Paul D’Elia’s solo exhibition “Strange Obsessions” marks his long awaited return to Cella Gallery. The show features all new work including large scale prints and collage, along with a large interactive installation piece.
D’Elia is best known for his work with California surf company Quiksilver as head designer for their popular mens line of t-shirts. Fans of independent punk most likely have D’Elia’s work on the cover of any number of albums from Blacklisted to Modern Life is War. Under his company name: Screenin 4 A Change, D'Elia has produced hundreds of gig posters. Over one hundred of these limited edition posters were part of the wildly successful "Something from Nothing” exhibit that was held in Los Angeles in 2010. A selection of these original gig posters will also be available.
“Paul’s work is executed with a level of sophistication, command of design, sense of composition and a wink and a nod that so often eludes others. Paul’s work demands the viewer’s full attention.” - Adrew Jaukmauh
Also on view at Cella Gallery is a collection of prints, books and tees from favorite artists including: Tara McPherson, Alex Pardee, Dave Correia and Thea Saks.
