Maximillian Gallery at The Sunset Marquis Hotel and LA CANVAS announce plans today to launch a partnership that will merge their complementary strengths to advance their common vision of presenting gritty street artists to larger audiences.
Maximillian Gallery is the first burgeoning art gallery housed within a hotel, and the notorious Sunset Marquis Hotel is the perfect home for its art. With a primary focus on the courageous street art that is unique to our City of Angels, Maximillian Gallery represents an array of talent, including painters, sculptors, photographers and illustrators. An avid art collector himself, the gallery was founded and is curated by Caradoc, who also boasts a rich business career with more than twenty years experience in marketing, licensing, product placement, digital strategy and consumer products.
To kick off the partnership, The LA CANVAS Street Art section, who sends their gal Emily Bradley out and about all over town and exposes the city through her restless photography, will now be Powered by Maximillian Gallery, and Maximillian Gallery’s Street Art Blog will now be Powered by LA CANVAS and feature Emily’s brilliant photography. Jointly, they will invest an ever-widening audience in the flavor that makes our city the one to watch and echo.
Maximillian Gallery’s Caradoc explains, “We are very excited to be working with this leading magazine of art and culture in LA, and the talented Emily Bradley, as we bring emerging art to broader audiences.”
LA CANVAS’ Shana Nys Dambrot comments, “The partnership with Maximillian Gallery is a perfect example of how LA CANVAS blends its obsession with street art with an appreciation for the more glamorous sides of LA culture. That’s what the gallery does, too — it’s like we are soul mates!”
Watch for this promising partnership to reshape the scene, as we know it. Between Maximillian Gallery’s access to a veritable who’s-who of celebrities and tastemakers through The Sunset Marquis Hotel, and the attention that LA CANVAS commands from the city’s most ferocious trendsetters, this will prove to be a formidable union.
