Safe From Harm - Short Stories by Lou Pimentel



Up next for Dragatomi is a fantastic show exhibiting all new works titled "Safe From Harm - Short Stories by Lou Pimentel"


Through his latest show Lou Pimentel explores the feelings one may have when inhabiting new spaces alone and the feelings of isolation that may be involved. Being isolated is not necessarily a bad thing. When alone we have the opportunity to reflect on life and what we have been through.

These paintings are intended to bring the viewer into them and come up with their own conclusions. How do the protagonists feel about their situations? Are these creatures safe or in harms way?

This show opens on Saturday December 11th and runs until January 2nd 2011. The opening reception is on Saturday December 11th from 6-10 pm.

Please be sure you stop by and check this out. This is one show you surely do not want to miss.

See you all there!

A little info about Christopher Lee:

Christopher Lee is a multi-disciplinary designer and illustrator of sorts who works under the moniker The Beast is Back. He is a Sacramento native and is a graduate from Sacramento State University and has a degree in graphic design. His entire life has revolved around drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil.

Speaking of pencils...

The way he holds his pencil has often been referred to as “the claw”.

His favorite quote comes from Picasso as he states "Art washes away `sums up his personal philosophy.

In July of 2006, he moved to Southern California in search of new inspiration and surroundings. Since then he worked as an Art Director for the Sacramento grown street and skate culture magazine Vapors and from there switched gears and was recruited to the motion graphics studio, Buck, where he also worked as an Art Director.

In October of 2009, he said goodbye to Buck and decided to go rogue. He currently resides in Burbank and works as a full-time freelance illustrator for a variety of clientele including Target, Hasbro, Nike, Absolut, and Adobe.

In addition to his freelance work, he and his girlfriend continue to work on their growing greeting card and home decor brand The Birds & The Beasts.
