Event Description

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to premiere LA native CANTSTOPGOODBOY’s newest solo show, It’s Not Glitter, It’s Stardust, opening Saturday, June 23 in Gallery Two. This is his first time showing at the gallery. The exhibit is a new experiment for the artist, finding ways to implement glitter (or as he calls it, “stardust”) as a medium in nearly every new piece—as paint, an accent, even a background.

In It’s Not Glitter, It’s Stardust, CANTSTOPGOODBOY is also premiering some never-before seen characters, including a new astronaut, a cowboy, additions to his rockstars series, and some new twists on the popular figures that have appeared in many of his works. Lions will continue to be a recurring theme.

Glitter isn’t the only new medium CANTSTOPGOODBOY is experimenting with for this exhibition: he’s going 16-bit as well. Recently, he acquired a vintage and fully operational arcade cabinet—with a joystick and buttons made for mashing. He completely refinished the outside to turn it into a top-to-bottom CANTSTOPGOODBOY artwork. But the inside got a makeover as well. One of his colleagues is a talented coder, and in a matter of two days, built a vintage 16-bit video game from scratch where players must recreate one of CANTSTOPGOODBOY’s signature artworks.

The opening reception for CANTSTOPGOODBOY’s It’s Not Glitter, It’s Stardust will be hosted Saturday, June 23 from 7pm – 11pm in the Gallery Two. The reception is open to the public and the exhibit will be on view through July 21. The space is open Tuesday – Saturday, 12pm – 6pm. Corey Helford Gallery is located at 571 S. Anderson St. Los Angeles, CA 90033.
