Galley 1988 Announces Jerrod Maruyama Solo Art Show, Cutesy Opening On October 25

Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles has announced Jerrod Maruyama’s solo art show. Cutesy will open later this month.

The artist describes the show:

“My work has always been labeled Cutesy. Sometimes that is meant as a compliment. Other times – like in college – not so much. But no matter what the reaction might be over the years, I continue to salute the cute. I respect its power and mass appeal. Cute is timeless. Cute is emotional. It cuts to the heart. It evokes a gut reaction. And isn’t that what we want from art?

This show is a celebration of all things cute. It is a random collection of inspiration, nostalgia and pop culture. Each image attempts to present its subject matter in the cutest way possible. As is the case with all my work, I want to get to the heart of the appeal of my subject. I never want to force-fit a topic into my style. I want to boil it down to its most basic elements. I don’t want to get in the way. I just want to present what we love about these characters and stories in their most concentrated state. That is what I hope to achieve with this show. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.”

The show opens Friday, October 25th and will run through November 9th.
