Art in Chinatown
Chinatown, Downtown Los Angeles
On Saturday, our friend Tetsuji Aono had an art opening at the L2kontemporary Gallery in Chinatown. It was a really interesting show. You can read about the exhibit focus here. We always see lots of friends at art shows too, so it's a fun evening. I really like Tetsuji's mirror decal pieces. The one of the poodle with some sort of chicken in his head is most enticing to me.Tetsuji's Poodle Mirror
Before the show we stopped at Hop Woo on North Broadway for a bowl of soup. They serve the best War-Wonton Soup....it's chock full o' chicken, vegies, pork, shui mai dumplings, etc. served in a rich and tasty broth. The soup was perfect for a cold and blustery evening.Larry @ Hop Woo Restaurant
After dinner we walked the few blocks to the Gallery. It's always fun walking thru Chinatown at night. The neon lights around the shops in the square are always bright. It's very tourist-y, but there's nothing wrong with that! I love being a tourist in my own home town!
I hope Tetsuji sells out. His work is wonderful.
