The petrolheads oogled a couple or three supercars including a 2018 70th Anniversary Ferrari 488 Spyder and a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose.
The cars were set against a backdrop of artworks by Tyler Shields.
Tyler Shields, Photographer / Artist
Born in Jacksonville, Florida and now known as “Hollywood’s favorite photographer”, L.A. based contemporary artist and filmmaker Tyler Shields’ evolution from the “bad boy of photography” with his controversial blood-stained photographic series featuring Lindsay Lohan to the more subtle color-explosive poesy of his Chromatic series, and his work featuring Francesca Eastwood (Clint’s daughter) to the fire-starting bag-sawing antics of a $100,000 Hermes Birkin Bag, to the stoic magic surrealism of Suspense, a project shot in the New Mexico desert featuring Francesca Eastwood, Emma Roberts and Lydia Hearst, Mr. Shield’s art captures the emergence of an artist and his medium into a more mature overture and output. Tyler Shields is an American image-maker.
‘To expose yourself to the world, you and your work, naked to the global theater of billions of views, clicks, hits, image-searches, etc, is a remarkable statement within itself – to say – this is me and who I am, is powerful.’ — Tyler Shields
The juxtaposition of fast cars, provocative art and loose inhibitions could only work in West Hollywood.
Despite the “damp” weather, a good time was had by all…..
