Greenly Art Space, 2698 Junipero Ave., Suite 113 in Signal Hill, will host Los Angeles-based artist Ivan DeAvy’s latest installment, entitled Story of Birds, on Saturday, May 4. There will be two performances: one oriented to all ages, and the other for an audience of adults 18 and older, which is expected to push the boundaries of urban-art performance.
The installation is described as “a simple boy-meets-girl story told by DeAvy using live actors, multimedia video projection, and music.” This will be the sixth time this performance has taken place in front of a gallery audience.
DeAvy was born Mexico City. At age 22, he opened his first art studio in Long Beach. Now, at the age of 29, he has established his studio in the heart of Los Angeles and displays his paintings in the LA underground scene. In 2008, he wrote and produced the first of five art performances. Since then, he has staged his unique style in front of a wide range of audiences. Spending his time either working on his art or traveling, he creates paintings, sculptures and art performances that portray “the things that I see and hear day to day,” according to DeAvy.
The first performance on May 4, for all ages, will be at 6pm. The second show, for adults only, will be at 8pm. The event is free to the public, and no RSVP is needed.
