responsive installation work by Brandon Munoz, the basis of the show shines through with the character of the environment. Each piece reflects the views of artists of varying backgrounds, and the list of mostly local artists is one of the show's greatest accomplishments. The artists involved are Donny Miller, Wes Humpston, Michael Sieben,Jimbo Phillips, Michael Hsiung, Mitch Froelich, Dillon Froelich, Ben Horton, Nathan Brown,Mildred, Pacolli, Sean Morris, John Malta, Luke Pelletier, Jacob Patterson, Brad Rohloff, Bryan Peterson, Miles Jackson, Ben Jensen, Gregoy Siff, Alexander Legolvan, Kaleb Higgins,Shplinton, and Nosego.

Think Tank Gallery is located on Maple street in downtown LA. It's a giant space with gallery and artist studio spaces. The space is rad and I think you'll be seeing some really good shows there.

Another artist I've been following and really dig is John Malta. His pieces were super nicely done, and I like his cardboard narrative. Oh yeah, all sold. Good job dude!

Ben Horton's works some of the sweetest ink pieces.
Monsters aren't just mythical creatures or made-up type of stuff. Donny Miller's pieces have some real life monsters, politicians.

I took Sean down to Venice to get a weed card and some Henna tattoos, but I also took him to Eric McHenry's show This Exists Now at Insight, which was super good. We all bought a piece.
