This solo stencil portrait show was originally scheduled awhile back at a couple different venues originally curated by Deryke Cardenaz. Now, finally it's happening at The Boyd. Hope you can come by and see this new body of work.

Treiops Treyfid has set his sights on his friends in the local LA art scene as subjects for his upcoming portraiture project and solo show. An entire body of new work will be displayed. The simple, posed portraits give Treyfid the excuse to explore his library of materials combining them in new and different ways. The new artworks are put upon surfaces salvaged from the sides of roads and garbage bins. Old cheap furniture, thrown away doors, ripped out wall board, broken glass and mirror are among the humble surfaces used. The dramatic works are rife with stains, dirt, rips, drips, splashes, slashes, dust, scrapes, breaks, cuts, and tape. An often present element in the new works is the grid which Treyfid uses to reign in a sense of order in a chaotic milieu of detritus. Treyfid employs the use of the spray paint stencil to good effect in the new mixed media pieces, a technique long and often used in his past artworks. These new works are particularly well suited to a dark, dirty, gritty city environment.
