Let us share with you our visit to the Beverly Hills Art Show last weekend where creativity knows no bounds, where artistry meets sophistication, and where every brushstroke tells a story. The Beverly Hills Art Show was held from May 18th to 19th, and it was more enchanting than ever before!

The Beverly Hills Art Show is a renowned event that celebrates art and creativity in the heart of Beverly Hills, California. Held multiple times throughout the year, typically in May and October, the art show brings together artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts from around the world. The venue is at Beverly Gardens Park where you can find the iconic Beverly Hills sign. 

Set on 4 blocks along Santa Monica Blvd between Roden and Rexford Drive, the event was big and attracting so many visitors. We circled around the blocks multiple times to find parking, haha.  

This year, the show featured 230 artists exhibiting their original works in various mediums - sculptures, paintings, photography, NFTs, glass art, woodwork, metal works, mixed media, and many more. 

Artists showcased their latest creations, providing attendees with the opportunity to explore and purchase unique pieces directly from the creators themselves. Below are some of the interesting artists we resonated with.

Through his art, Mayhem explores themes of chaos, transformation, and individuality, inviting viewers to see familiar objects in a new and unexpected light. 

As huge fans of Medicom Toy's Bearbricks, we were excited to see this 1000% Bearbrick. 

How unique! 

It was such a fun and enriching event. We are definitely attending again in the fall. And we are hinting we purchased some artworks at the show. We'll do a separate post on those. 

May the colors of the paintings, the shapes of the sculptures, and the melodies of the music continue to resonate within us, reminding us of the boundless potential of human imagination. 

Until next time,
