THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES  ECLECTIC FLAUNT MAGAZINE ARTISTS FOR P3STUDIO SPRING RESIDENCIES

 

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announces a unique line-up of renowned artists scheduled for the P3Studio artist-in-residence program. After recent successful collaboration on Do Not Disturb with Flaunt Magazine, The Date Farmers, Bert Rodriguez, Alan Aldridge and David LaChapelle are set to showcase their unique individual styles in the ever-changing P3Studio.

For those looking to take a piece of the artwork home, an exclusive set of door hangers that includes work by each artist is available for $30 starting Wednesday, Feb. 27 at Monogram and Vitals, located on The Cosmopolitan’s second and first floors respectively.

Theo-Mass Lexileictous was the first in this collaboration to showcase his work in-studio from Feb. 21-Feb 25. Below are the remaining artist-in-residence participants that will be in P3Studio through March 24.

Friday, March 1 – Sunday, March 3
The Date Farmers
6 – 11 p.m.

Dynamic Mexican-American duo Carlos Ramirez and Armando Lerma’s experimental work with spray paint, bricolage, prison art, tattoos, pastel, oils and wood illuminate an element of folklore, swinging the door between worlds wide open. Their environment-based pieces often include desert creatures and indigenous elements with a nod to their journeys to Oaxaca. Credit for their majestic artwork stems from the fateful date farm which Ramirez dedicated hard sweat and labor to and Lerma’s father owned.

Friday, March 8 – Sunday, March 10
Bert Rodriguez
6 – 11 p.m.

Miami-bred artist Bert Rodriguez shows his unidentifiable style of art through an array of methods which explore the relationships between art and artistic value. Rodriguez works with a range of media, in different styles and genres. He uses various methods to translate his ideas, which explore the relationship existing between audience and art. Rodriguez uses wit and irony in creating work that deals with the human experience.

 

Friday, March 15 – Sunday, March 17
Alan Aldridge
6 – 11 p.m.

Aldridge was born in London but currently resides in Los Angeles.  He first worked as an illustrator at “The Sunday Times Magazine,” and later became the art director of Penguin Books. As art director he specifically focused on science fiction book covers and introduced his style which resonated with the mood of the time, the early 1960s. His creative designs and intoxicating images captured the dreams of a generation – in The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, on album covers for Elton John, The Who, and Cream and on the infamous Chelsea Girls poster for Andy Warhol. During the 1960s and 1970s he was responsible for many album covers, and helped create the graphic style of that era. His work was characterized by a flowing, cartoony style and soft airbrushing – very much in tune with the psychedelic styles of the times.

 

Friday, March 22 – Sunday, March 24
David LaChapelle
6 – 11 p.m.

Connecticut-born David LaChapelle began his photography career in the 1980s when he started showing his artwork in New York City galleries. His work caught the eye of Andy Warhol, who gave him his first job as a photographer at Interview magazine. He went on to befriend celebrities, which led to his experimentation directing music videos, theatrical events and documentary films, reaching out to individuals’ unconsciousness with profound social messages. A former Tel Aviv Museum’s “Artist of the Year” and Sundance Film Festival award winner, LaChapelle’s work has been featured in New York’s famed Lever House, Interview Magazine, Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone and across the globe in Shanghai. LaChapelle is known for combining a hyper-realistic aesthetic with social messages.

P3Studio is an artist-in-residence program that invites international and local artists to create projects that are interactive, participatory and that give guests the opportunity to connect with art at an authentic and personal level. The viewer can watch an artist at work, enter the studio and engage with them while experiencing the immersive installations.
