Tattoo icon and legend Rick Walters will be missed by us all here at Art Center Gallery in the Westminster Mall.
Rick visited our tattoo shop in the gallery and did several art and tattoo shows with us over the years. He was one of the most recognizable names and faces in tattoo history.
Rick shared with the world 60 years of his tattooing (over 50 as a professional) and witnessed SoCal's tattooing scene grow from its infancy. We were privileged to work along side this local native and will always remember his iconic “RICK WALTERS HATES YOU” stickers and classic stories. He was an inspiration to many.
Rest in Peace Rick Walters

What the heart wants and the heart needs can be found in a Fabio Napoleoni painting. Nostalgia, sorrow and moments that lift the soul are all there for the world to see and experience along with him. The vivid colors and captivating characters invite you into an emotional ride that is welcomed by the mind and the heart. Simple landscapes set the stage to the value of emotional attachment that can be compared to no other. Influences from some of this century's greatest artists are hard to find in his pieces, but are drenched deep in the fabric of what puts a Napoleoni painting together.
Be sure to pre-order now to be signed and personalized by Fabio IN PERSON at our show next Friday February 8th!

Chet Zar and Gabe Leonard visit Art Center Gallery together!
Chet is known for his dark art and stranger things including monsters, special effects, digital animation, and dark imagery. His work includes unique paintings, sculptures and more. The original characters Chet creates seem like creatures from another dimension. Much of his creative work evokes feelings of fear, loneliness, insecurity, and vulnerability.
Gabe Leonard, the Cinematic Artist from Los Angeles, is known for creating rich modes of expressive art. He is a seasoned figurative painter creating images full of narrative possibilities. His trademark paint runs and drips in his work allow artistic expression and break free from the traditional norm. You can find heroes in his collection such as Rembrandt, Alphonse, Mucha, Gustav Kilmt and Egon Schiele.
... “I could not think of a better character to fill the position of the joker. Mr. Bunny Boozehound is my party animal and wise cracking character who can often be found in odd situations sporting a cocktail.” - Fabio Napoleoni
