Bryan Valenzuela

Bryan Valenzuela is the man of the hour; and not just because of his amazing show “Form Lore” at Beatnik Studios.

Bryan was also one of the artist awarded the job of creating public artwork at the new Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento. If that wasn’t enough, he is also the front man of the band “Exquisite Corps”

I had a few chances to visit Bryan’s studios leading up to the opening of his show. Enjoy the photos, and make sure to visit Beatnik Studios to see his new body of work.

Beatnik is open
Tuesday 10am – 5pm
Wed & Thurs 11:30am – 5pm
and by appointment

“Form Lore” has a public reception on 1st Friday, November 4th from 6pm – 9pm
