Here at The Standard, Hollywood we love a good artist (maybe even more so when they’re an East Coast transplant making their way in the City of Angels). Enter Van Neistat, one-part of the legendary NY art duo, The Neistat Brothers. On Saturday night we spotted him showing support for Ryan McGinness at our poolside Drawing Salon and felt compelled to give him a special shout-out after he dedicated this illustration to us and handed it over as he left the building at the end of the night. Grazie Mille Van, we love you longtime buddy!!
As you know, artist Ryan McGinness is in the midst of a whirlwind visit to Los Angeles. Despite his crazy schedule of gallery openings, parties, meetings, and art installs, he managed to find the time to fit in a little drawing. We’re happy to report that he spent last night sketching models in The Box at The Standard, Hollywood, a practice he plans to continue tonight and tomorrow from 9pm until midnight. Definitely stop by and watch some of Ryan’s Drawing Sessions. His creative process is mesmerizing and the ladies aren’t too hard on the eyes either.

Ryan McGinness continued his LA takeover on Saturday night by unveiling his Blacklight Paintings project in The Purple Lounge of The Standard Hollywood. The event - co-produced by The Standard and Country Club Projects - highlighted the launch of his wildly successful Blacklight Nudie Cards (available here) as pole dancers flexed their fluorescent flesh alongside guests (McGinness obligingly looked on with a glass of Guinness in hand). His ambitious West Coast takeover (read: seven openings in six weeks) continues this Saturday evening June 4th from 9pm with a live Drawing Salon Party featuring models posing poolside at The Standard Hollywood. See you there!

Ryan McGinness has been visiting Los Angeles and the palm trees and constant sunshine seem to be suiting him just fine, not that he’s had much time to enjoy them. In the past week and a half he’s had two art openings and set up elaborate installations at both The Standard, Hollywood and The Standard, Downtown LA.
Here are some of the photo highlights:

The time has come for Ryan McGinness’ next installment of Women: The Blacklight Series. We covered his previous exhibits within this series at Ryan’s premiere at Miami’s Art Basel last December and at Le Bain at The Standard, New York during Armory Week (missed it? Check out the video from that event).The Standard is proud to present Ryan’s latest installation on the west coast at The Standard, Hollywood and The Standard, Downtown LA with installations, events, live drawings, and exclusive Blacklight Nudie Cards.
