Wonzimer presents all new paintings by emerging artist Elisa Rossi. Raised and born in Carpi, Italy, now based in Los Angeles, Elisa is a mixed media abstract artist with hints of figurative subject matter. Over a short period she has developed a peculiar, original visual language that evokes dreamlike, metaphysical worlds filled with unfiltered, unadulterated concepts, messages and memories. Allowing the observer to shape a dialogue with the artwork as well as allowing them to experience it with the highest amount of freedom and encouraging them to relate to art without the conditioning of pre-existing meanings. This Friday June 21st Join us on a journey into the unknown, A highlight of the night will be an acoustic performance of Ruth, an artist that has profoundly inspired Elisa and who is often the muse of her expressive figurative paintings and drawings. Artist Ruth symbolizes a woman that embodies strength, independence and grace which Elisa embraces and celebrates in her paintings. This is a rare chance to see authentic raw creative talents come to fruition.

‘Killing Me Softly’
Figurative Group Showing
The conversion between the realm of classical art and what is considered modern, in a sense triumphs those who oppose change. Dreams, inceptions, and reality play a definitive role in the metaphysical manifestation of Artwork. The exhibition ‘Killing Me Softly’ explores the conservative role modern figurative work plays in the 21st century, curating artwork that encompass traditional stylistic choices while displaying peculiar and abnormal content that has only become more familiar in modern history.
Wonzimer attempts to find a narrative between diverse and global artists such as Cyril Kuhn from Zurich (Switzerland), Eddie Jelinet from Mexico, TMac a Los Angeles Local from the UK, Leah Vineyard from Arizona, Chloe McCrossen and Heaven Vaine from Long Beach and Richard Scandaliato from Los Angeles. The artists will showcase figurative art work which evoke a reconsideration of what is possible in the art form of painting with the nearly limitless fountain of information and inspiration that modern technology allows us.
The title ‘Killing Me Softly’ captures the transformation of our associations through time! The variety of interchanging complex emotions we feel from a piece of art can drastically change when examining the context of where we currently stand in history.
Wonzimer is excited to present the first addition of their DMA events (Dance, Music, Art)! On the 12th of April we present Acoustic Music sets by Australian native Saintrien, Los angeles locals Gavin Haley and Milah Renee which present a sentimental and eclectic modern take on acoustic Music. Elisa Rossi is having her debut at the Wonzimer gallery showing her emotionally resonant artworks! And to round of the night we will present a dance choreography by Special guest Ohduka to make sure everyone leaves inspired!

Sebastian was introduced to art an early age by both his grandparents and his Uncle Pontus all of whom had art in their homes and were quite familiar with many artists, which they introduced Sebastian to growing up! It became apparent that he was more interested in the artists. Their lives and work ethic rather than art itself, His first fascination was with Van Gogh, and his descent into madness as chronicled in his work. As a teenager his fascination with Warhol and his individual and distinctive originality in his approach to art grew but it was Sebastians unwavering and curiosity interest sparked his desire to find his voice in a creative venue!
In his teens he tried writing music. But began to venture into other areas in his early adult years such as: talent management, entrepreneurship, and even as a hairstylist. None of them seemed to fit the bill, About a year and a half ago. Sebastian started painting. and his voice discovered its freedom. He realized that the use of large canvases gave his minimalistic approach in his paintings the freedom to give his voice the expressive space it needed. His art comes totally from within him and through that his lack of any formal training has allowed him to create entirely from a personal perspective sharing his life’s journey and all the emotions that accompany it, Sebastian believes that his use of density combined with his creation of atmosphere are the most important aspects of his work!
Because of his minimalistic approach to his art on large canvases. Sebastian allows his viewers the opportunity to find whatever speaks to them on a personal level, This creates a bond between him and his viewers, Although his journey to free his creative voice has been difficult and discouraging at times. His perseverance has been reward and his voice now speaks volumes.

Jung Yun is a Los Angeles based painter and multimedia artist. His paintings explore atmospheric color fields, floating shapes, and thick gestural brushstrokes as windows to an abstract dimension. Developing various planes of iridescence, transparency, and saturation, the different layers form a multidimensional landscape.
Jung Yun’s multimedia paintings explore the contemporary digital language by projecting a video onto a painting. Connecting and disconnecting the physical painting to the digital painting, he creates a physical-digital experience like that of virtual reality.

Sessions of Consciousness explores the world behind the art. We see how the times, places and lifestyles John Greer experienced impact his work. As a child and teenager, John Greer explored the coastal environment of his small hometown in Southern California.

As a young adult, John Greer moved to Los Angeles where he saw massive urban structures and more diverse populations. With this exhibition, you will have a glimpse into John Greer's many sessions of consciousness.
