Ronin Gallery
1924 Echo Park Ave
Los Angeles CA 90026

the RONIN.GALLERY is proud to present our first 2 man show with Weirdo and Ego Thursday April 16th! Burgeoning Heliotrope is sure to be an amazing show with the amount of talent these two artists have! Both artists will be flying down from Seattle to transform our gallery and show us their new works! Please come meet the artists and join us for a night of art, drinks and laughs! Ego is a Seattle based artist with a flair for slightly dark, whimsical creepiness, influenced by the macabre sides of tattoo culture, street art, and underground fine art. His work has been featured in galleries across North America, and published in many various media... and worn on the skin of his tattoo clients.

Adhering to the confines of classification, one might see Weirdo’s work in the light of pop surrealism or lowbrow if you must. Using oils in an organic painterly fashion, Weirdo devises worlds beyond comprehension. He melds imagery native to his northwest inhabitance and couples it with a highly graphic sense of rhythm and flow. Add to this the ever present life force represented by his “Orgns”, his love for digital embellishments, and then you get a small glimpse of the havens Weirdo marinates in. In the infinite pursuit of greatness, Weirdo extends his talents into the realms of large-scale murals, custom vinyl toys, as well as graphic and product design.

Nationally acclaimed artists, residing in Seattle, both will be at the Opening Reception for their show "
Burgeoning Heliotrope" on April 16, 2009. For more information, please contact: Contact for the artists directly is as follows. EGO: or email WEIRDO: or email
