Join us Saturday, March 16, 2019 from 6-10 pm to celebrate the opening reception of Scott Johnson’s 


(Exhibition will run from March 16th, 2019 - April 27th, 2019)

This body of work chronicles a series of ongoing investigations in mixed-media art which formulate a dialectic between a universe of rationalized form and one of intuition.This dialectic metaphorically stands in for a range of interplays, among them, geometric form as a metaphor for received knowledge versus free form as a metaphor for invention/spontaneity, familiar elements from our media-scape versus the unfamiliar, praxis versus projection, gravity versus levitation and so on. The art-making process of layering various materials allows for the creation of depth and dimension, a curation which both buries certain meanings while allowing others to emerge.

Jason Pulgarin’s “CLASS WARFARE

Join us Saturday, January 12th from 6-10 pm to celebrate the opening reception of Jason Pulgarin’s “CLASS WARFARE

CLASS WARFARE” - Noun; The struggle for the political and economic power carried on between capitalists and workers.

Eastern Projects Gallery is pleased to announce Jason Pulgarin’s solo exhibition, “CLASS WARFARE”, running from Saturday January 12th to February 23rd. The opening reception will take place on January 12th from 6 - 10 pm, with a closing reception on February 23rd from 6 - 10 pm.

CLASS WARFARE” - Noun; The struggle for the political and economic power carried on between capitalists and workers.

This collection is the exploration of the ongoing war between upper and lower class, told through famous renaissance paintings. History shows us that this struggle is nothing new, so historic masterworks have been deconstructed and broken down to their simplest form. With this Jason hopes to convey a series of emotions that tells a story of hope for the poor and the pursuit of power for the rich.

“I have modernized the traditional canvas, a tool mostly used by the aristocracy, with the use of a material most commonly associated with the undeserved, Spray paint.”  - Jason Pulgarin

The separation of upper and lower class is a continuous battle in all human cultures across the globe. With today’s political climate in Los Angeles, it sets a well lit stage to show the disparity between corporate opulence and working class struggle.


In January 2018, the Los Angeles Magazine selected five artists as the top 5 Los Angeles based neon artists to follow on Instagram.

Eastern Projects is proud to present four of the five artists in the exhibition, “All Lit Up” July 28 - August 25, 2018. These four artists are all lit up when it comes to choice of media to use in their art making practice. Their different approaches to neon show compelling and original viewpoints.

Michael Flechtner’s work reflects his sense of humor. With fingers on the pulse of contemporary culture, he plays with language, pop imagery, rebuses and lovingly create artworks with a continuing reverie for the craft of neon glass bending and all the artists and craftsmen who came before him. 

Leticia Maldonado is influenced by the elegant bravado of graffiti, the super energetic independence of punk rock and the special space-time visual beauty of comic books. Leticia uses neon and tube bending to explore botanical forms and symbols of personal power.

Linda Sue Price is known for injecting her personal reflections to stimulate emotion and to manipulate how neon is perceived as a medium. Elements of historic neon signs, abstract expressionism, social realism, pop art and graphic design influence her work.

Lisa Schulte uses neon to explore work that provokes a broader dialogue pertaining to relativity and environmental adaptation. In collaboration with set designer Jason Howard, they created a mixed media installation piece about the ‘selfie’. Howard is interested in the intersection of technology, perception and sense of self in the modern world.
